Google is brilliant isnt it! If you need to know something…”Google it”; (but be cautious on medical advice. You check out anything and you’ve got something contagious or fatal).
Often as christians we go to “Google” rather than God, with things that only God can or should give you advice on. Im not saying that advice from good trusted friends and associates isn’t right – Proverbs 11:14 tells us where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counsellors there is safety. Im just saying, like King David said, where does my help come from? and the answer is still the same today my help comes from the Lord.
In Ezekiel 29:16 you find this scripture: Egypt will no longer be a source of confidence for the people of Israel but will be a reminder of their sin in turning to her for help. Then they will know that I am the Sovereign Lord. I love this. Today the word Egypt is a metaphor for the world. Israel is (or are) Gods people. You are Gods people.
When we turn to the world, when we rely on the world, when our heart is in the kingdom of this world, things always turn to poop.
Joshua said choose this day whom you will serve….the gods, the things, of this world…or our Lord. Its your choice. As for me and my family, we choose to serve (have confidence in) the Lord. We’re not perfect, or fully there yet, but we are definitely aiming for 100% confidence. Thats where our hearts lie.
Bring on the Kingdom of God. Lord, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth, as it already is planeed and prepared, in heaven.
