2 Chronicles 26

1 Then all the people of Judah took Uzziah, who was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amaziah.

2 He built Eloth, and restored it to Judah, after that the king slept with his fathers.

3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.

4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.

5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

6 And he went forth and warred against the Philistines, and brake down the wall of Gath, and the wall of Jabneh, and the wall of Ashdod, and built cities about Ashdod, and among the Philistines.

7 And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims.

8 And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt; for he strengthened himself exceedingly.

9 Moreover Uzziah built towers in Jerusalem at the corner gate, and at the valley gate, and at the turning of the wall, and fortified them.

10 Also he built towers in the desert, and digged many wells: for he had much cattle, both in the low country, and in the plains: husbandmen also, and vine dressers in the mountains, and in Carmel: for he loved husbandry.

11 Moreover Uzziah had an host of fighting men, that went out to war by bands, according to the number of their account by the hand of Jeiel the scribe and Maaseiah the ruler, under the hand of Hananiah, one of the king’s captains.

12 The whole number of the chief of the fathers of the mighty men of valour were two thousand and six hundred.

13 And under their hand was an army, three hundred thousand and seven thousand and five hundred, that made war with mighty power, to help the king against the enemy.

14 And Uzziah prepared for them throughout all the host shields, and spears, and helmets, and habergeons, and bows, and slings to cast stones.

15 And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.

16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

17 And Azariah the priest went in after him, and with him fourscore priests of the Lord, that were valiant men:

18 And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the Lord, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the Lord God.

19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar.

20 And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the Lord had smitten him.

21 And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord: and Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.

22 Now the rest of the acts of Uzziah, first and last, did Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, write.

23 So Uzziah slept with his fathers, and they buried him with his fathers in the field of the burial which belonged to the kings; for they said, He is a leper: and Jotham his son reigned in his stead.

  1. Verse 16 AMP “But when Uzziah became strong, he became so proud [of himself and his accomplishments] that he acted corruptly, and he was unfaithful and sinned against the Lord his God, for he went [b]into the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense.” Same verse CEV “Uzziah became proud of his power, and this led to his downfall.
    One day, Uzziah disobeyed the Lord his God by going into the temple and burning incense as an offering to him.[c]” This portion of the chapter is captioned AMP “Pride Is Uzziah’s Undoing” and CEV “Uzziah Becomes Too Proud”. Proverbs 16:18 CEV says “Too much pride will destroy you.” Same verse MSG “First pride, then the crash—the bigger the ego, the harder the fall.”

  2. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.
    But when he was strong his heart was lifted up to his destruction. Oh my… I know many a people who have let their brain , brawn, or their acheivements get the best of them. Jesus, thank you for keeping me humble.

  3. 3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
    4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
    5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

    The teens are the generation of today.

    Although many say it’s the young adults that make the generation. It’s really the teens that do it. The teens are the ones because they influence the way we spend money and advertisement. To get to this generation we must become influential with the teenagers. Let’s impact out youth. They need us the most.

  4. “But then the strength and success went to his head. Arrogant and proud, he fell. One day, contemptuous of God, he walked into The Temple of God like he owned it”……”and then, even as they quarreled, a skin disease appeared on his forehead…” The Message

    It bothers me to see people treat God’s House, especially the Sanctuary, lightly, as if it is just another building. I know some do it out of ignorance, and some are just not thinking, but some just don’t care, and that scares me. We see here how much God cares, and this time His reaction was immediate, along with the time He took a whip and ran out the money-changers. God takes His house seriously; we should as well.

  5. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

  6. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.
    Uzziah was a blessed man because everything he did was blessed. But it was blessed because one reason. .. he sought Gods direction. We must remember to keep God at the center of important decisions because he is the only one who can prosper us.

  7. 3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.

    4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.

    If you continue to read Uzzuiah reigned for fifty two years but ended up dying a lepor. Because of his disobedience to God. How sad to have had a life of serving and to come to the end and make one move of disobedience. His act some would say was justifiable, he wanted to burn the incense in the temple. But God had an order and order that had to be kept. Throughout the scriptures God has always set an order in place. Just submit to the word, submit to the authority that has been set and submit to the purpose and will of God . I pray that one act of disobedience would not destroy my life or anyone else’s. I am so glad for Calvary which has made a way for us today. But I cannot take His grace andHis mercy for granted lest at sometime an act of disobedience would destroy everything I have been living for, His Kingdom not mine.

  8. Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem fifty-two years. His mother was Jecoliah from Jerusalem. Uzziah sought God during the days of Zechariah, who taught him to fear God. And as long as the king sought guidance from the Lord , God gave him success.
    2 Chronicles 26:3‭, ‬5 NLT

    Uzziah seek guidance from. As long as he seek the lord gave him guidance so the more he seek the more he find. The more powerful he got the generation of teens rising up that strong and powerful that seeking and loving the lord

  9. 6 King Jotham became powerful because he was careful to live in obedience to the Lord his God. (NLT)

    To please the Lord, live in obedience!

