Why do we do this? Is it because we think they truly care about us and would never hurt us? Is it because we can physically see them, touch them and speak face to face with them? Is this the reason why?
Why don’t we put our hope and trust in the ONE who created us? The ONE who knows what we are facing. The ONE who knows what we are going through? Is it because we can not see, touch and speak to HIM face to face? Is this the reason why?
The Word of God tells us in Psalm 146:3: “Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there“. Powerful people, hmmm, could this scripture possibly be referring to our government officials on every level? Lawyers, doctors, psychologists, judges, etc? How about, places where you go to for help and are turned down? How about the ones we go to for spiritual guidance? Could this scripture possibly be talking about them too? Hmmmm…………………………………
The one thing we must remember about all the above is this one thing: THEY ARE HUMAN!!!!!!!!!!!! THEY ARE NOT PERFECT JUST AS WE ARE NOT PERFECT!!!!! Please remember this!
Some of God’s Promises:
Romans 15:13 says, “I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit”. Psalm 146:5 tells us, “But joyful are those who have the God of Israel as their helper, whose hope is in the Lord their God”.
Notice in Romans 15:13 it says that God is the “source of hope”. Not man, not our friends, not the government but God is the one and only source of our hope! And when we place our hope in Him, he will: fill us completely with joy and peace! We will be joyful! How awesome is that!
My friends, place your hope in the Lord! He is the only one who cares for you. He loves you so much that He sent his ONE and ONLY SON to die on the Cross for you! That is love!
As I end my friends, I leave you with a verse of a song which I absolutely love. The song is: THE SOLID ROCK.
MY HOPE IS BUILT ON NOTHING LESS, THAN JESUS BLOOD AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. I DARE NOT TRUST THE SWEETEST FRAME, BUT WHOLLY LEAN ON JESUS NAME. ON CHRIST THE SOLID ROCK I STAND, ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND. ALL OTHER GROUND IS SINKING SAND.
