Self Rescue

The people ignored ultimate realities and focused on distracting themselves.  The temporal is all that they saw.  Ultimately, God condemns them for their self-rescue attempts.  They did not look to and trust in the Lord God, but instead in themselves.   (Isaiah 22:13–14)

It’s Okay to Not be Okay
