2 Kings 18:9-19:37, Psalms 46, 80, & 135

Assyria comes against Jerusalem.

We read this same story in Isaiah 36. Hezekiah seeks God’s help to deal with the Assyrians. Eventually the Assyrians return home after God’s intervention. God prophesies that the Assyrian king will be assassinated. He is. God announces that Assyria has been able to succeed militarily because God planned it. God announces that Jerusalem will be spared without having to engage in battle. It is. God is at work through this entire episode. Not one thing has escaped God’s attention. This is our God. He is still at work. Nothing escapes his attention. We can trust him.
