Again and again the Lord had sent his prophets and seers to warn both Israel and Judah: “Turn from all your evil ways. Obey my commands and decrees—the entire law that I commanded your ancestors to obey, and that I gave you through my servants the prophets.”

But the Israelites would not listen. They were as stubborn as their ancestors who had refused to believe in the Lord their God.

VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Hezekiah trusted the LORD

"Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, the GOD of Israel."

Hezekiah's trust in the LORD should or must be like the trust of CHRISTians to GOD, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Trusting GOD gives us perfect peace. Perfect peace is turmoil and destruction around you but still you are in peace. Perfect Peace from GOD is sourced from the internal (who is inside of us) not in external things.

Proverbs 3:5 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.

John 14:1-2 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in GOD, and trust also in me.

There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you?

Isaiah 26:3 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in you, all whose thoughts are fixed on you!

Isaiah 50:10 (New Living Translation, Second Edition)

Who among you fears the Lord and obeys his servant? If you are walking in darkness, without a ray of light, trust in the Lord and rely on your GOD.

B. No king like him in his faith

"There was no one like him among all the kings of Judah, either before or after his time."

Our goal is to excel in our faith, spiritual life, because we live by faith not by sight. Success is defined in the bible as the LORD GOD is with us, that's success not having money or many properties.
