Trust Issues???

Are you tired of trusting people?

Have they let you down more times than you can count ?

Maybe it’s because you put so much trust in them. People fail not because they’re wicked but because they’re human. They have their desires, fears and shortcomings.

Take a look at Jeremiah 17:5-8

Thus says the LORD:

5 “Cursed is the man who trusts in man

And makes flesh his strength,

Whose heart departs from the

LORD.

For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,

6 And shall not see when good comes,

But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,

In a salt land which is not inhabited.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD,

7 And whose hope is the LORD.

For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,

8 Which spreads out its roots by the river,

And will not fear when heat comes;

But its leaf will be green,

And will not be anxious in the year of drought, 

Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
