Trusting in Humans or God

Trusting in Humans or God

Over and over in Scripture, we are shown that trusting in people is not the way to go. Trusting in people is not the same as trusting people that have shown themselves to be trustworthy. On the other hand, for those who trust the Lord, there will be blessing. They will be strong, not afraid, and free from unnecessary worry. The Lord can look into a person’s mind, and decide if they are right with Him.

Learning to fully trust the Lord with everything is a process. By reading His Word daily and giving my day and my life to Him, I am learning more and more this trust.

Father, I am so thankful that I have You and Your faithful love and mercy in my life! I will continue the process of learning to fully trust You with everything. You are my God, and I love You. AMEN

Lord, teach me what You want me to do, and I will live by Your truth. Teach me to respect You completely for You are my God. Psalm 86



Trusting In Humans Or God

Jeremiah 17:5-11

6-26-15

Scripture:

5 This is what the Lord says: “A curse is placed on those who trust other people, who depend on humans for strength, who have stopped trusting the Lord. 6 They are like a bush in a desert that grows in a land where no one lives, a hot and dry land with bad soil. They don’t know about the good things God can give. 7 “But the person who trusts in the Lord will be blessed. The Lord will show him that he can be trusted. 8 He will be strong, like a tree planted near water that sends its roots by a stream. It is not afraid when the days are hot; its leaves are always green. It does not worry in a year when no rain comes; it always produces fruit. 9 “More than anything else, a person’s mind is evil and cannot be healed. Who can understand it? 10 But I, the Lord, look into a person’s heart and test the mind. So I can decide what each one deserves; I can give each one the right payment for what he does.” 11 Like a bird hatching an egg it did not lay, so are the people who get rich by cheating. When their lives are half finished, they will lose their riches. At the end of their lives, it will be clear they were fools. (Jeremiah 17:5-11 NCV)
