The King is Alive
Uzziah was king in Israel. He ruled for fifty-two years and he was the only king many in Israel ever knew. As a result, they faced his death with great, great mourning. As the Prophet Isaiah was lamenting King Uzziah’s death, he wrote, “In the year of King Uzziah’s death, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted …” (Isaiah 6:1). God let him see the real King, Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords. Hey, when your world comes crashing down, Jesus is there for you. No matter what you may be facing today, put your eyes on King Jesus. He loves you and He wants to work miracles in your life today. Talk to Him about your problems; about your hurts; about your cares. Because He really does care for you … and He's ready, willing, and able to make a difference in your life starting now. Now that’s real hope.
