It Is Written… Isn’t It?

February 6, 2020


Proverbs 3:27-29 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbour, Go, and come again, and to morrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee. Devise not evil against thy neighbour, seeing he dwelleth securely by thee.


“Cleanliness is next to godliness.” “God works in mysterious ways.” “God helps those who help themselves.” These three phrases can be found in Hezekiah 1:12. Now before you look them up, it’s a joke. There’s no Hezekiah 1:12. It sounded like there could have been, right? So what do these phrases have in common with Hezekiah 1:12? Like the reference, they’re not in the Bible. We use these phrases all the time, and want to believe they’re in the scripture, when actually they are not. In fact, they all three in some way contradict scripture.

  • Nothing in the Bible says God holds hygiene in any priority over anything else. A clean heart is what interests God. The Bible says the outside is only what man sees. (However, please take a bath. If not for God, at least for your neighbors. It’s hard for you to be a witness when people will not come near you.)

  • God does not always work in mysterious ways. It’s true, the ways of God are above men, and so sometimes hard to understand. Nevertheless, God has made His plans for this earth, and your eternal life very clear in His Word.

  • Finally, God does not always help those who help themselves. It’s in contradiction to what God has said about trusting in God. Our verses today show God also helps those who help others. God takes care of all our needs. If you are trusting in you, you’re faith is in the wrong place.


  “..If any would not work, neither should he eat.” That is in the Bible, (2 Thess. 3:10.) The phrase God helps those who help themselves isn’t. Actually, it should say, God helps those who help others and trust in Him. Let’s live out the word today.
