"And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for my own sake, and for my servant David's sake." 2Kings 20:6
IN JESUS TODAY!
God is not willing that any should perish. Throughout the sixty six books of the Bible there are many themes, one of these is that Jesus came to give us life. God never intends for us to die early or for us to be punished by death. In fact, he is only desiring us to live, and to live well. As we read in John 10:10, "The thief cometh not but for to kill, steal, and destroy; I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." Here Hezekiah became sick and was told to prepare his house because soon he would die, but Hezekiah, not wanting to die, cried out to God and pleaded his cause and God being merciful told Hezekiah that he would live another fifteen years.
There are many who live their life with this same heart, a heart to save others, these life, saving societies and people that work hard to save lives are often Underappreciated, we should all thank God for his mercy and for the people that help to show this through saving lives each day. Jesus is a God that loves to save lives and to see us prosper in the good things in life.
"And Isaiah said, Take a lump of figs. And they took and laid it on the boil, and he recovered." 2Kings 20:7 God heals, God saves, and God loves. He is a giver of life and stands always to defend life! Live today with the giver of a good life at your side, accept Jesus and all that he wants to give to you!
