The word of God certainly declares to us that “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 “(Psalm 118:8-9). There is no doubt that the Lord desires for us to trust people. He desires for us to trust in our leaders, especially those who pray and lead us in the things of God. However, He never desires for us to trust in man or to put more confidence in man or the government more than we do him because man will let you down, and governments…well let’s just say you can’t trust any of them. The believer must come to the place where he/she trust God more than anything or anyone else because man can’t deliver us and regardless of how much money the government takes from the American people they will never be able to provide for us. It has been tried down through the years and we come back to the same conclusion that God is. Thus, if we are going to come out we are going to need God. If we are going to overcome for real we are going to need God. If we are ever going to realize our potential we are going to need God. Thus, it is imperative that we trust him; for it is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in anything above God.
