“Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.” Jeremiah 17:5

Is it not funny that someone will put all his entire life on another fellow being? It is like missing salt and salt together in a soup and you expect not to make the soup too salty but in the end, you end up spoiling it with too much!

It is also like a man who does the same thing all over and over again while he expects different result.
We all understand how devastating it is for a man to trust in another man. The Word of God has several chapters and verses that warn us against this.

God keeps telling us the side effects of trusting a man. Take a deeper thought on the following verse 6 of Jeremiah 17; “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.”

Do you now understand why it does not worth it trusting another man? It’s just a waste that will yield no positive fruits.

God wants you to trust Him and Him solely. You are not being force to do this BUT you are and will be doing well to your soul when you fully decide to trust God for all your needs, your situation and your life.

Now we will continue with Jeremiah 17 and verses 7-8 to see the wonderful results on a man who genuinely trust God “Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.”

I believe I will leave it for you to decide who to trust; and that is, are you going to trust your fellow human being or are you going to trust God?

The truth is; you don’t lose anything by trusting God. In fact, you gain more. Your life changes when God becomes your ultimate trust. DO NOT lean unto your own understanding but trust God with all your heart (Proverbs 3:5).

Whatever you want in your life, trust God for it! Are you looking for deliverance from any form of sickness, depression, barrenness, failure? Trust God to help you. Do you feel there is not good that life can offer you? Trust God to change your circumstance.

There is no uncle, aunty, sisters, friends, colleagues, strangers, spouses, children, parents, godfather and mothers that can help you the way God does.

Please, I implore you to take that decision today and solely trust God for everything you need, you want, and you desire.

Thus saith the Lord; trust me, I say, TRUST ME!
