Hezekiah is the first king to tear down the temples and shrines of the other gods. He is the first one in a long time to restore a true and proper worship of God. It would seem to me that this act would be rewarded by God in a big way, but Hezekiah finds himself in a battle for his life and the lives of his people. Does this seem fair to you? Do you believe that when people get their lives right with God that things should be easier? I wonder how many people are setting themselves up for disappointment?
