"Where Is Your Trust?"

"It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." Psalm 118:8

Why is it that we will put our trust in people and things more than we do in God?  We will put our trust in medicine to make us well; in counselors to tell us what to do; in a judicial system to defend us; in our jobs to provide for us; in the government to take care of us; in law enforcement to protect us; in other people to affirm us yet we will not put our trust in God to do all of the above, plus more.

We put more trust in man than we do in God.  We put our trust in the creation instead of the Creator.  We put more trust in what is temporary than we do in He who is Eternal.  Something is definitely wrong with this picture.  Isn't He trustworthy?  Can't He who died for us be trusted with our lives?  Can't He who created us to begin with be entrusted with our well being?  Can't the One who loves us with an everlasting love that is greater than we can even comprehend be trusted to take care of us?  I am not saying that these things and people don't have a place in our lives at times.  I thank God for His grace that has given them to us... but He never gave them to us to replace Him!

What are you putting your trust in the most?  Is it in man and this worldly system?  Do they have a greater level of your trust then the Lord does?  Before you answer with, "Of course, I trust God more", take a good look at your life and your daily routine and choices.  Think about what you would do if suddenly today all means of help and support were gone and it was just you and God.  How would you feel, better yet, how would you react? 

Have a great day.  Do you put more trust in people and things than you do in God?
