Trusting God First

Posted by Guy J. Green on Wednesday, June 1, 2016
Thus says the Lord: "Cursed is thew man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord."  Jeremiah 17:5.

Placing your ultimate trust in anything other than God is idolatry. Answer these questions about your Faith and Trust:
  • How can you know if your faith is not truly in God?
  • Where do I turn when I experience a crisis?
  • When I am hurting or afraid, to whom do I go ?
  • When I have a financial problem, whom do I want to tell first?
  • Where do I seek comfort when I am under stress or discouraged?
Could it be that you are saying you trust jn God, but your actions indicate otherwise? God often uses other people as His method of providing for you. Be careful lest you inadvertently misdirect your faith toward His provision instead of toward the Provider. God may meet your need through your friends, but ultimately your trust must be in God.

Don't be so stubbornly committed to trusting in human strength instead of God. Do not realize too late, that you have neglected to trust in the only One who could deliver you.  Don't make the same mistakes some many others has made. Go straight to the Lord when you have a need.  He is the only One who can provide for you.
