21 Days of Dedication

21 Days of Dedication

Day #13

Psalm 118:8 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.


When we learn as children to trust someone, it is usually based on relationships that we have developed over time. Not many people will immediately take a strangers word concerning an event or a situation that concerns others. Trust is a slow moving thing. Lots of things must happen in order to gain the confidence of someone. That same trust that has been solidified over time can also be destroyed very quickly.

In the Psalm we read today, he admonishes people to put trust in the Lord. He even clarifies with the term “better”. Confidence that we might place in man can so easily be wiped away. Trusting the Lord will build so many other tings in our lives. Our relationship with the Lord is what builds the trust. That trust is established as we build our lives upon Gods Word.

In our journey of 21 Days of Dedication we are learning to trust His Word and in that we are rethinking our societies connections between people. Not that all people are bad or that all friends will disappoint, but the words of the song writer are clear… it is better to trust in the Lord. He will not let you down. Write about that today in your journal. God is worth building on.
