Psalms 118:8

oIt is better to take refuge in the Lord pthan to trust in man.

 

 The Holy Bible: English Standard Version. (2016). (Ps 118:8). Wheaton, IL: Crossway Bibles.

Between the shortest chapter and the longest chapter in the bible, lies Psalms 118. Psalms 118:8 is in the middle of the bible and in it lies a worthy advice to me, at least while going through a tough time this week, and it is a trustworthy saying to believe in, that it is worth putting my trust in God than to rely on Man. Along almost 4 years since i join this company, i’ve learn many valuable lessons and one of them is don’t trust in people, and most important is don’t trust in myself, in my own abilities. Trust in the Lord with all my heart, and lean not on my own understanding, in all my ways, acknowledge Him and He shall direct my path. That’s one tough thing to do especially when all seems to go well, but seriously, I have almost nothing to contribute to such stage in my life, and in fact, all such is a reminder that what matters to God is not such success or wealth or even possessions Such only reminds me of a desire that eludes my sensibility to chase after what is worth it in eternity. I miss coming back to God and have my heart only overwhelmed by His grace. Then it is time, to Trust in God and Not in man or even myself.
