Looking for help in cards, horoscopes, or fortune tellers?
Do you hope for strengthening help from amulets, stones or crystals?
“But look, you are trusting in deceptive words that are worthless. Will you steal and murder, commit adultery and perjury, burn incense to Baal and follow other gods you have not known” (Jeremiah 7:8-9; NIV)
God had freed the Israelites from bondage in Egypt and brought them to the land of rest. But the Israelites turned to other gods.
God has freed us through Jesus and made us citizens of His kingdom so that we may have assured rest. But we too easily turn to other idols and seek help there.
“So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. 33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Jesus in Matthew 6:31-33; NIV)
Renew your thinking. Put God and Jesus more and more into the center of your thinking. Trust your God. Believe. Rely on His help no matter what hardships you may face. God always helps. Immediately? Better. According to His perfect schedule.
