 Who To Trust?

“Put not your trust  in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help.” Psalms 146:3

God’s Word is very clear about not trusting in ourselves or in other men to solve our problems. It is certainly vain to expect help from man for the problems that are a result of the sin of mankind.

“Trust  in him at all times; ye people, pour out  your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah. Surely men  of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie: to be laid  in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.” Psalms 62:8-9

God does not give us reason to trust in one person over another. It matters not how they are thought of by the world, God reminds us that we can only trust in Him. No one can move the balance against God.

“It is better to trust  in the LORD than to put confidence  in man. It is better to trust  in the LORD than to put confidence  in princes.” Psalms 118:8-9

We put our trust in God, not the “right” leader or the “best” choice of men. All of those in power are there by God’s choosing; ALL of them. Let us be content to rest in the mighty power of our God, and in His sovereign choice of those that will carry out His will to bring about His purposes in these last days.
