Right from my very early years, I made up my mind not to live an empty life. I wanted to live with assurance; to know Godâ€™s purpose. I wanted to trust God with my life. I didnâ€™t want to do things just because everybody else was doing them.
But how was I going to know what God wanted? How could I trust God with my life if I didnâ€™t know Him?
I had to go to the Bible to study and be guided by the Holy Spirit into the revelation of His truths. Thatâ€™s one book that never speculates.
Therein, I discovered that God was more passionate for my success, victory, and joy than I could ever be. I discovered He loved me more than I loved myself.
Then it was easy to trust Him, to let go of my own dreams, desires and pursuits, and follow His divine plan.
Donâ€™t put your trust in the failing systems of this world. Donâ€™t put your hopes in a government or the society or some authority. The Bible says, â€œIt is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in princesâ€ (Psalms 118:9). The arm of flesh will fail; so, donâ€™t live your life relying on systems and structures created by man for your success and prosperity.
You were made to put your faith in God; in the Word of God. Youâ€™ve got to start practicing relying on God.
Our theme verse says, â€œDonâ€™t put your trust in human leaders; no human being can save you.â€ The 5th verse says, â€œHappy are those who have the God of Jacob to help them and who depend on the LORD their God.â€ Put your trust in God.
Study His Word. Get to know Him; to know Him is to trust Him.
you know Him, youâ€™ll make an unqualified commitment to Him. Youâ€™d never think that, somehow, youâ€™d end up a failure. Itâ€™s impossible. He loves you and certainly wouldnâ€™t allow anything to destroy you.
It doesnâ€™t matter whatâ€™s going on in the world; you can trust Him to take care of you and shield you from all evil.
