Ahaz, The King Who Never Turned to God

2 Chronicles 28, 2 Kings 16

The Bible tells us that King Ahaz did not do what was right in the sight of God. He and the people of Judah worshipped idols. King Ahaz never turned to God, and he constantly had trouble as a result. Judah was defeated many times in battle, even by Israel. Instead of turning to God for help, Ahaz turned to the idols of the countries that defeated Judah, hoping that the idols would not be angry with Judah and that their trouble would ease. We learn from studying King Uzziah that as long as he trusted God, he was prosperous and powerful. King Ahaz did not learn from Uzziah. We need to learn from these kings of Judah to turn to God and put our trust in Him to help us. Match the Bible verse with the text that tells us something about turning to and trusting in God.
