In everything that he undertook in the service of God’s temple and in obedience to the law and the commands, he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.
King Hezekiah determines that he will live his life wholly serving the one true God. Nothing is done without prayerful worship. Today’s scripture describes him as seeking God first in everything he does, whether running a country or in his personal life. He is determined to influence his environment rather than have the environment influence him. The result is great success. He prospers!
As children of the most high God, we are carriers of his presence and can change the communities we find ourselves in. We can be a catalyst for Christ, or we can go with the flow. We must decide whether we will seek God in all things. We must desire to please God in our homes, workplaces, families, and communities. We must decide if we will be the change we want to see in our spheres of influence.
When we are sincere in wanting to bring glory to God, he will be the one to give us great success. Matthew 6:33 reminds us to seek first God’s kingdom, and all other things will be added to us.
Father, we want to serve you. We desire to seek you in prayer, through your Word, and in our daily lives. We pray that you will give us the courage to live loudly for you in everything we do.
