2 Kings 16-17; 2 Chronicles 28 God has his prophets, His Word, and the witnesses of even His enemies to remind us of the truth: obey God, and He will bless. It seems that this is the message we all need to hear. God will use even our enemies to remind us of His truth, yet we all, with hardened hearts, ignore Him and His Word. King Ahaz is a perfect example. King Ahaz was not a good king and these chapters. “In every city throughout Judah he set up high places to offer sacrifices to other gods. He angered the Lord God of his ancestors.”
[2Chron 28:25] God is a jealous God, and He will not share His glory with another, but men continue to ignore Him and His principles. Return to me, says the Lord God, and He will turn to you. “The Lord your God is merciful and compassionate; he will not reject you if you return to him.” [2Chron 30:9]
If you have walked away or turned from Him, take heart, and return to Him that He may bless you is a truth that we all need to hear and to apply.
