S S & S 543 – Precious promise God has given.

Main text : 2 Kings 19 : 27 – 37)

Preamble :

The the threats  of  the king of Assyria :

18:35 Who are they among all the gods of the countries, that have delivered their country out of mine hand, that the LORD should deliver Jerusalem out of mine hand?

18:36 But the people held their peace, and answered him not a word: for the king’s commandment was, saying, Answer him not. (2 Kings 18 ; 35 – 36).

The threats of life’s circumstances.

We are often confronted by sickness, poverty, siege and various things and we cry like the children of Judah  who tore their garments as a result.

And Hezekiah said:

19:1 And it came to pass, when king Hezekiah heard it, that he rent his clothes, and covered himself with sackcloth, and went into the house of the LORD.

19:3 And they said unto him, Thus saith Hezekiah, This day is a day of trouble, and of rebuke, and blasphemy; for the children are come to the birth, and there is not strength to bring forth. 2 Kings (2 Kings 19 : 1, 3).

We are often in a situation as this. King. Hezekiah was not prepared for such threat.

Let us rely on the Lord in such situations.

19:6 And Isaiah said unto them, Thus shall ye say to your master, Thus saith the LORD, Be not afraid of the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the king of Assyria have blasphemed me.

19:7 Behold, I will send a blast upon him, and he shall hear a rumour, and shall return to his own land; and I will cause him to fall by the sword in his own land. (2 Kings 19 : 6 – 7).

This world is a battle ground. The Bible makes us know that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against spiritual wickedness in the heavenly places ( Ephesians 6 :12).

Such spiritual wickedness often transform and manifest itself in some  realities of Hunan life.

Therefore we need help from above. We need the armour of God which is prayer and righteousness .

We must seek help from above and even in things of this physical life,  Satan will always introduce elements of frustration. We need power from above. Hezekiah King of Judah overcame Sennacherib  King of Assyria through  God’s intervention.

 Sennacherib  lost his 185,000 soldiers in their sleep.

We have  to pray that the Father will send to us His agents of victory. He has done it for those who went before us, we are not excepted.

(i) At a time God sent Gideon

(ii) At one time God sent Deborah

(iii) At one time God sent David : to destroy Goliath of Gath who had troubled Israel.

(iv) At a time He sent Moses to take Israel back to the Promised Land.

(v) And even at one time God sent Archangel Michael against the Prince of Persia, who stood against the prayers of Daniel.

These exploits were achieved by bringing down strongholds and every power that exalted itself above God. (2 Corinthians 10 : 5).

We have to pray today  for our own David , our own Deborah, our own Gideon,  our own Moses or the Archangel of God to the rescue.

When we are up or when we are down, we need our Gideon  et-al depending on our case.

When we  receive our own helper,  we  will make great differences. There is no how we  will fight alone. We need companions with divine passion in the christian race. We need prayer warriors to bring down help from above.

By God’s grace we shall find them. God is our strength.

Jesus promised

I will send you a helper.

Jesus had been with the disciples and would   leave them on the completion of His assignment. He knew  they will face a lot of challenges and He promised them the Holy Spirit :

14:16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; (John 14 : 16).

He will come in these forms:

(i) as a helper : to leverage , to simply our struggles.

(ii) comforter: to bring consolation  on issues that make tears run down your cheeks.

(iii) teacher : to bring to our knowledge the great lessons of the mysteries of God ; and

(iv) as an advocate: to defend our cause.

The battle is not always for the swift. We need enabling grace and when it is received we will be enabled to come to fulfilment.


May we pray :

You are Jehovah El-Shaddai, the Almighty God and our God and there is nothing that exists which is mightier than You.

We are now at the bank of the  Red Sea, send us the dredging machine that we might walk onto safety.

You have done this before, grant us enabling grace to share in this privilege from above. Thank  You Lord,  in Jesus name Amen.
