Can the Things We Trust Save Us?

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 45-47 today.
God said to Babylon,
You are wearied in the multitude of your counsels;
Let now the astrologers, the stargazers,
And the monthly prognosticators
Stand up and save you
From what shall come upon you. (Isaiah 47:13)
The Babylonians had many counselors, including astrologers, stargazers, and prognosticators. They had others also. They had so many it wearied the nation. Yet, could their countless number of counselors save them? God challenged them to do it. We know it did not work because the mighty Babylonian Empire disappeared a long time ago.
In what do we trust? If anything other than God, it shall fail. Trust in God always for all things.
