What are you trusting in?

“What will you do on the day of reckoning, when disaster comes from afar?  To whom will you run for help?  Where will you leave your riches?”  Isaiah 10:3.

Verse chosen from today’s Bible reading; Isaiah 8-10 and Hebrews 8.

The Assyrians are going to be coming for Israel.

They don’t know it, but Isaiah is warning them.

The warning is good for all of us.  What do we trust in for security?

We build up securities to make our life more comfortable.  We collect money.  We buy vacation spots.  And the list goes on.  But when trouble comes, those things will be worthless.

The Israelites are going to be carried away.  Nothing is going to save them.  And Isaiah rightly asks them how their cash will help them then.

Our trust must be in God.  We must be storing up treasures in heaven.  What does that mean?  We must be doing what God wants us to do.  We must be trying our best to please Him in everything because we owe Him.  He’s preparing a place for us in the after-life.

“Lord, everything I have is a gift from You.  Forgive me for hoarding what You give me.  For trusting what You have given me to save me.  You are my Savior.  In You I trust.  Take every part of me over, I beg.”

Where have you placed your ultimate trust?
