Bible Reading Reflection: Isaiah One to Six

Isaiah 6: 17-22 “Human pride will be humbled, and human arrogance will be brought down. Only the Lord will be exalted on that day of judgment.
Idols will completely disappear. When the Lord rises to shake the earth,
his enemies will crawl into holes in the ground. They will hide in caves in the rocks from the terror of the Lord and the glory of His majesty.
On that day of judgment, they will abandon the gold and silver idols they made for themselves to worship. They will leave their gods to the rodents and bats, while they crawl away into caverns and hide among the jagged rocks in the cliffs. They will try to escape the terror of the Lord and the glory of his majesty as He rises to shake the earth. Don’t put your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. What good are they?”

These verses resonate with me because putting your trust in others can lead to letdowns and failures. God never fails us. It may feel at times He’s distant, but the truth is He is working in the midst of our season. His trust never fails.
My teacher from Votech school said it this way, “If you live your life to please people, your life will suck.” It’s quite blunt, but so true. You’re living your life to please God, not man.
