Not much is said about Hezekiah because his secret for success was simple and short. He trusted in the Lord, and that made him the the best king of Israel in history. What could we accomplish if we place our complete trust in God?
Our favorite verse in 2 Kings Chapter 18 is:
- The word trust comes from a Hebrew word that represents “rush to refuge, but not so abruptly.” That is to say that, when one has a safe place of protection, one should go there quickly but without panic, because the shelter is impregnable to the enemy. The important thing is to get to the shelter. That shelter is God.
- The secret of Hezekiah trusted in God was his determination to do what pleased God, he remained faithful and obeyed God’s commandments.
- Hezekiah enjoyed divine company and protection. God blessed him in all his undertakings. The biblical text states that Hezekiah was one of the greatest kings of God’s people.
