God Protects the People of Judah
Today I read 2 Chronicles 32 which completes the life of Hezekiah. In this chapter it contains a story where the Lord protected Judah against the kingdom of Assyria. The King of Assyria was coming to war against the Israelites and was trying to intimidate them by telling them that all the other nations of the world he had fought had fallen and none of their gods were able to stop him. The humorous part to me however is that in the midst of all of this, king Hezekiah and the prophet, Isaiah, prayed to God and Heavenly Father sent his angel who slew the king of Assyria's generals. When the defeated king of Assyria returned home, his children killed him. A very pathetic end for such a warrior king. But what a testimony for the people of the kingdom of Judah! The Lord spared them and they did not even have to fight at all. When we put our trust in Heavenly Father, things are better for us and we will never be let down. Until tomorrow.
