A Gentle Whisper -- Listening for the Voice of God Johnny Almond  

Someone We Can Fully Trust

Warner Sallman Head of Christ

All the people of Egypt will discover that I am the LORD, for you collapsed like a reed when Israel looked to you for help and leaned on you. Like a cracked staff you splintered and stabbed her in the armpit. She put her weight on you, you gave way, her back was thrown out of joint.
                                                 EZEKIEL 29:6-7 NLT


Who or what do you trust?

The world?
     Egypt was once magnificent and powerful—
          superpowers are succeeded by others more powerful.

Sinful pleasure?
     It is never worth the hangover and the heartache.

Prestige?
     Human praise is empty—it can never satisfy your deepest longing.

Possessions?
     Making payments on what you call your own is a long treadmill.

People?
     Place your confidence in mortals and they can disappoint you.

Military forces?
     Aircraft carriers, tanks, infantry, stealth bombers, cruise missiles—
          all are useless means of defense without heaven’s shield of blessing.

Riches?
     Obsess over money and someday you will meet someone who has not—
          then you will realize how poor you have grown.

God?
     Every other staff will break and pierce your hand and heart.
     I am the Only Completely Trustable Spot in the entire universe.
     Lean your whole weight on My everlasting arms—relax.
