Purposefully Pushing Forward
Today's reading: 2 Chronicles 31:1-21
Hezekiah was on a mission to reestablish God as the head and God of Israel. As we reach 2 Chronicles 31, Hezekiah is a little further into his reign and he hasn’t slowed down one bit. His purposeful pushing forward for God continues as he rids the land of idol worship and organizes the priests and the Levites so that they can do the work, and function the way, God intended.
I find Hezekiah’s example encouraging for sure, but also motivating. His “all in” heart for God is inspiring. As I read the final verses of chapter 31, I thought to myself—I want to be like Hezekiah!
“Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and faithful before the LORD his God. And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God and in accordance with the law and the commandments, seeking his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered” (vs.20-21).
Would you describe your heart as being “all in” for God? What’s one thing you can do this week to model Hezekiah’s example of serving and promoting God to those around him? Tami
