• Hope in the Southern Kingdom Devotional

    2 Kings 18:1-12

    Hezekiah’s reformation shows us that the Lord will receive and bless His people even after a great fall when they repent and dedicate themselves anew to His covenant. We do not know what shape this blessing will take in every case, but we do know that the Lord will not refuse to forgive those who repent, and He will even add blessings besides. Let us never be afraid to return to the Lord. He is eager to forgive and to bless all who come to Him. View Resource

  • Images vs. Idols Devotional

    2 Kings 18:4–5

    Biblical ethics ultimately address the heart. Images in themselves are indifferent; it is what we do with them that matters. The worship of physical images is a problem in many places, but we tend to be more “sophisticated.” We often create images of God in our hearts and minds based on what we think He should be like. Then, we worship that deity, and not the God of Scripture. But if we do not worship the Lord as He reveals Himself in His Word, we are committing idolatry. View Resource

  • Assyria Invades Judah Devotional

    2 Kings 18:13–37

    The Lord promised in Isaiah 8:9–10 that Assyria would not ultimately succeed when Sennacherib invaded Judah. Similarly, He promises us that the enemies of His people will not finally win but that we will reign with the Lord over all (2 Tim. 2:11–13). Whatever opposition we face today for the Lord’s sake, we can know that the enemies of the cross will ultimately lose, just as Assyria’s invasion of Judah was ultimately turned away. View Resource
