Day 197

by Rev Joel Yong

Isaiah 30:2-3
They go to Egypt without asking me. They look for shelter under Pharaoh’s protection and look for refuge in Egypt’s shadow. But Pharaoh’s protection will be their shame, and the refuge in Egypt’s shadow will be their disgrace.

Instead of seeking God- Israel struck up an alliance with Egypt, thinking they would be protected.

When Babylon attacked- Pharaoh came with his army but seeing the size of the Babylonian armed forces- he turned tail and ran. Israel was subsequently conquered.

We might rationalize that a powerful organization or a person of high status can protect us but we can find no greater power to defend us than the Almighty God. He is above all powers. Let us seek Him today and always.
