Isaiah 2:22 Stop Trusting Man

Back of person

Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? Isaiah 2:22 

People have all kinds of things to say. Scientists and doctors appear to know what is right and what is best. They have done the research and are supposed to be correct. Government officials always appear to have the best information about everything and anything and can guide the people correctly.

Some will hold on to what is said by someone because he has some huge title after his name and he went to some prestigious college. Others will believe the person because everyone else believes the person, regardless of what is being said.

Isaiah tells the people to stop just trusting people. People are temporary and just have breath, but no real knowledge or wisdom.

Believing in people can and will often lead to failure and fear. While scientists and doctors do know a lot, they do not know everything. In their limited knowledge there are many mistakes made leading people down the wrong road or in fear.

Believers tend to act in the same way as much of the world, they believe people. Many believers will follow some preacher or speaker, regardless of what is being said. One looks and sounds good, so he must be saying something right. Yet, some of these same speakers are leading people into open sin against God’s word.

Trust should be first and foremost in God and in God alone. Only God has the perfect answer every time. Only God has perfect knowledge of every situation. Only God has perfect wisdom in every situation. Only God will never fail.

If a person can trust Jesus with his life for salvation, he should trust God with everything else in his life. One should not allow that trust to be broken down and put into man’s words.

As you go through this life, who are you putting your trust in?

Do not allow yourself to be manipulated by the words of man through the various types of media. They will fail you and lead you down the wrong path.

Look to God for all needed wisdom and direction. God will never fail you. He has the big picture of the beginning and the end, and everything in-between when He guides you in your life.

Trust God today and see that He will never fail.

I pray today that you will know God’s word for your life; that you will be guided by the Holy Spirit; that you will trust in God alone; that you will walk the path God has for you; and that God will reveal when men try to lead you astray.
