Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(2Kings 15:32 - 16:20
“The Pattern Of Destruction”
Text: 2 Kings 16:7
“So Ahaz sent messengers to Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria, saying, “I am your servant and your son. Come up and save me from the hand of the king of Syria and from the hand of the king of Israel, who rise up against me.”
“The Pattern of Destruction,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Ahaz followed The Pattern of Destruction, by his willful disobedience to God. “He did not do what was right in the sight of the Lord his God, as his father David had done.” (v.2).
The Prophet Isaiah delivered God’s Promise of deliverance from the armies of Israel and Syria to Ahaz, but he willfully disobeyed God and chose to Surrender to Assyria, the enemy of Israel. (Isa.7:3-9)
Ahaz began and ended his reign following The Pattern of Destruction as the worst king of Judah. Sadly, his willful disobedience led multitudes of people into sin, suffering, and misery as well.
Our Life Influences Others To Live Like We Live!
In spite of the counsel of God’s Prophets Isaiah and Micah, Ahaz willfully disobeyed God and followed The Pattern of Destruction to the end.
What can the righteous do when their king is wicked and willfully disobedient to God; and many of the people we walk among are Following This Pattern of Destruction?
The Prophet Micah answers this question as he describes the days of Ahaz, and speaks to the righteous remnant living among the wicked:
“Therefore I will look to the LORD;
I will wait for the God of my salvation;
My God will hear me.” (Micah 7:7).
Listen up Warrior! “Look To The Lord,” in the midst of ungodliness around us; and let His Light of Hope Shine in you and I.
We wait for the God of our Salvation with great expectancy every day, for His return and our extraction from this world!
Our Commander and King “hears you and I!”
“We Do Justice,
We Love Mercy,
And We walk humbly with Our God;” (Micah 6:8).
We Walk in The Pattern of Eternal Life, Lighting the Pathway Out Of The Pattern of Destruction! Oooooh Rah!
Be The Light Warrior!
And Stay Salty With Love! Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
