Psalm 118:8 8 It is better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence in man.
We live in contract driven society. Today if it’s not in writing you can’t have much trust in the deal you are making. It is really ashamed that our word is no good any more.
We can trust God. The Psalmist said, “It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
The Psalmist draws a stark comparison between God and man. God we can trust…but man…that is another question. Too often we fail each other. Many times we deceive each other. We are good a breaking promises. But, God…HE is never untrustworthy.
We can trust God to TAKE care of His people. Oh how many times I know God has been at my side in the hardships of life.
We can trust God to REMEMBER His promises. Every promise God has made He had kept…WOW!!!
We can trust God to UNDERSTAND our needs. If God understands the needs of the birds of the air then HE really understand the needs of HIS people.
We can trust God to SAVE His people. Praise God for HIS salvation that is sure.
We can trust God to TURN toward His people. When a child screams in pain any good parent is going to turn toward the sound of that child. God will always turn toward HIS people.
Father, thank YOU for Your faithfulness morning…noon…evening...day after day…week after week…year after year…In Jesus Name…AMEN!!!
