Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save. Psalm 146:3
Trust in a person is something that most people say that they have a hard time doing, yet, do it all the time. People trust that the other person will stay on his side of the road while driving down the road. Trust that the cashier will ring up the products correctly. Trust that the electricity company will keep the power running correctly. Trust that the boss will provide the paycheck with the correct pay.
These things are normal day-to-day things that people trust in others.
There are higher levels of trust, that many people attempt to trust in other people. Those in government positions are trusted to make things better in a city, state, or nation. They are expected to get rid of all crime and bring joy and pleasure to life. They are expected to remove all fear of harm.
The psalmist states that you are not to put your trust in human beings. All trust is to be in God and Him alone.
At first this may sound like something crazy to even consider. Think about it, Jesus told Peter to step out of a boat and walk on water. Moses was to go up against Pharoah with no army. The three Hebrew men went into a hot furnace. These and many more instances were people being led by God to do something that did not make sense. Yet, in each case, God came through for them and provided the needed salvation for them.
God is there for you. The world may say that they have the solution to your problem, but it is only a temporary fix or a cover-up. Another human being cannot solve the problems in your life. No one can bring about the peace and life that you need. Do not place all your trust in the people of this world.
Trust in God. He is the only one who is fully in control of everything. He can meet every need you will ever have. Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life of every person that will come to Him and put his trust in Him.
Who do you trust today?
Those in the world, who will fail you?
I pray today that you will know the faithfulness of God; that you will trust in God alone; that you will listen to what God says; and that you will point others to God for trust in their situations in life.
