Bible Text: Isaiah 38:1-8 |


God has plans and purposes for our lives, and God knows what’s best for us. It’s easy to believe that when everything is going smoothly, but when life is hard we may not be as quick to embrace that. King Hezekiah had a hard time embracing God’s will that he would die in a short time. God added 15 years to his life and Manasseh was born, Judah’s most evil King. Much suffering resulted from Manasseh’s reign. Perhaps it wasn’t good that Hezekiah lived longer. If God allows hardships into your life, don’t resent them. Learn and grow from them. Embrace the easy and the difficult in God’s plans.
