Today’s reading: 2 Kings 19:1-7

In business, how a crisis situation is handled can make or break a company. And it’s really no different in our personal lives. How we choose to initially respond when a tragedy occurs or something bad happens is critical because it sets the tone for the situation and often time determines the ultimate actions we take going forward.

Hezekiah knew this. So when he receives the demeaning and threatening message delivered by king Sennacherib’s representatives, he immediately responds by turning to God through Isaiah. Hezekiah recognizes that the situation is in God’s control and that the best way to handle this crisis is to seek God’s guidance and help.

What’s your style of crisis management? When a troublesome situation comes into your life, is it your practice to turn to God first? Why is this so important?
