2 Kings 18:5-7  Hezekiah relied on the Lord God of Israel; not one of the kings of Judah was like him, either before him or after him. He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses. The Lord was with him, and wherever he went he prospered. He rebelled against the king of Assyria and did not serve him. (CSB)

“The LORD was with him, and wherever he went he prospered.”

What was the secret of Hezekiah’s success? 

”He remained faithful to the Lord and did not turn from following him but kept the commands the Lord had commanded Moses.“
‭‭2 Kings‬ ‭18‬:‭6‬ ‭CSB‬‬

To hear and obey God is the most important lesson we ever learn.

To hear and obey God is the most important lesson we ever teach. 

In large part, we get to choose our consequences. Hezekiah chose to hear and obey God. He was prosperous and successful because of it. 

What God promised, God fulfilled:

“Above all, be strong and very courageous to observe carefully the whole instruction my servant Moses commanded you. Do not turn from it to the right or the left, so that you will have success wherever you go. This book of instruction must not depart from your mouth; you are to meditate on it day and night so that you may carefully observe everything written in it. For then you will prosper and succeed in whatever you do.“
‭‭Joshua‬ ‭1‬:‭7‬-‭8‬ ‭CSB‬‬

It is important to remember that God’s idea of prosperity and success may look different from yours. God blesses us with prosperity and success not to impress people with how good we are but with how good he is. He wants to bless everyone with prosperity and success. He wants everyone to know from deep experience how good he is to those who love and honor him. 

God’s prosperity and success plan is not about our fantasies but about his dreams for us. His dreams are better than our fantasies every time. 

Turn from the life of a daydream believer to the life of a God-path follower. The adventures are real. The destinations are delightful. The life is fulfilling. The rewards cannot be counted with any currency offered by nations or employers.

I will hear and obey God and help others do the same. 

Our Father, make me ever-more acutely attuned to your voice. Give me an ever-greater confidence in your will and ways. Empower me to bless others as you bless me. Amen.

Daily D – Job 21:2-3

Job 21:2, 3

let this be the consolation you offer.
Bear with me while I speak;
then after I have spoken, you may continue mocking.”

Daily D – Job 13:1-5

Job 13:1-5 “Look, my eyes have seen all this; my ears have heard and understood it. Everything you know, I also know; I am not inferior to you. Yet I prefer to speak to the Almighty and argue my case before God. You use lies like plaster; you are all worthless healers. If only you would shut up and let that be your wisdom!”

Daily D – Job 11:13-18

Job 11:13-18 **

“As for you, if you redirect your heart
and spread out your hands to him in prayer —
if there is iniquity in your hand, remove it,
and don’t allow injustice to dwell in your tents —
then you will hold your head high, free from fault.
You will be firmly established and unafraid.
For you will forget your suffering,
recalling it only as water that has flowed by.
Your life will be brighter than noonday;
its darkness will be like the morning.
You will be confident, because there is hope.
You will look carefully about and lie down in safety.”

Daily D – Job 4:8

Job 4:8 “In my experience, those who plow injustice and those who sow trouble reap the same.”
