Our cry to the Lord sincerely is not just a mere crying; it is a prayer that needs attention. The Lord said we are to seek Him even at the point when things mostly difficult. Hezekiah the king of Israel proof to the Lord that His hands need to move towards his direction and His hear attentive to his cry. The king makes it known to the Lord Jehovah that his truthful service and perfect worship to His name is worth moving the hands of the Lord towards Him.
“In those days was Hezekiah sick unto death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz came unto him and said unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Set thine house in order, for thou shalt die and not live. Then Hezekiah turned his face toward the wall and prayed unto the LORD, And said, Remember now, O LORD, I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart and have done that which is good in thy sight. And Hezekiah wept sore. Then came the word of the LORD to Isaiah, saying, Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus saith the LORD, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer; I have seen thy tears behold, I will add unto thy days fifteen years. And I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and I will defend this city.” Isaiah 38:1-6 (JUB)
The Lord wants us to challenge Him to move towards our direction seeing that many are they that are seeking Him and seriously need His attention. His attention mostly is directed towards the proven right minded and people who are steadfast in relating to Him. The Prophet Isaiah furthered while addressing the Israelite that about the moving hand of Jehovah. “Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear: But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.” Isaiah 59:1-2 (KJV)
Brethren can you really proof yourself as strong as the King Hezekiah did to the Lord and there was an addition to the numbers of his years? If no, then you will really have to do a great work to move the hands of the Lord towards your direction. The Lord wants us to challenge Him on our truthful service towards Him. He is ready to face every of our challenge and make them work for our good.
I pray that the Lord will take serious attention to our matters in Jesus name. Amen. Have a great day brethren and enjoy the goodness of God kept for the day in Jesus name. Amen. Good morning.
Prophet Johnson Oluwagbenga Adeniyi
