II Chronicles 31

“And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God and in accordance with the law and the commandments, seeking his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered” (v31). King Hezekiah’s righteous leadership had big consequences. As the people returned to fellowship with God, their revived faith caused them to reorder their lives. They got rid of their false idols (v1), and they gave tithes and offerings so that the spiritual leaders (priests and Levites) could “give themselves” to God’s work (v4).

Hezekiah’s faith translated into “good and right and faithful” service to God (v20). When our hearts are changed by God’s love and goodness, our lives cannot stay the same.
