It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man. Psalms 118:8. NKJV.
Things happen to us in this journey called life that we sometimes don’t foresee or plan for. Take for example a man who has been employed with a certain company for over twenty years, reports to work one morning only to find out that he no longer has a job. I know some of you would say, hope he has a savings account or hope his spouse has a good paying job but before we come up with all kinds of alternatives, put yourself in that mans’ shoes. That hits a little closer to home doesn’t it? The truth is that some will say oh, am prepared for things like that and I would simply find employment elsewhere. we all know that could be easier said than done. However, the reality is that majority of people would not know what to do and probably don’t have enough saved up and cannot survive on a one income household. So when things like this happens, who do you go to and who would you trust to help you.
The scripture above encourages you to trust in the Lord rather than in any man for all your needs regardless of what they are. What I have discovered is that our society has taught us to trust in money and riches and this gives us a false sense of security. In 1 Timothy 6:17, the Apostle Paul tells Timothy to command those who are rich in this present age not to trust in uncertain riches but to trust in the living God who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Most of us have heard the saying, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” Do you know Jesus? He is the link between you and God and can give you that peace of mind to know that no matter what you are going though he can bring you out of it better than how you went in. Don’t put your trust in the provision, instead put your trust in the provider, God. These are Julien’s thoughts and what’s on his mind.
