Hezekiah's Tunnel

Trusting Like King Hezekiah

As we delve into the life of King Hezekiah, we discover timeless truths about faith and resilience in the face of overwhelming adversity. This week, we explore the spiritual fortitude of Hezekiah, who, despite the division of the kingdom and the threat of Assyrian invasion, demonstrated an unshakeable faith in God. We witness his strong leadership during the psychological warfare and the siege of Jerusalem, where he faced taunts from the Assyrian commander designed to instill fear and doubt among the people of Judah. Here are some key takeaways from the sermon:


  • King Hezekiah’s steadfast faith in God set him apart from other leaders, demonstrating the power of trust and obedience to the Lord, even amidst political upheaval and military threat.
  • The psychological warfare tactics used by the Assyrians to intimidate and sow doubt among the people of Judah mirror the spiritual battles we face today. Our response, like Hezekiah’s, should be humility and seeking God’s guidance.
  • Despite the reports and diagnoses we may face in life, no matter what the enemy says, or even what we have told ourselves, we are reminded that our ultimate source of truth and comfort comes from our faith in God.
  • The story of Hezekiah teaches us about the divine intervention and the might of God’s power, which can overcome even the most formidable enemies, as an angel of the Lord demonstrated by decimating an army in one night.
  • Our true strength comes not from ourselves but from Christ within us. In good times, it is easy to rely on our own abilities, but in times of trouble, we must remember to lay our concerns before the Lord.
  • An invitation to trust: regardless of the challenges we face, we are called to spread our worries before God and trust in His divine guidance.

It’s time to embrace trust in the Lord’s guidance to navigate life’s storms, learning from King Hezekiah’s unwavering belief in the face of great adversity. As we move through our week, let’s carry these lessons with us, renewing our commitment to trust in God and to face life’s challenges with the courage and faith exemplified by King Hezekiah.
