"Behold, I will bring again the shadow of the degrees, which is gone down in the sun dial of Ahaz, ten degrees backward. So the sun returned ten degrees, by which degrees it was gone down."
You know, I suppose that it is pretty obvious when you think about it... but the amazing power of God just slams me in the face every now and then. God wanted to show Ahaz that he was really going to extend his life for fifteen years, and to provide him with evidence, he messed with the rotation of the earth. :) He did it for the benefit of a single one of his children. Do we realize, I wonder, how much the Lord really cares about us? And how much he is willing to do for us... for each of us, personally? He is there in some significant ways, in each of our lives... and he will (literally) move heaven and earth for our benefit. We have no greater friend, no greater advocate... anywhere... than our God, our Father. No matter what our trials or struggles are... he is able to handle them, if we let him in... if we give him a chance.
