Word on King Hezekiah and how to deal with aspects of our lives that are distracting us from a committed relationship with God.

2 Kings 18:3-7 – [Hezekiah] did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, just as his father David had done.  He removed the high places, smashed the sacred stones, and cut down the Asherah poles.  He broke into pieces the bronze snake Moses had made, for up to that time the Israelites had been burning incense to it.  Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, the God of Israel.  There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before him or after him.  He held fast to the Lord and did not cease to follow him; he kept the commands the Lord had given Moses.  And the Lord was with him…


God wants a relationship and sometimes we’re unwilling to commit because of certain aspects of our lives that we’re afraid of being asked to let go of.  Remove your high places and smash your sacred stones.  God’s rewards will far outweigh what you’ll leave behind.
