Let God!

“…Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the LORD, "Remember, O LORD, how I have walked before you faithfully and with wholehearted devotion and have done what is good in your eyes." And Hezekiah wept bitterly…” 2 Kings 20:2-3 NIV [italics & emphasis mine]

Doing our things our way is as natural as scratching our body when it itches; God almighty has made us this way for His own glory—for a time and place. May be its just me, but time and again I fail to Let God when I ought to. When my car brakes down—I call my mechanic; I need money—I call my bank; I am hungry—I call Chinese takeaway or Pizza hut; I get sick—I call my doctor; marriage problem—I call my counsellor…where do I stop and call God first?

There are times when God allows life to put us in a situation where ONLY God can take us out of it. King Hezekiah was told by the Prophet of God that he was going to die of the illness he had. Lucky for him, he knew better than to call his Royal Doctors; he turned to God and PLEADED with Him, reminding him “the good old times” and God answered him. Sometimes, the only way God can get our attention is when He allows impossible circumstances in our life—will you turn to Him before this happens? “…Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you…” Psalms 32:9 NIV
