King Hezekiah had received bad news that Sennacherib, king of Assyria would destroy the city of Jerusalem. In fact, this king had sent messengers to make everybody nervous. They were spreading news of all that had happened to other cities that had confronted them. All destroyed. They even said. “Look! You have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by utterly destroying them; and shall you be delivered?”. In other words, do you really think you have a chance?
They were in such despair that the pregnant women were at the point to give birth, but the scripture says they had no strength to bring the children forth. They did not had the desire to birth their child into what they thought was certain death. They were feeling hopeless, everything around them screamed, were are finished.
In middle of all this king Hezekiah, received a word from the Lord that he would defend the city, and that was all he needed to hear. The scripture says that the angel of the Lord went out into the camp of the Assyrians and killed one hundred and eighty-five thousand: and when they woke up all they say was dead bodies. Sennacherib fled. King Hezekiah did not move a muscle, the Lord had defended the city.
We often let our sight blind our vision, and the two are very different. Sight will always limit you, what you are able to see is what determines who, what and where you are or could possibly be. Vision is a whole different story, vision is limitless. And when your vision is supported with a word from God, you don’t have to fear anything.
Are you facing today what seems to be certain failure? Is your heart in despair? Is your economic situation in jeopardy? Is your sight blinding your vision? Let me remind you that before the child is born, the pain is greater. So be strong, set forth your child, you are at the point to give birth. He has promised that by the same way the enemies came, they will return.
His word is clear, He will defend the city, and He will defend you!
