God’s Plan for Spiritual Renewal

August 31, 2013

“He sought his God…And so he prospered.” 2Ch 31:21 NIV

The conditions in our country today are similar to those in ancient Israel. In spite of all God’s blessings, the people had turned their back on Him. So when Hezekiah, a man of integrity, came to the throne, he set his heart on restoring God to His rightful position of leadership in the land. Notice four things he did: (1) He reopened the doors of God’s house and called the people to repent and return to the Lord. (2) He challenged the corruption and carnality which had become a way of life even among leaders and ministers of the Lord. His words were strong: “Sanctify the house of the Lord God of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy place” (2Ch 29:5 NKJV). Can you see a parallel to the day in which we live? (3) He reestablished the supremacy of God’s Word. “They went in to purify the temple of the Lord…following the word of the Lord” (v. 15 NIV). Pastor, a Sunday morning sermon alone won’t cut it; you need to get your people into God’s Word every day. (4) He called the people to worship God. It was an amazing scene. “The whole assembly bowed in worship, while the singers sang and the trumpeters played. All this continued until the sacrifice of the burnt offering was completed” (v. 28 NIV). Scholars estimate that for over three hours the entire nation stood in God’s presence and worshipped Him. Did God bless Hezekiah’s efforts? “In everything that he undertook…he sought his God and worked wholeheartedly. And so he prospered.” And that’s God’s plan for spiritual renewal!
