st me. How many times have you heard someone say that phrase and leave you feeling like it was the last thing you should do? People who ask you to trust them typically do so because they have given you ample reason not to trust them. Someone who has earned your trust through their actions shouldn’t have to ask for it. And yet, In Isaiah 7:1-9, God is going to expose the people of Judah’s lack of trust in Him, even though He had proven time and time again that He was a trustworthy God. One of the greatest signs of their lack of trust was their worship of false gods. Every time they did so, they were telling God they didn’t trust Him. They were putting their hopes in something or someone else. And King Ahaz was going to be faced with the task of taking God at His word, or allowing the circumstances surrounding him to dictate his decision-making. Would He trust God, in spite of what was going on around him, or would he allow his fear to overwhelm his faith in God.
