The Bible compared each new king to King David. David followed after God with his whole heart. The King James Version says, “David acted wisely in all his ways, and the Lord was with him,” 1 Samuel 18:14.
2 Chronicles 28:1, “Ahaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he was king in Jerusalem for sixteen years. And he did not do what was correct in the eyes of the Lord as David his father.” Modern English Version
King Ahaz did not have to stay this way. Each day, for 16 years, he could have started fresh and done what was correct because God’s mercies are new every morning, (see Lamentations 3:22, 23).
“He’s often called the God of the ‘second chance.’ How short-sighted is that? If we got only two chances we’d all be miserably, hopelessly lost. But instead He’s the God of the “seventy times seven!” (see Matthew 18:22). In Greek, seven represents infinity. So He’s the God of unlimited grace.” Facebook.com/The Word For You TodayUSA/
I have infinity times an infinite amount of chances to continually correct what I do!
