The Daily Nosh – Isaiah 31:1
Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help and rely on horses, who trust in chariots because they are many and in horsemen because they are very strong, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel or consult the Lord! (ESV) Isaiah 31:1
Nosh: Perhaps the lesson here is that when we face challenges or trouble in life and there is, what appears to be, an easy or obvious solution in human terms, we are not to assume the obvious but seek first God’s counsel. There may be a better solution or unseen pitfalls that only God can reveal and help us avoid. A word to the wise!
