King Hezekiah’s work

Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God. (21) And every work that he undertook in the service of the house of God and in accordance with the law and the commandments, seeking his God, he did with all his heart, and prospered. – 2 Chronicles 31:2021

I want to be like King Hezekiah. As I read this passage this morning I thought about what verse 21 meant and how it applies to my own life and work. 

Hezekiah did his work with ALL HIS HEART. He sought God first, doing what was right in His eyes. Then he worked hard at it, toiling with all his heart, and he prospered.

I have to ask myself if I am working as hard as I possibly can. If I am doing everything I can to get the job done. If my whole heart is in it. There is no room for half-hearted work. I must be all in.

I read a quote the other day by Lowell Thomas, “Do a little more each day than you think you possibly can.” I think that Hezekiah would agree with that quote. We must work with all our hearts. What we are doing is too important for anything less. There is no time for procrastination.
