TOPIC: FALSE AND TRUE TRUST
TEXT: Jeremiah 17:5-18
Today, we are faced with two kinds of trust systems and their implications. The first refers to those who trust in man, who make flesh their arm and whose hearts depart from the Lord. Such people, according to God’s word, shall be like stunted shrubs in the desert; they shall not see when good comes.
The second group refers to those who trust in the Lord. They are different because they are like trees planted by the waters that spread out their roots by the river; they shall not see heat; their leaves are always green and in dry season, they always have water. They bear fruit continually. God challenges us to trust Him; He will not disappoint us. But if we trust man, we are building our house on a faulty foundation. Will you trust God or man? The choice is yours.
Prayer: Oh Lord, help me to trust you always.
