Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils.
Why hold them in esteem?
It hurts to read and hear stories of religious leaders and politicians committing heinous and unethical acts, and their followers being shocked and horrified, because they put so much trust in these leaders. Their followers idolized them, in some ways they deified them, and then couldn’t believe they hadn’t measured up to their expectations. Desperation will sell you out every time. Trying to make someone into your savior, will set you up for misery every single time.
We put our trust and faith in things we can verify with our five senses, yet we are easily disappointed by these things because they can and do fail. We need to put our trust in God who blesses us and gives us life each day.
Our impatience and need for instant gratification impairs us, and in weakness we would rather rely on man with all of his flaws, faults, incompetencies, and hang ups, than to rely on God who is perfect in every way. We are truly works in progress—clay that has to keep being molded during a long, drawn out process. Man has limits, God doesn’t, yet we rely on the former for what only the latter can do. Let that sink in.
Father, I am speaking into my reality now that I put my trust in You to always provide for me when I need it, and that You will place the right people and right situations before me to help me fulfill my purpose in life. I don’t need an intermediary in man to reach You, for You are always with me—listening, watching, and waiting. I thank You for blessing me with Your presence and dependable action. Amen.
