Read: 2 Chronicles 32-33
Marked: 2 Chronicles 32:5, And he strengthened himself, built up all the wall that was broken, raised [it] up to the towers, and [built] another wall outside; also he repaired the Millo [in] the City of David, and made weapons and shields in abundance.
Preparation for battle. How many of us prepare before we encounter opposition? Hezekiah wisely prepared the defences of the city. He built up the broken walls and made weapons and shields in abundance. However, his trust wasn’t in these things or the strength of man, but in the Lord God (V8).
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God; truth, righteousness, the gospel, faith, salvation, prayer, and especially the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.
We must be prepared to use these weapons before opposition comes and build up our walls of defence.
