Isaiah 36:4 “4 Then the Rabshakeh said to them, “Say now to Hezekiah, ‘Thus says the great king, the king of Assyria: “What confidence is this in which you trust?
I don’t trust politicians. I don’t trust armies. I don’t trust the government. I don’t trust the banking system. I don’t trust Wall Street. I don’t trust the news media. I don’t trust the institutions of higher learning. You ask, “William,you don’t trust anybody,” I trust GOD!
The Rabshakeh was getting ready to intimidate the people of God with his charismatic and overpowering sense of self. He begins by asking of Hezekiah, “What confidence is this in which you trust?” He would try to do everything in his power to strike fear into the hearts of those who heard.
WHAT CONFIDENCE IS THIS IN WHICH YOU TRUST?
Brother and Sisters my confidence is in God. I just read the end of the book of Revelation where satan was cast into the lake of fire. I have read the end of the book and I believe the outcome: evil loses and God’s people are brought to HIMSELF.
My confidence is in God because HE is the most powerful force in the world…seen and unseen. There is nothing God can’t do. No one can stand opposed to HIM. The greatest nations of earth will one day acknowledge that HE is God but it will too late for them.
My confidence is in God because HE is always faithful. Show me one time…just one instance…just a second in time where God wasn’t faithful and I will erase these words. No one can because God is always faithful. He never turns His back on HIS own.
WHAT CONFIDENCE IS THIS IN WHICH YOU TRUST? Anyone who questions my confidence in God is on the losing side.
Father…greater are YOU in us that he that is in the world…I trust YOU and I need YOU everyday…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
