Spread It Out

2 Kings 18:30, “Neither let Hezekiah make you trust in the LORD, saying, The LORD will surely deliver us, and this city shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of Assyria.”
Not only does the fool say in his heart there is no God (Psalm 14:1), but he seeks to ruin the trust that others have in the Lord. The only thing more foolish is to be persuaded by such nonsense. When confronted with the blasphemous boasts and threats of the Assyrian Rabshakeh, Hezekiah went to the Temple and literally “spread it before the Lord” (2 Kings 19:14). It is better to trust in the Lord than put confidence in man, even one with a massive army and thousands of chariots. Hezekiah and his people trusted Jehovah. Their enemies were defeated. They were saved. God was glorified. Trust Him today!
