TRUST

Are you trusting God or self? Are you trusting your Bishop , pastor,or priest ? How about  family  or friends ? Do you trust  your doctor , lawyer,accountant  or even your  teacher’s  over God. Who created  you and knows the plans for  your life  before  you  were  born. 

 “Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord . For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which  is not inhabited. “Blessed  is the man who trusts in the Lord , And whose hope is the Lord . For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit”.{Jeremiah 17:5‭-‬8}.

Another  scripture  clearly states  ,

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones”. (Proverbs 3:5‭-‬8).

 So if God owns, and controls  everything then, why would  you trust  men,with titles  and degrees  over God,who is wiser than them all.How do expect  God to trust you when you  don’t  trust Him.

“Do not put your trust in princes, Nor in a son of man, in whom there  is no help. His spirit departs, he returns to his earth; In that very day his plans perish. Happy is  he who has the God of Jacob for his help, Whose hope is in the Lord his God”, (Psalms 146:3‭-‬5).

Why are you leaning  on your own understanding , Richard  Baxter said,”Self is the  most treacherous  enemy,and the most  insinuating  deceiver  in the world”.

However, Psalm  37:3-5 says, “Trust in the Lord , and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. Delight yourself also in the Lord , And He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord , Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass”.

There  is  no  peace,in your life,when you don’t  trust in God,as Isaiah  26:3-6 said , 

“You will keep him in perfect peace, Whose mind is stayed on  You, Because he trusts in You. Trust in the Lord forever, For in YAH, the Lord , is everlasting strength”

Again  I ask, who or what are you trusting ? your self , your education , your job ,friends , family , doctors , lawyers,etc. And you or they fail then what? You turn to God ,when you run out of options . 

LISTEN,  GOD SHOULD be your only  option ,and  your first option  not your parents , boss,nor pastor . 

FINALLY  : AS 2  CORINTHIANS 1:8-10 SAYS,

“For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life. Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us”.
