In what, or who, do we put our trust? Is it money, friends, political power, or physical strength? You and I often seek something or someone to help us without considering where the help is coming from. Why do we do that? We panic! How do we know we can trust someone to help us? To trust anyone or anything requires full and complete confidence in something that does not change. Yet, the actual reality is that our lives are in a constant state of change. Our lives are unreliable, and undependable. It is wonderful when we have friends in our lives that we think we can depend on, however, we must remember that their lives can fall apart at any moment just like ours. Don’t get me wrong, we need those intimate relationships where we choose to bear one another’s burdens as the Apostle Pauls tells us, “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2. We can put our full confidence in God’s faithfulness. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” Hebrews 13:7-8. We can trust and hope in the Lord. Be careful of what or who you trust in. It or they may look big and strong, but so did Goliath. “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses; but we will remember the name of the LORD our God.” Psalms 20:7.
“Trust in the LORD, and do good.” Psalms 37:3a.
