Psalm 9:10, “And those who know Your name put their trust in You, for You, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.”
God’s word constantly reminds us that trusting God is the only safe bet. See Proverbs 3:5, Psalm 37:5, and Isaiah 26:3-4.
What does God’s word say about putting our trust in men or man-made solutions? See Jeremiah 17:5, Psalm 118:8, and Proverbs 28:26.
It’s tempting to place our trust in things or people, rather than God. In the end, this misplaced trust will drive unintended results. People will disappoint us. Our wisdom will fail us. Other powerful people at times will betray our trust.
But when our foundation of trust is the Lord, when we trust His word–it is only then that we can cultivate a Spirit-discerned culture of trust in our personal and professional spheres of influence.
