Sometimes when we follow the Lord, we suffer for it, and at other times, we prosper. In the case of Hezekiah, the Lord made the king of Judah prosper:

Hezekiah had very great riches and honor. And he made himself treasuries for silver, for gold, for precious stones, for spices, for shields, and for all kinds of desirable items; storehouses for the harvest of grain, wine, and oil; and stalls for all kinds of livestock, and folds for flocks. Moreover he provided cities for himself, and possessions of flocks and herds in abundance; for God had given him very much property. This same Hezekiah also stopped the water outlet of Upper Gihon, and brought the water by tunnel to the west side of the City of David. Hezekiah prospered in all his works (2 Chronicles 32.27–30).

Make God the center, the beginning, and the end of your life, and make the most of what He gives. It might be suffering, or it might be prosperity. However, if you truly love the Lord, it will not matter to you, but you will follow Him no matter what.

Questions:

  • Is the Lord your everything?
  • How do you make Him the center of everything?
