April 27 "Spread It Out Before The Lord" 2 Kings 18-19

 The news was dismal.  The King of Assyria was lethal.  Hezekiah received the letter from the messengers and read it. Then he went up to the temple of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord.  And Hezekiah prayed to the Lord: “Lord, the God of Israel, enthroned between the cherubim, you alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Give ear, Lord, and hear; open your eyes, Lord, and see; listen to the words Sennacherib has sent to ridicule the living God. 2 Kings 19:17.

This so moves me.  Take the letters of your life.  Take your Instagram posts.  Take all the words you hear that don't move you.  Take the bitter biting silence from your family and friends.  And spread that letter of life.  Spread it out on your bed.  And don't wail from your bed.  Just cry from your heart.  It's the Living Lord listening.
