April 21, Isaiah 38, Hezekiah appeals to God

Hezekiah is given a death sentence and he immediately turns his face to God and makes his appeal. I think that part is right, the first thing we should do, in all situations is turn to God. But note that he asks to be saved based on his own works. Ever do that? Ask God for something based on your works?  God I've been serving you for all this time, why won't you grant me this? It's a flaw in all of us and perpetuated by our performance based society. The simple fact is that what we may do for God is considered reasonable service, and in a lot of cases we do things that God never asked us to do. Hezekiah was saved because God had a reason, certainly his prayer had an effect but one can't call it humble when he cites how he's walked with God, remembering the good but what about the bad? If we weigh them all on a scale the bad side certainly tips over. Fortunately for us when we come to Him, confessing our sins and asking for forgiveness he remembers them no more.
