Isaiah 37:6 ” Isaiah said to them, ‘Tell your master, This is what the Lord says: Do not be afraid of what you have heard – those words with which the underlings of the king of Assyria have blasphemed Me.’ “

The field commander of the Assyrian army had taunted the people with…”You can’t trust your God.” With that, the lyrics of a praise and worship song then popped in my head, “Whose report do you believe today?” The choice is ours to either believe in the reports of the world, filled with fear, discouragement, and anxiety…or believe in the Word of God Who said, “Be strong and courageous. Don’t be terrified – don’t be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” (Joshua 1:9) Or Isaiah 7:4, “Be careful, keep calm, and don’t be afraid…don’t lose heart.” It’s our decision who we listen to and put our trust in…the loud and defiant taunts of the world, or the soft, reassuring voice of the Lord.
