Then the commander stood and called out in Hebrew, “Hear the words of the great king, the king of Assyria. This is what the king says: Do not let Hezekiah deceive you. He cannot deliver you! Do not let Hezekiah persuade you to trust in the LORD when he says, ‘The LORD will surely deliver us; this city will not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.
When I read this, I began to sense the king’s impending doom. He either has no idea that he is challenging the God of the universe, or he is so puffed up and arrogant that he doesn’t care. Our God’s promises are true. He never changes. He is the Creator, Sustainer and Lord Almighty. We can rest in this.
