Trust

Trust

Who do I trust? When I need help, who do I call? If I need some money to get me through a rough spot, who do I go see?

I trust in friends. I trust my family. I care what the latest celebrity, sports figure or politician thinks about something.

God’s goal for me is that I trust in Jesus, my Master. Jesus is in control God’s country. Jesus is in charge. Jesus is the only one who knows me well enough to prescribe the right solution.

The first thing I should always do is call on God to see what his plans are. Nothing else matters.

Psalm 118:5-16 The Message (MSG)

Pushed to the wall, I called to God;
    from the wide open spaces, he answered.
God’s now at my side and I’m not afraid;
    who would dare lay a hand on me?
God’s my strong champion;
    I flick off my enemies like flies.
Far better to take refuge in God
    than trust in people;
Far better to take refuge in God
    than trust in celebrities.
Hemmed in by barbarians,
    in God’s name I rubbed their faces in the dirt;
Hemmed in and with no way out,
    in God’s name I rubbed their faces in the dirt;
Like swarming bees, like wild prairie fire, they hemmed me in;
    in God’s name I rubbed their faces in the dirt.
I was right on the cliff-edge, ready to fall,
    when God grabbed and held me.
God’s my strength, he’s also my song,
    and now he’s my salvation.
Hear the shouts, hear the triumph songs
    in the camp of the saved?
        “The hand of God has turned the tide!
        The hand of God is raised in victory!
        The hand of God has turned the tide!
