Wanting What We Do Not Need

"It is a sad thing to be impoverished by the things you want, while God is waiting to give you the things you need. Hezekiah clamored for another fifteen years of life, and he got what he wanted! But he ‘rendered not again according to the benefit done unto him; for his heart was lifted up: therefore there was wrath upon him…’ (2Chronicles 32:25). He lived to beget one of the wickedest kings who ever reigned over Judah—Manasseh, who was twelve years old when Hezekiah died fifteen years too late! Manasseh ‘built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down…[and] made Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem to err, and to do worse than the heathen, whom the LORD had destroyed before the children of Israel’ (2Chronicles 33:3, 9). What a pity Hezekiah did not die on schedule! He got what he wanted, and died too old!"
