“In the first month of the first year of his (Hezekiah) reign, he opened the doors of the temple of the Lord and repaired them.” 2 Chronicles 29:3.
Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading: 2 Chronicles 29-31, and James 4.
There had been a run of terrible kings but along came Hezekiah.
We have no idea what caused him to be so different from those before him but it must have been something significant. Talk about night and day!
What impressed me, among many things, was that Hezekiah started changing things for the better immediately. He didn’t settle into the job of King and think that eventually a change or two might be put in place. Not him, right away he is into getting the temple back into working order.
In my own life, I need to make immediate and significant changes. I need to do them now. Slowl surely doesn’t work. Too much falling back along the way. Get things right and stick hard to them.
Hezekiah never wavered and God was pleased with him. I want that from God. I want a consistently, Godly lifestyle. I want to do the right thing without looking back.
“Lord, You are my God. Guide me each step. Enable me to be full-time Godly. Prick my conscience when I am off-course and help me, I beg, to get things right at once. I love You, Father.”
I need to start each morning in a hurry to be filled with God.
