2 Kings 18.5-6 observes, Hezekiah put his whole trust in the God of Israel. There was no king quite like him, either before or after. He held fast to God—never loosened his grip—and obeyed to the letter everything God had commanded Moses. And God, for His part, held fast to him through all his adventures. MSG
We should seek to be like Hezekiah: Holding fast to God, never loosening our grip on God, obedient to the letter of everything Jesus commands us. Then we will experience God holding us fast through all our adventures. What adventures are we taking for God? What are we doing that needs faith, trust, and earnest prayer?
An adventure feels like the place where death is an option, where control is abandoned, and uncertainty abounds. For many, adventures are a ‘nasty business,’ they make you late for supper! For the man of God, the modern Hezekiah, the Great Commission is the great adventure.
The saving of men, the turning of men from darkness to light, the work of freeing men from prison placed there by the world, the flesh, and the devil is the place we must exercise faith, trust, and earnest prayer. Simply inviting a lost colleague to a CBMC luncheon creates adventure surging adrenalin!
Certainly, the Kingdom of God would be bigger, more exciting, and more vibrant, were more men of God willing to take more adventures with God for building His Kingdom upon earth as it is in heaven. I hope you will join me in becoming such a man.
