Put your faith in God alone for your security (Isaiah 31:1-3). #NotGoingBackToEgypt #TrustGodAlone https://www.bible.com/116/isa.31.1-3.nlt
MORNING WATCH NOTES:
In Deuteronomy 17:16 God specifically instructs the Hebrew children not to trust in the nation of Egypt, not to consult with or trust in the power of Egypt. Egypt in Scripture looms large is a symbol of bondage. Nothing good can come of the believer who trusts in the powers of this world’s philosophies for help.
Instead God‘s people should look to God and him alone for wisdom and strength. One cannot trust the flesh or the philosophies of this world to provide guidance or security. Trusting in this world’s wisdom will bring calamity to believer. Lord, it is the joy of the sentry to put full faith and trust in you alone.
