PASTORS' DAILY DEVOTIONAL
Trust God CompletlyMarcus Sanders
2Chr 32:26 Hezekiah humbled the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so that the wrath of the Lord did not come on them in the days of Hezekiah.
God gave King Hezekiah great success. The word says there was not a king like him after or before. He did what was good, right and true before the Lord. It says that God left him alone only to test him that He might know all that was in his heart. (v. 31) Can God trust us with the things we have?
When we choose to do good, right and true in the sight of God, He promises in the Bible that He will make our ways straight. We are promised protection, joy, and daily needs. But blessings can tip the scale in season of abundance and move our hearts to be prideful. Pride is a nasty sin that focuses on me alone. Hezekiah was choked with the scale of abundance to the point that God was on the outside and he was on the inside. This is where we need a turning point of commitment. When too much of a good thing comes my way a rededication is in order to the Lord.
Father, help me never lose sight of You. I know You will bless me with the extras, but I never want that to ever stop me from loving You. Lord, You have been with me in the lean times and I trusted You completely. But in the times of sweetness, fatness and plenty I want to be a conduit of Your grace. Thank You Lord for being in my life.
