There are times when it may seem hard to trust in the Lord. When your money is down, when nobody is around, when people are talking about you, when people and family say that you will fail, and when you don’t know what the future holds are all times when our trust in the Almighty God can waver. However, look at what or who God really is. He is the Almighty God. God of everything. There is no other God than Him. Any situation that you are in, God knows it, and He is on your side as long as you are following Him.
When Hezekiah was king over Judah. He saw the defeat of the Israelites in Samaria. The Israelites were defeated because they did not obey God’s commandments. Hezekiah, king over Judah, however, did obey the Lord and all His commandments. As a result “The LORD was with him, and he was successful in everything he did (2 Kings 18:7).” However, during this time, Hezekiah’s trust was tested when the powerful Assyrian emperor threatened to attack Judah and insulted God. Instead of buckling under pressure, Hezekiah trusted in the Lord, and put the matter in the Lord’s hands by praying and consulting with Isaiah the prophet.
Hezekiah and Judah did not have to lift a sword in battle with the Assyrians. One night 185,000 soldiers died. They were not murdered or slaughtered by man, but an angel of the Lord went through the camp and killed them. Think of it! One hundred eighty five thousand; that is a lot of people. The emperor was later killed by two of his sons. This is a tragic fate, but who can truly mess with the Almighty God? Nobody!
This even tells us that God is in control and will fight our battles for us if we respond correctly from threats, despair, loneliness, uncertainty, etc. If we respond in prayer and Godly counsel we will have victory! Our adversaries whether physical, psychological, spiritual, or emotional are no match for the Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Who are those insulting God today? Those that say Jesus is not the son of God. Those that say all religion is the same. Those that say God is okay with sin, homosexuality, fornication, adultery, lying, cheating, stealing, etc. Those that speak against the Holy Spirit, saying, that there is no power over sin through Jesus Christ.
Live the life that Jesus gave you. Live the life that God intended for you. Love God and trust in him, that He will supply all your need (Philippians 4:19). Our God is a great God and there is none like HIm. There is no being as strong. Nothing, no person, or being can compare to God. If we trust in God and follow Jesus Christ’s example, we will have life continuously (John 10:10).
