Daily Decisions Rather Than One-Time Experiences

2 Kings 18:24, “How then wilt thou turn away the face of one captain of the least of my master’s servants, and put thy trust on Egypt for chariots and for horsemen?”
How we have walked does not determine how we will walk. Past victories do not guarantee future wins. King Hezekiah had led Judah in a great reformation. Idols ground to dust. Pagan places of worship destroyed. Temple worship of the One True God restored. Then Assyria besieged Jerusalem, and battle rather than blessing was on the horizon. Nevertheless, God calls His people to daily walk by faith not by sight. The purpose of battles in God’s economy is to build character in the lives of His people. Trust Christ ALONE for victory. Any other source is just a broken reed, unable to hold your weight. Trust Christ alone ALL THE TIME. This is a daily decision, not a one-time experience. This is always the right decision, even when the blessing doesn’t seem to come. Trust Him. Every day.
