Hezekiah Prayer And Sermon On The Power Of The Word Of God.
HEZEKIAH PRAYER AND SERMON ON THE PRAYER OF THE WORD OF GOD. " Let the word of God dwell in you richly!- Colossi-ans 3:16" Have you ever noticed that if you spend time around people who have strong personalities, you will automatically be affected by them? As a believer, you are destined to be molded into the image of Jesus to grow in spirit until you look just like him. God's supernatural power began that process the moment you were born again. You were changed on the inside instantly. How successful you are in allowing this change to progress to the outer man is mostly up to you. We grow up spiritually just like we grow up physically. What can you do to speed this growing process long? Spend more time pursuing the thins of the spirit than you spend purshuing the things of the flesh. Become dedicated to the word of god and to be fellowship with Him. Be willing to pull side from the busy things of life and get alone with him, so He can guide you and share His likeness with you. To the enjoy the goodness of god in the land of the living, you must make yourself to Him by praying in spirit and worshiping and loving him. Hang around his word and the people who loved His word and live it. Before you know it, you'll begin to notice yourself changing . You'll find your character changing. You'll begin to think like He does and even act like he does. His image will begin shine forth in you. You remember, what happens to Hezekiah? God answers is prayer. Today, if you can say amen, god will answers your prayer today in the name of Jesus. The Lord Hears Hezekiah’s Prayer In those days Hezekiah was stricken with a terminal illness. The prophet Isaiah son of Amoz visited him and told him, “This is what the Lord says, ‘Give instructions to your household, for you are about to die; you will not get well.’” - Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, - “Please, Lord. Remember how I have served you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion, and how I have carried out your will.” Then Hezekiah wept bitterly. The Lord told Isaiah, “Go and tell Hezekiah: ‘This is what the Lord God of your ancestor David says: “I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Look, I will add fifteen years to your life, and rescue you and this city from the king of Assyria. I will shield this city.”’” Isaiah replied, “This is your sign from the Lord confirming that the Lord will do what he has said: Look, I will make the shadow go back ten steps on the stairs of Ahaz.” And then the shadow went back ten steps
