WHEN GOD WITHDRAWS FROM YOU FOR A MOMENT….

Mike Bamiloye

2 Chronicles 32:31 NKJV
[31] However, regarding the ambassadors of the princes of Babylon, whom they sent to him to inquire about the wonder that was done in the land, God withdrew from him, in order to test him, that He might know all that was in his heart.

When the Ambassadors informed Hezekiah that they were coming to visit and would love to be taken around for tourism of the Wonders of God in the Land, the Bible told us that God withdrew from Hezekiah to know what was in his heart.

This actually showed us that Hezekiah prayed to know God’s mind about the Visit, and about the Tourism’the Ambassadors had requested for. King Hezekiah prayed about it, to know if he should allow the Enemy nation of Not, or if he should take them on the Treasure Tourism or not.

He prayed and asked God for what to do, BUT GOD DID NOT RESPOND TO HIS REQUEST, GOD DID NOT ANSWER HIM “YES” or “NO”. God WITHDREW from him TO KNOW WHAT WAS IN HIS HEART, whether he would display PRIDE and WISDOM or SHOW OFF HIS TREASURES WITH PRIDE. And he failed that TEST woefully.

Because God did not give him directions and instructions of what to do, he displayed what was in his heart, PRIDE. And LACK OF WISDOM AND SOUND DISCRETION.
AND when the Ambassadors came, he took them on tour of all his Treasure Houses WITH PRIDE. And after they had gone, Prophet Isaiah came and proclaimed Gods verdict that the King has failed a major test, and that nation would still come back and attack and cart away all the Treasures he had shown them.

THE LESSON:
1. When you asked the Lord for Instructions and Directions, and the Lord refused to answer you, HE HAS MERELY WITHDRAW HIS RESPONSE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ALREADY CARRIED IN YOUR HEART.

2. When you are following the Lord, Do not have any Hidden Agenda, because it would expose you to failure.

3. When You Ask the Lord for Direction and Insteuctions, and He seem to be QUITE, what must you do?
CHECK YOUR HEART INTENTLY FIR THE MOTIVES OF WHAT YOU WANT TO DO.
Check for ANY HIDDEN PRIDE, VAIN GLORY, SELF ARROGANCE OR POMPOSITY.
If YOU DONT KNOW THE RIGHT THING TO DO, JUST…….STAND STILL and wait for the Salvation of the Lord.

QUESTION:
So, What Do You Think King Hezekiah Would Have Adobe?
