Where is your trust? Is it in yourself? Is your trust in your friends, family, your money, your possessions, or your job?
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.”Psalm 20:7
Hear me. I love my family, but my trust should not be in them. Not because they have done things not to be trusted. It’s just that people are limited by what they can and can’t do for another individual.
My family may try their best to always be there for me, but they are not available 24-7. They have their own lives and responsibilities, anyway. Besides, some things aren’t meant for them to handle for me.
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.”Psalm 3:5
When it comes to my friends, the same is true. When it comes to money and material things, they can be stolen, lost, or lose value. As for a job?
I am learning that a job is not my source of life. You can get sick and can’t work or even get fired. Then, what? Where will your help come from? Who will you trust?
When troubles come, I may call my mom about it. I might cry to my sister or my brother for help. You know what? I may even ask my friend about my troubles over coffee.
Though their support is appreciated and has its place, it won’t always be enough. Like I have to, I pray that they are putting their trust in God. With each passing day, we all will be given the choice to trust God, and we can encourage each other in this choice. My prayer is that, more times than not, we choose to trust God!
“Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge.”Psalm 62:8
