Who Are You Counting On?

I often hear people say things like “You can’t trust anyone” or “I help everyone but no one is there when I need help.” In Isaiah 36, the question is asked, “Who are you counting on?” That is such an important question. I ask you today, who are you counting on?

Sennacherib, the king of Assyria, was threatening Jerusalem. A message from the king’s chief of staff was sent to King Hezekiah asking who he was counting on and to make an attempt to get an alliance to be formed. Instead, King Hezekiah understood the great alliance he had—he called out to the Lord for help. The Lord promised victory and not only did an angel kill the Assyrians at night, but the king met his end at the hands of his very own sons.

People will always fail you. There is no one in your life that can always be there for you and never let you down. People are finite, imperfect, and limited. God never forsakes. God can do the impossible. God loves no matter what you have done. He forgives. He pours out His grace. He fills you up with His Spirit and never leaves your side. So who are you counting on?

“Do you think that mere words can substitute for military skill and strength? Who are you counting on, that you have rebelled against me?” – Isaiah 36:5 [NLT]
