On What Do You Rest This Trust of Your?

"On what do you rest this trust of yours?" That question was posed to Hezekiah, king of Judah as he was under seige by the king of Assyria.
That really is the $64,000 question. In fact, it is the only question. Everybody believes something. The key thing is to make sure what you believe in is adequate.
The discussion in Isaiah 36 talks about trusting in chariots, or trusting in Egypt, or trusting in fancy words. We place our trust in inventions like that all the time. If we have a better leadership development program. . . If we have a stronger youth ministry. . . Sometimes the Lord blesses with chariots or youth ministry. Sometimes he wants us to trust him without them.
We must always make sure our trust is God, not in the means God uses to help of deliver.
So I ask, "On what do you rest this trust of yours?"
