Today's Devotion: Things Always Improve
When Hezekiah came to the throne of Israel, the land was traumatized by a reign of terror instituted by his father, King Ahaz. During his reign, he promoted child sacrifice, idolatrous worship, disastrous warfare, and religious persecution. He closed the temple of the Lord and prohibited anyone from worshiping Jehovah. When he died, his 25-year-old son Prince Hezekiah became king, and things changed quickly and dramatically. Hezekiah was a true worshiper of the Lord, and he immediately reopened the temple, mobilized the priests and Levites, reestablished worship, and promoted revival.
God prepared the people for that moment, and the land recovered more quickly than anyone could have imagined. The people rejoiced when the events took place so suddenly.
There’s a verse that says, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5). It is a faithful reminder that problems are temporary, but our blessings last forever. We persevere by faith and trust during the night, but as the dawn appears on the horizon, the sun rises quickly bringing hope and light. So don’t give up—God is preparing you to rejoice.
The best is yet to be and we can’t lose for winning!
