John Bradshaw - What Are You Relying On?
You hope the Uber arrives on time, you're counting on a check to arrive in the mail because you have some pressing financial needs, you're hoping the person you voted for is elected, you hope the doctor is able to find the cause of your knee pain.
That's all right; you hope for certain things, you're relying on certain people, but when it comes to your salvation, what are you relying on then? A lot of people don't know what to open, so look with me at Isaiah 45:24, "Surely, shall one say, 'In the Lord have I righteousness and strength".
You know yourself too well to trust in you, you know how often you've failed and fallen, but even at times like that, especially at times like that, you remember that you have righteousness in the Lord, your trust is always in him. Faith in Jesus, claiming his righteousness is where you can always find hope. I'm John Bradshaw, for It Is Written.
