Trust, Lean, Rely

IMG_6053From the Heart of Abba Today

Sometimes our path appears a lot like this snow/ice covered driveway, slippery, dangerous and no good choice evident.

Thinking about that this morning I discovered the SAME verse in two very different places.

2 kings 18:21 says, “Behold, you are relying on Egypt, that broken reed of a staff; if a man leans on it, it will pierce his hand. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust and rely on him.”

Again in Isaiah 36:6 the same thing, “Behold, you trust in the staff of this bruised and broken reed, Egypt, which will pierce the hand of any man who leans on it. So is Pharaoh king of Egypt to all who trust and rely on him.”

That reminded me of the verse which says, “Some trust in and boast of chariots and some of horses, but we will trust in and boast of the name of the Lord our God ( Psalm 20:7).

When I looked THAT one up I noticed Isaiah 31:1 Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses and trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but they look not to the Holy One of Israel, nor seek and consult the Lord!

Then on to Proverbs 3:6 which is on the poster.
All of that arose from prayer/quiet time when He reminded me “Beloved the cure is to trust lean and rely on Me”

So how do we do that? By coming/going to Him over and over during the course of the day. By being intentional to nurture our spirits in a way that brings life to us. By turning and returning over and over and over.
