Today's Verse : Isaiah 2:22


February 22, 2012

Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of
what account is he?
-- Isaiah 2:22

God will humble the arrogant. He has a day designated to do
this. But, until that day dawns, God's Kingdom people must live
knowing that even the apparently powerful but ungodly will be
brought to ruin. We shouldn't trust in human power; it can
evaporate like dew in the morning sunshine. Human power is limited
by death. When the breath of a tyrant is gone, so is his power.
Once the life of an evil person is over, all that is left is the
evil. Our trust must be in Yahweh Sabbaoth, the Lord God of
heaven's armies. Anything else is a dim, small, and distorted
reflection of the real thing.

Abba Father, forgive me for those times that I have relied on my
own savvy, my own wits, and my own insight to life. Forgive me for
not trusting in your deliverance and for relying on underhanded
ways and improper partners. Please cleanse me and create in me a
pure heart and an unquenchable passion for you. In Jesus' name I
pray. Amen.
