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

Psalm 146:3 Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save.

A lot of us have experienced hurt mainly because we’ve placed our entire trust in people. Some of us have been hurt by our parents, ministers, politicians, spouses, and children.

We can avoid all this hurt by trusting in the only One who cannot change. Place your trust in God. God won’t let us down. He has no hidden agenda and He’s not manipulative. He only wants what’s best for us.

As for people, God will tell us who we can give a portion of our trust to. He’ll tell us who we need to keep an eye on. He’ll even reveal some things about a person, through discernment, that were never spoken.

As much as we’d like to trust in the people closest to us, in the back of our minds we must remember that they’re humans living in a fallen world and cannot be trusted completely.
