2 Kings 18:13-19:37; Acts 21:1-17; Psalm 149:1-9; Proverbs 18:8

There are some questions that cut to core of our existence! King Sennacherib asked this question, “What are you trusting in that makes you so confident?” The King meant this as a way to intimidate Israel into surrendering. But, what the king didn’t understand was the God of Israel, is not a God to be mocked by anyone!

As long as King Sennacherib criticized Israel’s military ability he was on safe ground. But, when he spoke against God’s might and His ability to protect His children, the king crossed a serious line! Even though Israel was disobedient and had broken God’s commandments, they still were His people. He would not let anyone blaspheme Him!

Every threat that the king made, God said, “Not so!” Don’t ever underestimate God’s ability to fight for you even when you have not done everything right. Why? Because you are still His child! Keep putting your trust in God and you can be confident that no foe can confront you that God can’t defeat because if they come against you, they are really coming against Him and God never loses a battle.
