Isaiah 36:18–‘Beware that Hezekiah does not mislead you, saying, “The Lord will deliver us.” Has any one of the gods of the nations delivered his land from the hand of the king of Assyria?’
Rabshakeh, the commander of the Assyrian army was speaking to the people of Judah about how Assyria was going to defeat Judah and their king Hezekiah. Rabshakeh used the argument that none of the other gods of the land have rescued cities from Assyria, so why would God rescue Judah? We should never get tricked into comparing God with any other idols of gods that others may cling to. Only the true God is worthy of our trust and devotion. Those who would compare God to anything else are wrong and will ultimately be defeated.
Lord, I love You and You are Holy and over all things. I praise You for Your glory and for being greater and mightier than anything else. I will place my trust only in You, no matter what other people say or threaten.
