Don’t put your trust in mere humans.
They are as frail as breath. What good are they?
– Isaiah 2:22 (NLT)
God questions man’s trust in man rather God Almighty. He shares man’s futility and questions why anyone would seek to put his or her trust in another person, especially when God is seeking you out. He wanted to rectify His relationship with His chosen people.
God had already called Israel out for its rebellion and idolatry. He was sickened by their sacrifices. He was not impressed by their rituals. Nothing could overshadow their sins against God.
We need to see where our real help comes from in this life. We can see people. They are visible, but we need to answer whether or not such people are truly vital to your existence.
God is our true help. He is in heaven, but He desires to be near to us. He wants a deep relationship with us. He is our true heavenly help. His desire is for us to be better and that means better off with Him.
Don’t rely upon man. Go to God. God will send those who can help your way based upon His Holy Spirit’s urging. It starts with you and God.
