God is above all

Hello, God has given me something in 2 Chronicles 32:21 which says,

“And the LORD sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the commanders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. So he withdrew to his own land in disgrace. And when he went into the temple of his god, some of his sons, his own flesh and blood, cut him down with the sword.”

Sennacherib: Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, though that he was better than God. He laid Hezekiah’s cities on siege. He told Hezekiah and the people, that God was like any other god. He told them that God was not going to deliver them out of his hand. But, Hezekiah and a prophet cried out to God, and God heard. He sent an angel who annihilated all Sennacherib’s fighting men, commanders, and officers. So, Sennacherib withdrew in disgrace. When he went to the temple of the god he served, some of his own sons killed him.

Us: We are disgraceful. We are stuck in our sin, and we don’t know what to do. We are like Sennacherib, not including the part where he took over many other cities, and laid siege on Hezekiah’s city. We are retreating disgracefully in our sin. We are sinking in our sin (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z6tFzOYFZ30&feature=related). There seemed to be no hope for us.

Saved: There was a hope for us. His name was/is Jesus. He gave His own life for us on a cross. Jesus loved/loves us so much that He died in place of not just one sinner, but the whole world full of sinners. Jesus is that solid rock, not sinking sand.

Application: How does 2 Chronicles 32:21 apply to us? Sennacherib is a picture of Satan, he laid siege to Hezekiah’s city. The people might have though that they would die. But God delivered them from Sennacherib’s hand. Jesus died on the cross. That might have seemed horrible to the disciples, but, Jesus rose again three days later, delivering us from sin.

Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father,

Thank You for giving Your son for us on the cross. Thank You for loving us so much. I pray that I would draw close to You, I pray that I would love You more. Help me to long to be with You. Please help me to run to You if I need help. I pray that I would hunger for Your word. Thank You for making me Your daughter. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
