II Kings 19:19 Now therefore, O LORD our God, I beseech thee, save thou us out of his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that thou art the LORD God, even thou only.
God was to answer the prayer to prove that He was and is the only God.
There are several things that are very interesting in this chapter. The king gets word from the man of God that all is going to be ok but he still desires to take the message to God on his own. He goes and spreads the letter before the Lord.
There is no substitute for a personal relationship with God. We can not live off of another man’s relationship with God.
Also notice that the reason he asks God to answer prayer is that He desires that God show Himself to be the only true God. The enemy has thrown in the face of Israel that no other God has been able to stand before them and their god. Hezekiah says God show yourself to them so that they will know that you are God.
How much do we desire the world to know that God is the only God? How much do we desire to spread His name? World Evangelism is the ministry of proving to the world that there is only one God and He deserves our lives and testimonies.
What are you doing even now to spread the cause of our God and seek His kingdom?
