The Shadow is Annihilated

September 20th, 2023

2 Chronicles 32:16-23

Sennacherib executed his well-planned campaign of terror against the people of God. The role of fear and anxiety were key to their annihilation. Sennacherib was a master of propaganda, but there was one catastrophic miscalculation in his plan. He equated the power of God with the powerlessness of idols.

Hezekiah and Isaiah knew of God’s ability to overcome the terror and threats surrounding them. Hezekiah’s defense plan was in place, but the work of the people would not save them. It would not be the gods who were crafted by the hands of humanity who would win.

Hezekiah and Isaiah go to prayer. It is through God’s plan of defense the battle is won and the enemy annihilated. God grants His followers access to the arsenal of heaven. It is not through superior human abilities that battles are won, but through the power and presence of God.

Hezekiah’s plan was good, but it was not the source of the victory. Victory was achieved through seeking God in prayer. This is still the answer today.

    Yes indeed sister. The modern day beast system is defeated through the One who overcame all by His death, burial and resurrection! He is same yesterday, today and forever! His Name is Jesus!
