Today's AHA moment. Reading Matthew Henry's commentary as I study 1 & 2 Kings. As you may know, generationally wicked kings ruled. Ad nauseam. Gets old reading how wicked they are in the sight of the Lord and makes you feel a bit hopeless about our future based on the generational leadership. AND THEN, God raises up one who loves Him, Hezekiah. And he tears down all the places of idol worship! Do not lose hope and think that the decline means it is perpetual. GOD IS ABLE to raise up one who loves Him and brings course correction. Pray for the leaders of our country. This was not an easy task for Hezekiah. Opposition was fierce and attack by the enemy was brutal. Come on Lord. We are committed to you and trust your promises to us are true. No matter what it looks like in the world.