    • Just realized my mistake: yesterday I posted on chapter 27. Here’s 26 now…

      16 But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the Lord his God by entering the sanctuary of the Lord’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar.

      Pride comes befor destruction. Remember any power and authority we have is given by God. If we become prideful, we become selfish know-it-alls, like Uzziah did by entering the sanctuary and burning the incense. Stay obedient to the Lord and His word.

  10. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper…..8 And the Ammonites gave gifts to Uzziah: and his name spread abroad even to the entering in of Egypt…..16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction:

    Generally when we start out doing something our heart is humble and eager to learn. We seek God for guidance for everything but its when we look at those accomplishments under “our” hands and forget who was guiding those hands all along. Pride comes in many forms and generally is the destruction and fall for every person. There are over 72 verses about being humble and God instructing us to live as such. It is way too easy to see only ourselves in the spotlight and forget who was helping us when we had nothing.

    Trust in the Lord with ALL thine Heart and lean not on your own understanding….the verse we quote constantly and yet it is one of the hardest to live by at times. To truly trust God even when it seems we have it all seems to be more difficult then when we have nothing. Personally living in the Spirit while challenging at times it is simple- Seek God and stay humble.

  11. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    It starts in the heart!

    16 But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the Lord his God by entering the sanctuary of the Lord’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar. NLT

  12. 15 And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.

    16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

  13. 2 Chronicles 26:16 But after Uzziel became powerful his pride let him to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God and enter the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. Azariah the priest wit other courageous priest of the Lord followed him in. They confronted King Uzziah and said it is not right for you Uzziah to burn incense to the Lord. That is for the priests the descendants of Aaron who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary for you have been unfaithful and you will not be honored by the Lord God. Uzziah who had a censer in his hand ready to burn incenser became angry. While he was raging at the priests in their presence before the incense altar in the Lord’s temple leprosy broke out on his forehead. When Azariah the chief priests and all the other priests look at him they saw that he had leprosy on his forehead so they hurried him out. Indeed he himself was eager to leave because the Lord has Afflicted him.

  14. THE PAINFUL ANGUISH OF BEING ANGRY AT THE PREACHER

    18 And they withstood Uzziah the king, and said unto him, It appertaineth not unto thee, Uzziah, to burn incense unto the Lord, but to the priests the sons of Aaron, that are consecrated to burn incense: go out of the sanctuary; for thou hast trespassed; neither shall it be for thine honour from the Lord God.
    19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar.
    20 And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the Lord had smitten him.
    21 And Uzziah the king was a leper unto the day of his death, and dwelt in a several house, being a leper; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord: and Jotham his son was over the king’s house, judging the people of the land.

    Uzziah was determined to do ministry his way. He fellas if he was qualified to what the priest was ordained to do. GOD knew the pride of his heart and that was manifest in his actions. GOD knows our motives and our actions.

    Uzziah just went and wasn’t sent, he was king bit desired to be priest. We align ourselves with self destruction when we violate, go beyond or outside of our delegated authority.

    GOD did not wink at the attitude of Uzziah, nor the disrespect that he showed toward the LORD, the ALTAR and the PREACHER. Uzziah was not appointed or qualified to burn incense at the altar of the LORD, but he was a legend in his own mind and felt like he deserved the right to do so.

    ONE proud decision cost Uzziah his position (King), his health (leperousy) and his future (cut off).

    MSG
    16 But when King Uzziah became strong, he grew arrogant, and that led to his downfall. He defied the Lord his God by going into the Temple to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 Azariah the priest, accompanied by eighty strong and courageous priests, followed the king 18 to resist him. They said, “Uzziah! You have no right to burn incense to the Lord. Only the priests who are descended from Aaron have been consecrated to do this. Leave this holy place. You have offended the Lord God, and you no longer have his blessing.”

    19 Uzziah was standing there in the Temple beside the incense altar and was holding an incense burner. He became angry with the priests, and immediately a dreaded skin disease broke out on his forehead. 20 Azariah and the other priests stared at the king’s forehead in horror and then forced him to leave the Temple. He hurried to get out, because the Lord had punished him.

    21 For the rest of his life King Uzziah was ritually unclean because of his disease. Unable to enter the Temple again, he lived in his own house, relieved of all duties, while his son Jotham governed the country.

    The old saying, it is better to ask forgiveness than permission, obviously failed for Uzziah, we must understand our place, position and role in the Kingdom lest we prematurely abort our future through pride.

