Isaiah 38 (ESV)

In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: Set your house in order, for you shall die, you shall not recover.” Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, and said, “Please, O Lord, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.....Continue Reading

  2. What a miracle God does for Hezekiah. This situation and his prayer are a good example of what we should do when faced with difficult circumstances. He approaches God and asks. He offers God reasons why He should answer in the affirmative, but then leaves it up to God. When he receives his answer, He exalts in God and expresses the difference between the emotions of facing death and the emotions that come when knowing he was to be healed and given more life. What a mighty God we serve!

  3. 1In those days Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. And Isaiah the prophet the son of Amoz came to him, and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: Set your house in order, for you shall die, you shall not recover.” 2Then Hezekiah turned his face to the wall and prayed to the Lord, 3and said, “Please, O Lord, remember how I have walked before you in faithfulness and with a whole heart, and have done what is good in your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly.
    4Then the word of the Lord came to Isaiah: 5″Go and say to Hezekiah, Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: I have heard your prayer; I have seen your tears. Behold, I will add fifteen years to your life. 6I will deliver you and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria
