TOPIC: TRUST IN THE LORD TEXT: ISAIAH 7 : 10 - 17 In Proverbs 3: 5, 6, we are encouraged to trust in the Lord with all our hearts and not to lean on our own understanding. King Ahaz, said to be one of Judah's worst kings, refused to team up with the people of God and shunned the God of Israel. He decided to look up to the Assyrians instead of the Almighty God. But that landed him and the Israelites in more trouble. Fear made him keep a distance from the Lord. But, unfortunately, what he was afraid of finally caused him shame and defeat. If you do not stand firm in your faith, it may be difficult for you to stand at all. If you depend on any other thing, instead of God, it will end up devouring you.
QUESTION Where have you put your trust? PRAYER Help me to trust in You, dear Lord, even in the face of fear and uncertainty, in Jesus name, Amen.
