Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help,
   who rely on horses,
who trust in the multitude of their chariots
   and in the great strength of their horsemen,
but do not look to the Holy One of Israel,
   or seek help from the LORD.

Isaiah 31:1

I want to get it right today

I want to look to the Holy One of Israel.

I want to seek my help from the Lord.

I don’t want to rely on the things of this world for strength, security, peace……..

I can’t.

People disappoint even when they don’t mean to.

Jobs bring stress even when they don’t mean to.

Stuff we accumulate eventually breaks, tarnishes, or simply wears out.

The only One Who stands the test of time is Him.

His love never fails.

His mercy is new every morning.

His compassion does not fail.

He loves with an ever-lasting love.

He begins good works and is faithful to complete them.

He was.

He is.

  He will be.

He is the Mighty King of Kings.

I want to rely on Him and Him alone.

Lord, forgive me when I put my trust in earthly things.  You are all I need.
