2 King 18:9-19:37, Psalms 46,80,35


We start with a flash back.  It took me a minute of flipping around the Bible thinking I messed up because “we just read this”.  It was trippy for a minute).  So this will be a cool recap:

  • The king of Assyria: Sennacherib attacked and deported the Northern tribes.
  • The king of Judah: Hezekiah feared Assyria- and paid them tribute so they didn’t get attacked
  • The Assyrian’s in a speech basically said “You might as well surrender, you can’t put your confidence in your God”
  • Hezekiah goes to the Temple to pray to the Lord about the situation (about time someone did)
  • Much is said about Jerusalem will be attacked BUT will be delivered
  • Isaiah prophesies about Sennacherib’s fall

Psalms!!!!  Oh I need a Psalm!!

When I read “familiar” Scriptures in context, it always freaks me out! (In a good way)  When we read “Be Still” it is not when you are at a “thinking point” it is when you are under attack from Assyria and you run to the Temple to put it before the Lord.  You can’t hear him if you are not still!  ( trust me, I try it all the time)

God is our refuge and strength,
    an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
    and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
    and the mountains quake with their surging.

10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God;
    I will be exalted among the nations,
    I will be exalted in the earth.”

I just need this

  1. Funny think about the be still and know scripture is many people read it and think of some sign on the wall in home goods.
    I like to think of it like this: in our worst situations, what’s our first go to thought?
    In a high stress situation, do we let our mind race through a million outcomes or do we calm down and realize The Lord is with us?

  2. As I was reading Psalm 46:5 I thought how perfect this scripture was for my sister. My sister found out she has breast cancer during this corona season. God showed me in his timing this scripture for her. I love how as I read his word daily he fills me up and prepares me for life. He is equipping my mind for lies ahead, preparing my soul for eternity and healing my heart to love his people where they are. This daily reading is to me what my charger is to my cell phone! Thanks for your leadership and heart❤️

    1. Cindy, when people tell me they are behind and I say “you’re not”, you see why I say that. He had you RIGHT where He needed you to be. I know, and Love that we have this grand view of God- and we should BUT we really see how one on one He is with us when we are in His Word. I am sorry about your sister but I know God will continue to bring you words to be a witness, not just to her but to anyone who overhears you. God can use her health in a mighty way for the people in your midst. Praying for the situation (and that is not just an empty promise, I really will).
