In those days Hezekiah was sick and near death. And Isaiah the prophet, the son of Amoz, went to him and said to him, “Thus says the Lord: ‘Set your house in order, for you shall die, and not live.’” Then he turned his face toward the wall, and prayed to the Lord, saying, “Remember now, O Lord, I pray, how I have walked before You in truth and with a loyal heart, and have done what was good in Your sight.” And Hezekiah wept bitterly. And it happened, before Isaiah had gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, “Return and tell Hezekiah the leader of My people, ‘Thus says the Lord, the God of David your father: “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears; surely I will heal you. On the third day you shall go up to the house of the Lord. And I will add to your days fifteen years. I will deliver you and this city from the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for My own sake, and for the sake of My servant David.”’”

II Kings 20:1-6 NKJV

King Hezekiah’s life was coming to an end as a result of an incurable disease. God had sent Prophet Isaiah to him to tell him to set things in order before he dies. Hezekiah didn’t accept death as the final verdict, rather he turned to God and began to recount his walk with God and God’s faithfulness and mercy and God heard him and added an extra fifteen years to his life, gave him victory over his adversary and peaceful reign.

God is always doing exceeding, abundantly and above all we ask or think. He is the more-than-enough God. He not only restored his health, he added to his years and caused him to enjoy victory over his enemies and give him a peaceful reign. Far above and beyond what he once had and what he could have wished for. Hallelujah!!! That is the God we belong to.
