Roy’s Blog: “Dominoes”

II Kings 19:35 “That night the angel of the Lord went out to the Assyrian camp and killed 185,000 Assyrian soldiers.”

I can remember playing with dominoes all my life. I would stand them up in different patterns just to watch them fall. As I got older we would play different games with them, but the memories I had of how the dominoes would all fall down starting with the one I touched remained.

Sometimes life seems like a domino pattern. You hit one problem and here it goes–a whole long line of problems and headaches follow.

The people of Israel were surrounded by the Assyrian army, with no hope of defeating them in battle. It must have been beyond words to find out that the whole army of 185,000 soldiers fell in one night, just like dominoes. God had heard Israel’s cry and sent an angel to take care of the problem.

God can do the same for us. He can knock down our problems just like dominoes. “With God all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26
