Sometimes, God leaves us... for a purpose

When I read on my morning devotion 2 Chr 32:21,

 

and even when the Babylonian ambassadors came

to inquire about the unusual event that had happened

in the land, God let Hezekiah go his own way

only in order to test his character.

 

I prayed right away, ‘Lord, when it is my turn to be left alone, let me not err.’

But then, I also realized right away that that is a very difficult goal – not to err.

So I changed my prayer: ‘Lord, let not that time come to me, that you will leave me alone.

Be always on my side, in my heart. Amen.’