  15. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    When Inread this I remember what Bro. David Smith said yesterday, some won’t get their miracle because they don’t give glory to God… In the same way king Uzziah forgot who made him strong and was full of himself Stepping into roles that he was not qualify for… I wouldn’t dare preach for I am no preacher, I am only an interpreter. I wouldn’t take credit for what my Pastor says for I only translate it…. We most give ALL HONOR AND GLORY TO GOD THE GIVER OF ALL!!! Lord help our hearts remain humble so we will ALWAYS know that ONLY YOU are above it ALL!! In Jesus Name Amen

  16. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    Proverbs 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

    The king did what was right in the sight of the Lord for many years, but then something happened………. he became lifted up in his own self (pride) and the Word says pride goeth before destruction, and just as we see destruction came to him. He died a leper.

    We must careful to not allow pride or for that matter bitterness take root in our hearts. We must take our cares to the altar everyday and leave them there. We cannot afford to allow them to eat away at our soul. If we don’t, we will be eat up with either pride or bitterness. They both are cancerous to the spirit and will cause death.

  17. 3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem

    16 years old and he began to reign. I always pray for the youth to have a burden and a passion for God. They might be young but there is no limit on how God can use them to witness, testify, preach, reach souls, motivate, inspire, etc. Youth are gifted and talented and energetic…..why not give it all to His kingdom. I didn’t grow up in the church but I would’ve enjoyed so much having the youth experience at church. Its something that none can take it away. I pray the youth learn from the elders and follow the guidance that’ll lead them more to Jesus.

  18. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

    We have read about more than 1 king fall at the end of his reign because of pride in his own strength, forgetting it was the Lord God who blessed them and gave them their riches, strength and favor. We can’t forget where our help comes from and turn our backs on God. We must continue to go before his throne daily in prayer and repentance, casting all our cares upon him.

  19. “Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar. And Azariah the chief priest, and all the priests, looked upon him, and, behold, he was leprous in his forehead, and they thrust him out from thence; yea, himself hasted also to go out, because the Lord had smitten him.”
    ‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭26:19-20‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  20. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    This is exactly what happens when we are prideful, rebellious, selfish and our attitude isn’t anywhere near JESUS’ attitude!!! The “attributes” that are manifest aren’t GODLY if they DONT line up with the ORDER

  21. 16But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the Lord his God by entering the sanctuary of the Lord’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar.

    Just like his father, he became so powerful, he allowed his pride to interfere spiritually. At the end he suffered the same fate as his father. Or maybe even more so, as he suffered with leprosy until his death.

  22. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    An entire life of success and dedication to the Lord was wasted becuase he allowed pride to come into his heart. We could say that he was trying to worship God, but the Lord has established an order. Know your place in the kingdom. God may use you and be on your side but there is still an order to follow. We cannot take the things of God lightly becuase the matter to him. Guard your heart and keep humble.

  23. 16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    Stay in your position. Follow the structure and order God has set upon our lives.

  24. 2 Chronicles 26:16, “But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the LORD his God, and went into the temple of the LORD to burn incense upon the altar of incense.”

    “But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction.”
    PRIDE
    Proverbs 16:18, “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.”

  25. But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    When you full of pride and not able to follow Gods ways you will always fail.

  26. 3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.

    4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.

  27. 2 Chronicles 26:21 (NLT)
    21 So King Uzziah had leprosy until the day he died. He lived in isolation in a separate house, for he was excluded from the Temple of the Lord. His son Jotham was put in charge of the royal palace, and he governed the people of the land.

    It’s not how you start the race but how you finish that matters. The race is not to the swift.

    Hebrews 12:1 (KJV Strong’s)

    1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,

    We run with patience. Not in a hurry but rather listening to the Lord and allowing him to bring things to pass in his time.

    Uzziah was successful until he became lifted with pride. He lost focus on God and eventually his own life.

  28. “But after Uzziah became powerful, his pride led to his downfall. He was unfaithful to the Lord his God, and entered the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. Azariah the priest with eighty other courageous priests of the Lord followed him in. They confronted King Uzziah and said, “It is not right for you, Uzziah, to burn incense to the Lord. That is for the priests, the descendants of Aaron, who have been consecrated to burn incense. Leave the sanctuary, for you have been unfaithful; and you will not be honored by the Lord God.” Uzziah, who had a censer in his hand ready to burn incense, became angry. While he was raging at the priests in their presence before the incense altar in the Lord’s temple, leprosy broke out on his forehead. When Azariah the chief priest and all the other priests looked at him, they saw that he had leprosy on his forehead, so they hurried him out. Indeed, he himself was eager to leave, because the Lord had afflicted him.”
    ‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭26:16-20‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Even in our arrogance Jesus will send us a warning. It is when we ignore these warnings that God will correct us. God didn’t wait to see if Uzziah was going to get better or just blow a little smoke, when Uzziah reacted Jesus struck him. His ride led him to be kicked out for the rest of his life.

