Man's way leads to a hopeless end! God's way leads to an endless hope!

Prov 14:12, “there is a way which seems right unto a man, but the end thereof is are the ways of death”

Jer 10:23, “O lord you know that the way of man is not within himself it is not in man that walks to direct his steps. O Lord correct me but with your judgment not in your anger unless you bring me to nothing”

Psalms 118:81, “my soul faints for salvation but I hope in your word”

Lam 3:26, “it is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord”

Psalms 78:7, “that they might set their hope in God and not forget the works of God but keep His commandments”

Psalms 130:5, “I wait for the Lord, my soul does wait and in His word do I hope”

Prov 26:12, “see you a man wise in his own conceit? There is more hope of a fool than of him”

Rom 8:24, “but if we hope for that we see not, then we with patience wait for it”

1 Thes 5:8, “but let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love, and for an helmet the hope of salvation”

1 Pet 1:13, “wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ”

1 John 3:3, “and every man that has this hope in him purifies himself even as He is pure”

Man and his wisdom and ways lead to death and destruction, and men think themselves to be doing correctly. As Jerimiah said, we are not able to know how to direct our steps but have to have the instruction and training that comes from the Lord through His word and commands. A man by himself cannot change His ways for he has to have at least; instruction on how to turn to God. Look at David a man after God’s own heart, he said he faints but is waiting on God to fulfill His word. We men think that our ways are better and that we are better and trust in ourselves like the Pharisee that prayed with himself. We have to stop trying by our wisdom, understanding, knowledge, and imagination stop using our ways to saved us. What did David do? He waited, he did not save himself. When the enemy surrounds us and we look like we are going to be destroyed, do not be dismayed but hope in the Lord that never forgets and sees the hope we have in him. Let God glorify His name and you thank Him for it. While we wait on God we must try and purify ourselves from the ways of man and the wisdom from this world by renewing our mind, changing our thoughts, and bringing forth fruit unto repentance. God wants to be the Father of His children that says thank you daddy for doing this for me.

Father we pray that we might turn from the hopeless ways of this world and it wisdom. We know that the wisdom that leads to salvation is foolishness in the eyes of the world, for the world says save yourself but you say wait on Me and I will save you. May those that wait on you not be ashamed, Glorify your name, In Christ name may it be so.
