Psalm 44:6-8 I do not trust in my bow; I do not count on my sword to save me. You are the one who gives us victory over our enemies; you disgrace those who hate us. Oh God, we give glory to you all day long and constantly praise your name.
I love this! It made me stop and think. Any time I a frustrated with the government, I am putting my trust in the Government .... Or I have been. Is it really a large army, or Social Security that can save me? No, that is God. It is what God will do for me when I trust Him with my future, with my enemies, with my health. God tells me in his word that he will feed and clothe me. I just need to keep my eyes on Him.
If I feel like a friend has let me down it is because I put my trust in them. Don't get me wrong, we need friends we can trust. But our trust for our lives, our hope should always be in God. In fact when I learned to put my trust in .god, he surrounded me with wonderful, trustworthy friends.
God cares about our every need, He loves us and want to protect us, provide for us, send down blessings in our lives. He sets us up for success. We need to be as faithful as David and alway depend on God.
