Today's Verse for Wednesday, January 9, 2013

Cease ye from man, whose breath is in his nostrils: for wherein is he to be accounted of?
Isaiah 2:22 (KJV)

Phil Ware

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

"If only I had a friend." "If only my father hadn't left." "If only she was more supportive." "If only..." People can fail us, but we still pin so many of our hopes on them. They are fallible and mortal just like we are. So while we are involved in the lives of other people, let's also remember to keep our hopes connected to the Son of God, who "defeated death and brought immortality and life to light" and who will "never leave or forsake" us.

Prayer...

Forgive, dear Father, when I have pinned my well-being and happiness on being accepted by a certain group or loved by a certain person. I know my only lasting hope is found in Jesus, in whose name I pray. Amen.
