Amaziah, the king who turned away from the Lord

Choosing your own path

Amaziah chose to do things his own way, after having experienced the help of God. When a prophet was sent to him from the Lord to make him realize the absurdity of what he was doing, Amaziah made it plain that he had better keep quiet. We see that he was determined to continue doing things his way.

There is definitely an element of pride and self-will in his answer to the prophet. He will then taste the consequences of his choice to continue on his own path. “There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof is the ways of death.” (Proverbs 14:12; 16:25.)

This video on Amaziah presents three practical lessons for us. Let us persevere and be encouraged by the Lord to follow Him faithfully.
