August 5 "Am I Living to Please Myself?" Isaiah 37:16
Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the messengers. Read it. Went up to the LORD and spread it out before the LORD. Isaiah 37:16. Hezekiah prayed to the LORD: You are God, You Alone. INcline Your ear, and hear; open Your eyes and see; listen to all the words of Sennacherib who is reproaching you. So, what is Hezekiah doing? Appealing from good places in his heart. God answers Hezekiah through Isaiah: No, you have looked with haughty eyes upon Your LORD up to this time. This prayer has no power. Even though we pray, there are no magical formulas. All I can do is deal with God with what I know this hour. I am free not to please myself any longer. Free to live to please my God.
PRAYER FROM PSALMS:
Not to us, but to Yourself Give Glory, O God!
Not to us.
