You Are God Alone
Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers, and read it; and Hezekiah went up to the house of Yahweh, and spread it before Yahweh. Hezekiah prayed before Yahweh, and said, Yahweh, the God of Israel, who sit above the cherubim, you are the God, even you alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth; you have made heaven and earth. 2 Kings 19:14 WEB
Hopelessly, Hezekiah looked over the city wall at the giant army. The city of Jerusalem was now surrounded by the same enemy who had destroyed all of their neighboring cities. Then Hezekiah the king turned to God. He took the threatening letter that Sennacherib had written them and spread it out before the Lord. He prayed and poured out his heart to God, and then God changed his circumstances.
That night an angel of the Lord went out and put to death 185,000 soldiers in the Assyrian army (2 Kings 19:35). They did not get to shoot an arrow at the city. All of the panic in Jerusalem was for naught, other than it inspired them to seek the Lord more seriously. The enemy army became a profitable treasure hunt, as the Israelites spent days picking through the vast treasure they had been carrying. Overnight a very bad situation, was turned into a very good one.
When you need help, the one to turn to is God. He alone is able to turn the tide in your favor. No one can stop His hand. No one can close the door that He opens. Others may let you down, He will not. When God is with you, who can stand against you? He is God alone, and there is no other.Prayer: Heavenly Father I look to You today. Deliver me Lord from the hand of my enemies. Set me free and turn the bad situation into a good one, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
