What comes to mind when you hear of King Uzziah? Many Christians recall the passage in Isaiah 6 where the prophet Isaiah had a divine encounter in the year of Uzziah’s death (Isa 6:1). But there are many more lessons that can be gleaned from the life of this king who ascended the throne at the young age of 16. Scripture says that Uzziah was ‘marvellously helped’ by the Lord. Uzziah’s many exploits squash the notion that ‘holiness equals passivity’. Let’s open our hearts to learn from his life and see why it’s so applicable for us today.
