|Blessed is the Man that Trusteth in
|Thus saith the LORD; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the LORD. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited. Blessed is the man that trusteth in the LORD, and whose hope the LORD is.||(Jeremiah 17:5-7)|
We cannot place our trust in both God and in man. We either choose to take advice from man, relying on his strength or we embrace God's counsel, placing our faith in Him and His power. If we opt to rely on man, our lives will be useless and doomed to failure and as barren as an uninhabitated wasteland. But, if we trust and place our hope in The Lord, we attain purpose and success and have a fruitful life. And as Our Father says, blessed is the man that trusteth in The Lord for He will provide us with a meaningful life on earth and hope for salvation and eternity in heaven.
