Read Zechariah 10 today.

Zechariah 10:1-2 NLT[1] Ask the LORD for rain in the spring, for he makes the storm clouds. And he will send showers of rain so every field becomes a lush pasture. [2] Household gods give worthless advice, fortune-tellers predict only lies, and interpreters of dreams pronounce falsehoods that give no comfort. So my people are wandering like lost sheep; they are attacked because they have no shepherd.
As I read this chapter this morning, it reminded me of the meteorologists to which I listen when I am interested in the upcoming weather. I am amazed how frequently meteorologists miss the forecast badly. The stores empty of bread and milk because of a predicted blizzard, and then we receive only 1/2 an inch of snow. (It is not my desire to slam meteorologists. They make statements based on complex science every day. How many of us make as many publicly scrutinized predictions as they do, and get is right as frequently as they do? It is just because they are easy targets because their errors are very public.)
I do not think the point of this chapter is about meteorologists. I think what we can ask ourselves is whether or not we are placing our faith in the right place. Everyone lives by faith. Everyone places his or her faith in people and things every day. (Turning the ignition switch on a car is an act of faith. At the time of doing so, you believe the car will start, but you do not know for sure.) When it comes to the things that really matter, where do you place your faith? Is it in our household gods, the objects we acquire and love? Is it in people around us, who will tell us whatever we want to hear?
My faith is in the my heavenly Father, the creator of heaven and earth; in Jesus Christ, my Savior, who died on the cross for my sins that I might have eternal life; and the Holy Spirit, who dwells within me, empowering me for life today, and shaping me to be the person God created me to be.
In what, or whom is your faith?
