2 Chronicles 32 18 Then they called out in Hebrew to the people of Jerusalem who were on the wall, to terrify them and make them afraid in order to capture the city. 19 They spoke about the God of Jerusalem as they did about the gods of the other peoples of the world—the work of human hands. 20 King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah son of Amoz cried out in prayer to heaven about this.21 And the Lord sent an angel, who annihilated all the fighting men and the commanders and officers in the camp of the Assyrian king. So he withdrew to his own land in disgrace. And when he went into the temple of his god, some of his sons, his own flesh and blood, cut him down with the sword.
Like Jerusalem of old we are under siege today by a raft of the devils schemes. Especially at this time of year we are inundated with every sort of family, social, ethical, financial, and health crisis imaginable. At a time when we should be celebrating in our heart the coming of our great king we are dealing with all of the meanness, nastiness, and filth of the world around us. What recourse do we have? What relief is to be gained?
Simply this. Pray! And when your done praying, pray again. And when your’re finished with that, stand in your joy. I love the old Don Francisco lyric that says: Love is not a feeling it’s an act of your will.
If you only love with the expectation of that love being returned to you, you are missing the point. To love is to be obedient. To be loved is a blessing from God.
