In his time of trouble King Ahaz became even more unfaithful to the LORD. He offered sacrifices to the gods of Damascus, who had defeated him; for he thought, “Since the gods of the kings of Aram have helped them, I will sacrifice to them so they will help me.” But they were his downfall and the downfall of all Israel.
(2 Chronicles 28:22-23 NIV)
Sadly, even in his time of trouble, King Ahaz of Judah tried to seek help from anyone other than God. In fact, the Bible records that “In his time of trouble King Ahaz became even more unfaithful to the LORD,” and sought the help of foreign gods, which led to his downfall, as well as, all of Israel’s. I’m sure that if Ahaz had called on God, God would have stood ready to help him, just as He helped the previous kings before him. In fact, God invites us to call on Him in our day of trouble, promising to deliver us, so that we’ll honour Him (Psalm 50:15). In your time of trouble seek God, knowing that He’ll help you. Don’t allow the difficulties to pull you away from the true source of help.
