When Hezekiah became king of Judah, he set on a course to restore the nation’s relationship with God that had been broken by many of the kings before him, including his father Ahaz. During his reign, Assyria was the leading power in the Middle East. The Assyrians had already invaded the Northern Kingdom of Israel and now they had their eyes on Judah, the Southern Kingdom. As Hezekiah prepared for an invasion by the Assyrians, he did a number of things. He stopped the water fountains from flowing at Gihon; he rebuilt part of Jerusalem’s wall that had been broken down while adding towers to them for defense of the city. He also prepared his army for a possible war with the Assyrians. But in this week’s lesson, we will see that what he did that counted the most when they went to war was to trust the LORD.
