TRUST IN THE LORD
It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8 (NKJV)
Do you always trust people to do things for you or to make something happen for you? If that is the case, you have to stop and start trusting in God for everything. You have to begin to trust in the Lord and not in people. You have to trust in the Lord and not lean on your own understanding and trying to make things happen in your own superficial way. You have to remember that God makes all things beautiful in his own time.
The scripture today says, "better to trust in the Lord than to put your trust or confidence in man." Man can fail you, man can hurt you physically, man can hurt your feelings and disappoint you and judge you and condemn you. But God can never disappoint you. What have you got to loose in trusting him, nothing.
You may be going through a situation in your life physically, spiritually or financially, whatever it may be, trust in the Almighty God and he will show himself strong in your situation. Take your mind off your situation and focus on being in his presence and trusting him. He will begin to lead you and direct you to your solution when you are in sync with the spirit of God. Listen to his directions and be obedient to his leading to your breakthrough.
Like the song says, "Trust and obey for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey."
Lord today, help me to trust in you and not lean on my own understanding. Let me in all my ways acknowledge you and not look unto man, but trust you and only you for my sustenance and well being, in Jesus name, Amen.
Take an inventory of situations in your life where you have sought people for solutions first instead of seeking God first in prayer for a solution. Repent and see how you would have approached those situations trusting in God.
