God Has the Last Say

“Go back to Hezekiah, the leader of my people. Tell him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of your ancestor David, says: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you, and three days from now you will get out of bed and go to the Temple of the Lord. I will add fifteen years to your life, and I will rescue you and this city from the king of Assyria. I will defend this city for my own honor and for the sake of my servant David.’”

(2 Kings 20:5-6 NLT)

King Hezekiah became ill and was about to die. However, even after being told by the prophet Isaiah that he wasn’t going to recover, Hezekiah still prayed and asked God to heal him, and God heard and answered his prayer. I admire Hezekiah’s determination. He didn’t settle for the news he had been given concerning his illness, not even from a prophet. In the same way, I admire the people who refuse to settle for a doctor’s word about their illness and instead, turn to God in prayer and like Hezekiah, many have lived longer than expected. Today, no matter what your circumstance is refuse to settle for what anyone else says and believe that God can do more than you dare to ask or imagine, if you will only pray and believe Him.

God’s word overrules what anyone else says.
