Introduction to The Hollow

Hezekiah

2 Kings 18:1-9

The name Hezekiah means “the Lord strengthens,” and during his reign of 29 years (715-687 BC), King Hezekiah needed God’s strength to accomplish all that he did. He was one of the few kings who actually removed the high places and put an end to idol worship. He encouraged the people from both Judah and Israel to come to the temple in Jerusalem and worship the Lord.

Hezekiah began his reign on a mission to serve God. Whenever we begin any task, we need to make sure glorifying God is our number one objective no matter our vocation or station in life. Are there any areas in your life where you have let the people around you lower your spiritual standards because you were afraid of “rocking the boat”?
