2 Chronicles 31:21
There is a way to ensure that you prosper in what you do: serve the Lord with all your heart! Hezekiah, King of Judah, lived in a dangerous and tumultuous time. He faced powerful enemies. Idolatry was the popular religion of the day. His parents had rejected God and encouraged people to worship other gods (2 Chronicles 28). Hezekiah had the opportunity to re ject God as well, yet he chose to serve God with all of his heart. He did everything in his power to promote worship of the true God diligently follow God’s commandments. As a result of Hezekiah’s thrived in an unsettled time because he resolved to follow God despite popular opinion.
God will honor the heart that commits to follow Him (2 Chronicles 26:5). In time when worshiping God is not in vogue and when the forces of day oppose Him, it takes courage and resolve to seek after God. God is pleased to prosper those who strive to to please Him rather than to seek the approval of people (1 Samuel 2:30). Hezekiah stands in stark contrast to Rehoboam an earlier king of Judah. It is said of Rehoboam that “he did evil, because he did not prepare his heart to seek the lord” (2 Chronicles 12:14) . When you do not set your heart to seek the Lord, calamity is the inevitable result. The surest way to prosper in your endeavors is to diligently pursue the will of God.
