What are you standing on?
In Isaiah 7 we find King Ahaz of Judah as he prepares to deal with an invasion from two kingdoms to the north. The people of Judah are terrified and looking for someone to rescue them. In this setting God steps in to remind Ahaz who is really in charge, and tells him exactly how He will deliver the nation despite their lack of trust in Him. Ahaz is challenged to stand firm in his faith, or he will not stand at all.
As you go through challenges of many different kinds, what or who do you rely on for help? The challenge given to Ahaz is equally valid for you and I today!
