In the late 7th century before the coming of Yeshua, Hezekiah was a king that “did what was right in the in the eyes of the Lord” (2 Kings 18:3). When the Assyrians conquered the northern kingdom of Israel and invaded Judah, however, the situation seemed hopeless. Hezekiah cried out to the Lord. God heard his prayers and sent the prophet Isaiah to proclaim the downfall of the Assyrians and the deliverance of Judah.
"That night the Angel of the LORD went out and put to death a hundred and eighty-five thousand men in the Assyrian camp. When the people got up the next morning - there were all the dead bodies. So Sennacherib king of Assyria broke camp and withdrew" (19:35-36).
If God can destroy an entire army and bring a mighty nation to its knees in one night, He is fully capable of meeting all the needs and fulfilling all the dreams that He initiates in our lives. The Bible is a testimony of God’s glory and power. And that same power that King Hezekiah and the people of Judah saw on that great day is available to you today! So let us pray bold prayers and expect the impossible!
