Pastor Tim Alsbaugh goes deeply introspective as he unpacks the significance of the first three Psalms of Ascent, Psalms 120-122. He explains that although ten of the Song of Ascents were written by David, four of them were written by King Hezekiah, and the remainder was written by Saul.
The first three were written by King Hezekiah, and Tim focuses on these specifically with a promise to finish the teaching at a later time.
King Hezekiah, served the Lord diligently, but he had no male heir to take the the throne when he died. When the prophet Isaiah came to share with him that the time would come for him to die, Hezekiah cried out to the Lord for more time to complete the work He had started. Because of his request the Lord had compassion on him, and through a miraculous act, Hezekiah was granted 15 more years to live and reign as the King of Israel.
Tim shares that we have to understand that we have the ability to speak what the Lord says, which will ultimately defeat the enemy. He explains that when we are a Believer in Christ we will experience trouble due mainly to the fact that we have taken a stand for what we believe in.
