Today's reading Isaiah 29:1 - Isaiah 41:18
"Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as this people draw near me with their mouth, and with their lips do honour me, but have removed their heart far from me, and their fear toward me is taught by the precept of men." Isaiah 29:13 KJB
According to the Bible there are men that will teach us things wrong about God. We will get to a point where we will just be going through the motions but our heart is not in it when we worship (29:12). We will trust in our own strength or in someone else for what can get accomplished (31:1).
There will be men (and women) that will show by example that when things are going wrong or when there seems to be no way out that we need to go to the Almighty God for help. Like we can read in Isaiah chapter 37 about Hezekiah.
But no one is perfect so we need to have our own relationship with the Lord so we will know where to go (the Bible) and what to do (pray) when there are problems and trials happening around us.
God is not looking for a super Christian. He is looking for someone who will seek after the Living God (40:28-31) There is where you will find strength and power.
