The King Who Became Proud

There are a lot of temptations that can trip us up in life, but for whatever reason, pride is one of the more difficult to avoid. Pride has a way of sneaking up on us, showing up when we least expect it. We don’t see it coming; it often flies in under the radar. If we’re not careful our ego can begin to swell… we start patting ourselves on the back and congratulating ourselves for being so talented and capable and wise. Watch out! It doesn’t take long for the heart to fill with conceit, and down we go!

The King Who Faced Death

We don’t like to admit to admit how fleeting life is, but Scripture reminds us: “Man is like a mere breath; His days are like a passing shadow.” (Psalm 144:4) That’s not something that most people want to deal with. We’d rather not think about it, and try to convince ourselves: we still have plenty of time, that’s a long ways down the road. But the reality is, death can come suddenly, without warning, no matter how old or young we are. We don’t know how much time we’ve been given on this earth, God’s people should place your confidence in the one who does.

The King Who Prayed

God is not deaf. He is listening intently to the prayers of his children, and He will always hear us when we call out Him. We can approach our Heavenly Father anytime, day or night. No matter where we are, He is always with us, eager for us to quiet our hearts and enter His presence. We can talk to Him about anything: our joys and sorrows, our failures and victories. And we can share with Him the concerns of our heart.

The King Who Trusted God

Where do you go, to find refuge, in times of crisis? Where do you turn, in moments of distress, when it feels like you are being attacked from every side? I’m not talking about the little things. I mean struggles that are so intense and overwhelming that you’re not quite sure how you’re going to make it through. It would be nice to have our own fortress, where no matter what happens you would know that within those walls you are secure.

The King Who Shared His Faith

Scripture tells us that we are called to be God’s messengers. Believers are called to deliver the good news of salvation to the people of this world. It is not always an easy task. In fact, we will often face challenges and obstacles and adversity as we seek to share the gospel with others. —So why do we do it? Because of the people – We want our neighbors, friends, and family members, along with every person the Lord brings into our life to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.

The King Who Worshiped God

We were made for worship. Human beings were wired, by God, for praise. But sometimes God’s people can lose sight of that, and we find ourselves going through the motions, without considering the significance of what we do. On Sunday morning, we might go away thinking more about what we’ve gotten out of the services: “…was I blessed?” instead of considering whether or our not we have expressed our affection to God. True worship is centered on the Lord, which means above all else believers should seek to bring honor to His name.

The King Who Cleaned House

During the reign of King Ahaz, the temple in Jerusalem had fallen into a state of disrepair. The sacred lamps were no longer burning, pagan idols littered the courtyards, eventually the doors were closed. When Hezekiah became king there was an urgent need for spiritual renewal. In 2 Chronicles 29:1-19 Hezekiah opened the doors of the temple, and cleaned house, bringing the people back to the Lord.

The King Who Served God

Hezekiah was one of the greatest kings in the Old Testament, not only in the eyes of men but more importantly in the sight of God. People often measure a leader’s success by their accolades and accomplishments, but God measures a leader’s success by their character. In 2 Kings 18:1-8, Hezekiah’s example encourages us to be that kind of leader in whatever position of influence the Lord places us.
