The Message – #36
Who do we rely on? When we make decisions, what is the basis and foundation of those decisions? Isaiah now shares a story telling of Hezekiah and his rebellion from Assyria. Read Isaiah chapter 36, focus on verse 5.
I say, ‘Your counsel and strength for the war are only empty words.’ Now on whom do you rely, that you have rebelled against me?
Isaiah 36:5 NASB
Hezekiah has rebelled and now the enemy is coming to “get him back in line.” He taunts him, wanting to know what he is trusting in that gave him the courage to rebel.
What is the foundation for the decisions we make? Does God play a part in those decisions or is He the whole reason? If someone were to ask us why we do what we do, what would we say?
