Pleasing in the Lord's sight!

Finally, "He did what was pleasing in the Lord's Sight"!! It seems like it's been so long that we have read this in our daily reading. Hezekiah finally did what was pleasing in the sight of the Lord.

The verse that really spoke to me was from 2 Kings 18: 5 ~ Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, The God of Israel. There was no one like him ...He remained faithful to the Lord in everything, and he carefully obeyed all the commands the Lord had given Moses. He trusted, he remained faithful, he obeyed and the big statement ~ So the Lord was with him and he was successful in everything he did. Wow!!! Powerful..nothing more needs to be said, does it...Ponder this thought today and remember our readings over the past several weeks about the men that didn't do what was favorable in the Lord's sight.

Trust, Have Faith, and Obey why is this so hard? God proves he is with us just like with Hezekiah...ponder it today..

Debbie, when I read 2 Kings18:3 and saw that Hezekiah had done what was pleasing in the Lord's sight, I hurried on to v.4 to see what Hezekiah did about the idols that had been left up by so many kings before him. Yea! Hezekiah removed them, he smashed them and cut them down! I found myself feeling pleased with him also.

Today, I pray that I do what is pleasing in the Lord's sight.
