Where are you looking for help?

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

We must be determined that God is our help and we will not look to other things. The psalmist writes and says: ‘MY help is from the Lord!’ It was a settled matter for him.  But yet, often when we face troubles we can turn to the strangest things.  We must not look in the wrong places for help.
Years ago I went to visit a lady in our church. She and her family had faithfully served the Lord for 40 years. She was a godly lady. But I was so surprised when I got to her house as she had hung crystals around her house and felt that they would have a positive effect.
Don’t turn to other things; don’t look to the weird and the questionable. We can end up turning to the wrong thing and that’s when things usually end up worse.
