who set out to go down to Egypt, without asking for my direction,
to take refuge in the protection of Pharaoh and to seek shelter in the shadow of Egypt!
Isaiah 30:2 ESV
What is your first reaction when something has become difficult and scary?
Do you try and figure out a solution by talking to multiple counselors? Do you buckle down and grind it out? Do you run away?
The Father wants you to go to Him. He will direct your paths. But unfortunately, that is usually our last move, when we have nothing else available, when we are desperate.
But even then, we don’t always go to Him. And because we don’t learn to go to God first, we struggle in ways we don’t have to.
Make Jesus your first stop. Get the right direction in the beginning. Get the right help. This is the way to do it!
Father, thank You for the opportunity to come to You whenever we need to.