    “Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18‬ ‭NIV‬‬

  29. “But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.” The word of God (Jesus) identifies arrogance. Power and position has cost many to fall, which lucifer (satan) himself discovered. Dear God, open our (my) eyes lest we (I) become deceived into thinking more highly of self. God Bless America, Israel, Jerusalem, and you all in Jesus name, Amen!

  30. “And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.” The main point is that we all must develop a personal relationship, as we all must seek the Lord. God help us to see the importance of a personal relationship, in Jesus name.

  31. iLove to Grow in the Word
    19 Then Uzziah was wroth, and had a censer in his hand to burn incense: and while he was wroth with the priests, the leprosy even rose up in his forehead before the priests in the house of the Lord, from beside the incense altar.

    Folks are unwise. Pride overwhelmed the king to the point that he stepped into a role beyond what he was called to. To usurp authority is never the way to go.

  32. As long as Uzziah sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. We can prosper as long as we put God first. With God in the forefront, our outcome is victory.

  33. From King to discarded.

    As long as Ussiah stayed in check with God he ruled well but it all fell apart on him when he stepped out of his annointing. He was anointed to be king, not priest. We have to know that we are in the will of God before we act.

  34. 15 And he made in Jerusalem engines, invented by cunning men, to be on the towers and upon the bulwarks, to shoot arrows and great stones withal. And his name spread far abroad; for he was marvellously helped, till he was strong.

    16 But when he was strong, his heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God, and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense upon the altar of incense.

    Too much of something can be bad for you. In this case, on the road to victory, Uzziah forgot we’re the victory came from. That it wasn’t his strength that gave him the victory, but the favor of God upon him. When we get caught up, thinking that it’s us and put God on the back burner, we are taking Glory from the one that it belongs to, and condemning ourselves.

    Always give God all glory, in all things!

  35. “But when he had become powerful, he also became proud, which led to his downfall. He sinned against the LORD his God by entering the sanctuary of the LORD’s Temple and personally burning incense on the incense altar.”
    ‭‭2 Chronicles‬ ‭26:16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    Pride causes blindness. It cause us not to be able to see our own mistakes. My prayer is that the people of POFW would walk in a spirit of humbleness and would always reflect the glory of God.

    “Pride goes before destruction, and haughtiness before a fall. Better to live humbly with the poor than to share plunder with the proud.”
    ‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:18-19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

  36. v20 And Azariah the chief priest and all the priests looked at him, and there, on his forehead, he was leprous; so they thrust him out of that place. Indeed he also hurried to get out, because the LORD had struck him.

    GOD expects HIS laws to be kept, because HE created us with the power to reason and to make judgments.
    GOD holds us personally responsible for the choices we make .

  37. Pride led to Uzziah’s fall. He was puffed up by his position. Ephesians 5:21 says we should submit to one another. The context is crucial to understanding this. V 18 gives the commanding verb “be filled” with the Spirit. Because we are filled with the Spirit, the participles that follow should be evident. One of which, submission to each other. It doesn’t matter our position, wealth, status, etc., bc we are Christ’s, we are to submit to each other. In doing so, we can avoid the folly of Uzziah.

  38. Why should we continue to improve ourselves?

    Uzziah… “He was a loyal seeker of God. He was well trained by his pastor and teacher Zechariah to live in reverent obedience before God, and for as long as Zechariah lived, Uzziah lived a godly life. And God prospered him.”

    I believe a benefit of continuing education is that it can improve our current skill set and help gain new skills in preparation for the future. Of course, the more we learn about God the deeper the relationship we build with Him, the close we get. I am an impatient type of person and like things done in my own way and in my own time. Do we want God to answer our prayers right now? Maybe we are not waiting for God, but still things are not happening the way we hoped or expected them to.

    Sometimes it’s hard to understand why God doesn’t allow things to happen straightaway. An important lesson that I am continuing to learn each day is that God works things out in his own perfect timing. Trusting in God, I believe is the key to success and happiness in life and a deeper relationship with Him.

    Psalm 37:4 Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart. God isn’t going to start giving you the best cars, the nicest house and lots of material things, because God isn’t concerned with those things. He wants us to ‘delight’ in Him, and to seek Him and to love Him and spend time with Him in prayer. Wait patiently on the Lord. Trust in God and He will work things out in our lives. God will use us the way we are, if we make ourselves available to Him.

  39. 8 But if thou wilt go, do it; be strong for the battle: God shall make thee fall before the enemy: for God hath power to help, and to cast down.

  40. 5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper.

    It’s important to follow God and covered under the man of God whom casts vision. For without knowledge of God the people perish. Therefore he is prosperous as long has he stays under that covering and the same is for us.
