No Need for Psychics

“…who walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the Lord, and rely upon his God…”
— Isaiah 50:10

Our life on this earth is a pilgrimage. It has a beginning and an end and it is going somewhere, and it is important where we end up. Life is not a meaningless circling about, a meandering here and there with no particular purpose.

God is sovereign and has revealed in His Word how we should live, so that we will not walk in darkness. Many people find life very complicated. This world is a labyrinth with innumerable tunnels leading in every kind of direction. We don’t know the future. We don’t know where this road will take us.

In one sense, we are forced to live eventually in the future, and yet it is unseen to us. And so the heart of man cries out for guidance, and this is what sends so many people to call psychics on the psychic hotline, or to go to an astrologer or to do all of the various foolish things that people will do indicating their felt need for some kind of guidance. God condemns this kind of divination.

He tells us to trust Him instead. Those who know their God have already experienced Him well in the past and the present. Therefore, we can trust Him with our future. The Bible is infinitely better than tarot guards, crystals, psychics, or any other false substitute to true divine wisdom.

Lord, my Shepherd and Guide, give me strength for today to follow after You and not after any false gods. Help me not to deceive myself by thinking I am following after You in utilizing avenues of guidance that You have clearly forbidden. Lead me by Your powerful hand…
