Greetings Brethren:

Almighty God will bless those that honor Him. However many people today worship man and things (Preachers and Money) therefore God is a secondary consideration. Get your house in order God has the power to render salvation not man. If you don't realize this fact then you are a non-believer.

In the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.

The Bible records that Hezekiah had a close relationship with God. He was king of Judah for 29 years form 724 to 695 B.C. The story of Hezekiah is recorded in 2 Kings 18-20, 2 Chronicles 29- 32 and Isaiah 36-39.

Hezekiah as a good king was aware of Gods acts in the past and his interest in the present. He called for civil and religious reforms. He was also a great man of prayer. The Book of Proverbs reveals that Hezekiah was a patron of several chapters (Proverbs 25:1).

2 Kings 20:1 also see verses 5 and 1-11. "In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And the Prophet Isaiah the son of Amoz came to him, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord, get thine house in order; for thou shalt die, and not live."

Being gravely ill Hezekiah turned to God in prayer. Revealing to God that he had walked in truth with a perfect heart he relied on scripture to invoke favor from God.

20:5. 'Turn again and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayers, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord."

In many cases God spoke directly to his servants, however in most instances he spoke through his prophets. (See Hebrews 1:1). As a good king Hezekiah holds the distinction as the only faithful king over a 100-year period of Judah's history (732-640 B.C.). Hezekiah stood out as a faithful servant of God because of his faith and prayer. God healed Hezekiah and saved his city from the Assyrians.

20:19. Although Hezekiah had been a faithful king he showed human weaknesses. The deliverance of Hezekiah from sickness and his prosperity caused him to be puffed up and filled with pride. Rather than give God the credit for all of his blessings he tried to impress the Babylonians with his wealth. God does not bless us to use his blessings to impress others. Our greatest blessings are found in our testimony that God has worked wonders in our lives.
