"Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help."

Astrology is mentioned in our Scripture reading today, is one such attempt to sidestep trusting the LORD. Very early in history, man began looking at the rhythms and cycles in nature, hoping to find good luck and avoid the bad. He put his faith in the movements of the planets and stars, letting them influence his greatest decisions.

He is blest whose hope of blessing
On the LORD his God is stayed.
 
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY - Living without trust in God is like driving in the fog.
