There’s nothing like starting off a good Valentine’s Day sweating. ;)
After a good, long warm-up, I completed an ab workout with the hubby. It was basically the same workout we made up the last time we did an ab workout together, except with more cardio in-between. (We threw in some skaters, squat jumps, and X Jumps to keep our heart rate up).
Breakfast was a yummy protein-packed pancake.
Yep, that hit the spot.
I’ve been whipping through the book of Isaiah. For an Old Testament book, it reads pretty quickly. I came across this gem while reading in Chapter 30: God is talking to His nation (Israel), who has turned away from Him to find refuge and protection from the Pharaoh of Egypt by making a treaty with him. Check out what God has to say about that move:
You make plans that are contrary to my will. You weave a web of plans that are not from my Spirit, thus piling up your sins. For without consulting me, you have gone down to Egypt to find help. You have put your trust in Pharaoh for protection. But in trusting Pharaoh, you will be humiliated and disgraced. For though his power extends to Zoan and Hanes, it will all turn out to your shame. He will not help you even on little bit.
Yikes. Israel, putting their faith in a powerful ruler that they could tangibly see, sealed their fate. Why put your trust in a person when you have the Creator of the Universe to rely on? Fatal mistake.
One that I’m so guilty of.
It’s so easy to bank my happiness on Jason. My savings account on Wells Fargo. My security on ADT. But seriously, all those people can (and have) fail. Because they’re human. Only God can perfectly secure those things, so all my plans need to be based on His will, not mine or my husbands or anybody else’s.
Now that’s a basket worth putting all your eggs in.
QUESTION OF THE DAY
Do you make plans without consulting God first?
