The Future of Our Children

In the book of 2 Kings chapter 20 a foreboding Word from God came to a king called Hezekiah. Isaiah the prophet said to him, “Hear the word of the Lord; ‘The days are coming when all that is in your house, and what your fathers have accumulated until this day, shall be carried to Babylon; nothing shall be left,’ says the Lord. ‘They shall take away some of your sons who will descend from you, whom you will beget and they shall be eunuchs in the palace of the king of Babylon.’

Now how can a man know that his descendants are going to be taken captive and not pray? It’s in this instance that we see the incredible selfishness in this man’s heart. In verse 19 he says, “‘The word of the Lord which you have spoken is good!’ For he said, ‘Will there not be peace and truth at least in my days?’

Let that spirit not be found in you and I. As the days before us grow darker the future of our children depends on what we choose do now. Hezekiah knew that God answered prayer, but for some mysterious reason he chose not to.

For you and I, it’s time to pray!

    Lord have mercy on us and all our descendants. That is my heart cry as a mother and a grandmother. Let God arise and His enemies be scattered.
