‘Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.’ Psalms 20:7 (ESV)
There are a lot things that give people confidence these days; money, properties, connections etc. Some get so caught up in their confidence in what they possess that they get vauthy towards the seemingly less privileged ones. They boast of a tomorrow that they are not sure of in the confidence of what they possess, forgetting that the ultimate and sovereign God is the best to be trusted in.
My friend, who or what do you place your confidence in? Money? The value could depreciate at any time. People? They could die at any time as well. Houses? They could be sunk by an earthquake. Your job? It could be taken away by the boss. Only God can not be affected by any circumstance. He controls all circumstances and he never fails his beloved. He is the best to be trusted in. No other person can be as reliable as he is.
Never forget that our God is a jealous God. He is that way because he loves and gives you attention and he wants you to do the same to him. Those other things that people trust in instead of him stand between him and them. He could have those things removed or destroyed at anytime. Therefore, never let anything get between you and God. Trust him with all your heart. Boast of nothing besides his power to save you. He will come through for you, please place your confidence in him.
With Christ, you shall succeed!
