“And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.” Ezekiel 29:16 (KJV)
Chapter 29 begins a proclamation against Egypt whom the “House of Israel” had placed confidence several times in standing against their enemies.
Israel had adopted many of the false deities of Egypt, trusting in them, having confidence in them, rather than the LORD.
Today we Christians can put confidence in many different things as well. Robbing GOD of the confidence, the faith and trust we should have solely in Him.
Where is your confidence today? Your education? Your lack of education? Your children, your car, your house and land can all be places we might put our confidence.
The Lord GOD will let you know that He truly is the LORD. Begin by calling on the name of His blessed Son Jesus who bled and died on the cross, was buried and bodily arose from the grave, and He ever lives today.
