You Got This!
Hezekiah sought his God wholeheartedly. As a result he was very successful. 2 Chronicles 31:21b NLT
1. Quit acting powerless and make honoring God your top priority.
Hezekiah was twenty-five years old when he became the king of Judah, and he reigned in Jerusalem twenty-nine years...He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight, just as his ancestor David had done. 2 Chronicles 29:1-2 NLT
O Lord, I give my life to you. I trust in you, my God! Do not let my enemies rejoice in my defeat. Psalm 25:1 NLT
Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply. Fill the earth and govern it. Reign over the fish in the sea, the birds in the sky, and all the animals that scurry along the ground.” Genesis 1:28 NLT
2. Prioritize God’s House again.
In the very first month of the first year of his reign, Hezekiah reopened the doors of the Temple of the Lord and repaired them. 2 Chronicles 29:3 NLT
3. Decide today to be different: be faithful to God.
Our ancestors were unfaithful and did what was evil in the sight of the Lord our God...They abandoned the Lord and his dwelling place; they turned their backs on him. They also shut the doors to the Temple’s entry room, and they snuffed out the lamps. They stopped burning incense and presenting burnt offerings at the Sanctuary of the God of Israel. That is why the Lord’s anger has fallen upon [them]. 1 Chronicles 29:6-8 NLT
What an unfaithful Christian looks like:
Quit going to church
Quit reaching out to lost people
Let our fire go out
We become prayerless
Quit being generous
4. If you will throw yourself at God, HE can bring success quickly!
So the Temple of the Lord was restored to service. And Hezekiah and all the people rejoiced because of what God had done for the people, for everything had been accomplished so quickly. 2 Chronicles 29:35b-36 NLT
God can change you quickly.
..the Spirit of the Lord will come powerfully upon you...You will be changed into a different person. 1 Samuel 10:6 NLT
God can change your situation quickly.
The Israelites took their bread dough before yeast was added. They wrapped their kneading boards in their cloaks and carried them on their shoulders. And the people of Israel did as Moses had instructed; they asked the Egyptians for clothing and articles of silver and gold. The Lord caused the Egyptians to look favorably on the Israelites, and they gave the Israelites whatever they asked for. So they stripped the Egyptians of their wealth! Exodus 12:34-36 NLT
5. When you humble yourself before the Lord, come back to him, then...YOU GOT THIS!
The whole assembly bowed in worship, while the musicians played... 2 Chronicles 29:28 NIV
I am the vine, you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. John 15:5 NLT

Then Hezekiah said, “You have now dedicated yourselves to the Lord. Come and bring sacrifices and thank offerings to the temple of the Lord.” So the assembly brought sacrifices and thank offerings, and all whose hearts were willing brought burnt offerings. 2 Chronicles 29:31 NIV
