Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. —Psalm 20:7
While serving in World War I as a merchant marine, British actor Herbert Marshall was required to wear a foul-smelling life jacket.
He hated wearing the putrid preserver, and at the close of the war, contemptuously tossed the repulsive object overboard in celebration. He then watched in horror as the long-tormenting object sank like a rock!
Like Herbert Marshall, you and I often put our security in things that really won’t save us. Things like material possessions, finances, and job status…even things like our own good works.
In Jeremiah 17:5, God warns us, “Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and whose heart departeth from the LORD.” But two verses later He says, “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.”
So I want to ask you an honest question today: Who (or what) do you put your confidence in? If your trust isn’t in Jesus Christ, you’re holding onto a life preserver that will sink when you need it the most!
Praise God that He is trustworthy, and ask Him to help you fully put your trust and confidence in Him. ————From Senior Living
