Old Testament In a Year: September 30 – Isaiah 47, 48, 49

Isaiah 47, 48, 49
Focus Verse: You felt secure in your wickedness; you said, “No one sees me”; your wisdom and your knowledge led you astray, and you said in your heart, “I am, and there is no one besides me.” – Isaiah 47:10

When we don’t know much, when we don’t have much, when we’re low on money, when we have little to no connections, when we just don’t know how things are going to work out, it can be easy to trust in God because that is the only thing we can do. It can be easy to be obedient to Him because, after all, we have been told that obedience will bring us blessings.

But what about when we have everything? When we have really good connections and so much money we can buy whatever we want?

Do we think that financial abundance gives us the freedom to sin? That dollar bills will hide our wrong actions from God? Do we think that power means peace and might is right? Do we feel secure in ourselves and in what we have attained?

God forbid!

Regardless of the education we receive or of the riches we attain, may nothing ever lead us astray from God, who is the Giver of all good things. May we always say, “God is, and there is no one besides Him.”
