Isaiah 30: 1-2 says, “Woe to those who carry out plans that are not Mine, forming an alliance, but not by My Spirit, heaping sin upon sin; who go down to Egypt without consulting Me; who look for help to Pharaoh’s protection, to Egypt’s shade for refuge.”
Isaiah is writing to believers in this passage. Look at the first point that comes after the “woe to those who…”
- carry out plans that are not the Lord’s
The first point that has the Lord so worked up has to do with believers who carry out plans that are not of His making. God’s plans are His will. The most important place to be in life is in the center of God’s will. When we carry out plans that are not His then we move out of His will. Moving out of His will is the most dangerous place a person can be. There is little protection outside of the will of God. There is no spiritual oxygen there. There certainly is no peace outside of the Father’s plan.
So ask yourself today, where am I not in God’s will? (Look at the areas that are not working at the moment and often you will find a clue.) In the next blog we will look at forming ill-fated alliances.
