However, when ambassadors arrived from Babylon to ask about the remarkable events that had taken place in the land, God withdrew from Hezekiah in order to test him and to see what was really in his heart.
2 Chronicles 32:31
Have you ever been involved in something big only to have God pull it away? You thought for sure that He had been preparing you step by step, but for no apparent reason the rug was pulled out from under your feet. It’s easy to look inward and think you had done something wrong, that you were being punished. But even greater than that; maybe God pulled back so that you would grow and be even more prepared later. God works in so many different ways, be open to his plans for your life.
