King Ahaz worshiped idols and promoted evil as written about in yesterday’s post. His actions resulted in troubling times for his people and rather than being faithful to God, he became even more disloyal which would lead to further decline.
It’s important to include God in every thought and activity throughout the day. Expect his presence all the time. Pray without ceasing and converse with Him while performing everyday tasks. He’s present now while you read. He’s present during good times and bad times.
As I read in 2 Chronicles, some kings are good and some are bad. We can be thankful that Christ is our perfect King today and here’s a video that reminds of His presence: Here Is Our King – David Crowder Band.
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. – Hebrews 12:1-2
