2 Kings 20:5b-6a
“…I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: …And I will add unto thy days 15 years….”
Malachi 3:6 tells us a wonderful promise from God, “For I am the Lord, I change not.” God is. We can hold fast to everything He has ever promised. Hebrews 6:18 tells us it is impossible for God to lie. God fulfills His every promise through His son, Jesus.
Upon stating this truth that God does not change, I would build your confidence and faith by telling you that God can and does change His mind. Never confuse these two statements. James 5:16b: “The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.” You are not stuck in your present situation. Destiny has not dealt you an evil hand. Stop moping and start praying!
Hezekiah turn to God and God answered! Your prayers matter; my prayers matter; our prayers make a difference to God.
“Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is past into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feelings of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly into the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Pray with boldness and faith today. Seek the face of God. He will hear. He will answer. God is good. God is love. His character never changes, yet His mercies are new every morning.
