No human being is able to anticipate and fulfill all the needs of another person. No one can know all that someone else expects from them to do, say or feel. The only “one” that is omniscient (knows it all), omnipotent (has all the power) and omnipresent (is present everywhere at the same time) is God. Our family, friends, spouses, politicians, governments and even brothers & sisters in Christ, all let us down at some point. “God” is the only “one” that will never let us down nor forsake us! Sometimes it may seem that He did, when His answers to our prayers and expectations are different than ours, but in considering the bigger picture, He always does what is best for us in the long term. Always! You may read more on the subject at click here:”God will never forsake His children”
2 Kings 18:3-7 “And he (King Hezekiah) did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done... 5 He trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so that after him was none like him among all the kings of Judah, nor who were before him.”
Hezekiah's father, King Ahaz, in order to please one of the kings of Assyria, forsook the Lord and completely violated and desecrated the holy temple of God, including making an offering for himself, abandoning the holy altar for one he had made, and completely disregarding God's priestly system. He even removed the gold and gave it to the Assyrian king. He was so evil, that he brought one of his sons as a living sacrifice to a foreign god (2 Kings 16). Thankfully, Hezekiah did not follow in the footsteps of his father.
2 Chronicles 32:8 “With him is an arm of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God, to help us and to fight our battles.” And the people were strengthened by the words of Hezekiah king of Judah.”
The faithfulness of King Hezekiah strengthened the people's hearts and caused them to not fall for the lies of the servants of Sennacherib, the Assyrian king. They were trying hard to terrify the people of Jerusalem in order to conquer them. It was a desperate situation, but Hezekiah chose to trust God and called for the prophet Isaiah to come and pray for the right solution. The king's right choice saved the whole nation.
2 Chronicles 32: 20 -22 “Now because of this King Hezekiah and the prophet Isaiah, the son of Amoz, prayed and cried out to heaven. Then the Lord sent an angel who cut down every mighty man of valor, leader, and captain in the camp of the king of Assyria. So he returned shamefaced to his own land. And when he had gone into the temple of his god, some of his own offspring struck him down with the sword there. Thus the Lord saved Hezekiah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem from the hand of Sennacherib the king of Assyria, and from the hand of all others, and guided them on every side.”
God has all the power and He can save us from all the evil ones that seem to be stronger than us. The best solutions, for the most desperate situations come only from God. The Hebrew soldiers, even if they would have the most powerful weapons of the time and the best training, could not do a better or faster job than an angel of the Lord did. There were no victims of the people who's king chose to trust the Lord God. But the camp that mocked God (2 Chronicles 32:17), lost every “mighty man of valor, leader, and captain” as they were killed by God's angel. Even their King Sennacherib, ended up killed by his own sons. He chose to trust in his hand-made golden god, who was not able to to anything for him. And because he mocked the Lord God, he lost the battle, his best leaders, soldiers and even his own life.
