When Isaiah informed Hezekiah to put his house in order because God said Hezekiah would die. Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and reminded God that his heart was perfect toward him.
Before Isaiah even left the palace courtyard, God told Isaiah to go back to tell Hezekiah that God had heard his prayer and seen his tears and had granted fifteen more years to his life (Isaiah 38).
There are things that Hezekiah did that we should learn to do when we are in crisis.
What are they?
He turned his face away from the situation, so that all he could see was God. He had to get away from the apparent darkness and put his eyes on God.
He was alone with God in his thoughts. He reminded God of what He had promised before he made his bold request. He had confidence that God would come through for him…and He did.
When we turn our face away from the situation, we aren’t looking at what is wrong any more. Instead we are focused on God.
If we put Him in remembrance of His Word, we are focusing on how big our God is in comparison to our seemly impossible situation.
Then as we speak the promises that God has given us, we fill ourselves up on the Word. When we do this, we are able to make a bold request of God and expect Him to answer.
We are to come boldly before His throne of grace to find grace and mercy in our time of need (Hebrews 4:16).
We don’t deserve it. We can’t earn it. God loves us enough to give us this right as a child of God. Expect a miracle today. Expect Him to come through for you
