July 11, 2017: SOAP #2777: Isaiah 8-10; Hebrews 8

Scripture:  Isaiah (NIV) 8:19 When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people enquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?
20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.

Observation:   There seems to always be people wanting someone to tell them what their future will be.    In Isaiah's day, it was the medium or spiritist; today it is the fortune teller, palm reader, tarot cards, or horoscope.    Rather, we should consult God!

Only God can accurately predict my future.   He holds tomorrow and I trust Him only to provide information to me about my future.

Application:   When God speaks, He always speaks in agreement with His Word, the Bible.   The better I know the scriptures, the better I will be able to recognize when God is speaking to me.   To claim to I desire God to speak to me, then To ignore Bible reading is to show God I am   not really interested in hearing from Him!

Prayer:   Heavenly Father, thank you for the Holy Bible.   You are as faithful to speak to me through the scriptures as I am faithful to read it.  Forgive me for the times I have not read it.   Forgive me for the times I read it, but did not allow changes to come to my life.   Amen
