SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 29
Scripture: Isaiah 37:21,35,36
Hezekiah found himself in the midst of a mess. The enemy was invading. There was nowhere to turn and nowhere to go. So he turned to the Lord and he prayed against his enemy. Because he prayed against his enemy, the prophet Isaiah was turned around and sent back to give Hezekiah this word, “Thus says the Lord God of Israel, ‘Because you have prayed to Me against Sennacherib king of Assyria,…” We are told in verses 35,36, “For I will defend this city, to save it. For My own sake and for My servant David’s sake. Then the angel of the Lord went out, and killed in the camp of the Assyrians one hundred and eighty-five thousand; and when people arose early in the morning, there were the corpses—all dead.” Hezekiah prayed against his enemy and an angel was released and the king of Assyria was instructed about what happens when God’s wrath is kindled but a little. In today’s American Supreme Court, there are five justices that need instruction. By declaring homosexual marriage legal, they have invited the weakening of America. The land begins to cry out against those filling it with iniquity! The land begins to vomit out the inhabitants!
