A Little From Psalms (4)

"It  is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." (Psalm 118:8 NKJV)
Trust is confidence in and reliance on the integrity, ability and strenght of a person or thing.
There is a tendency to trust humans around us, because of  wealth, position and influence.  We somehow have  such confidence beneath the threshold of our consciouness and most times we dont realise it until the chips are down.  We have people we call men of substance, men of timber and caliber, but remember that no matter how influencial a man is, he is still a man -  a created being, with limitations and weaknesses, and also in need of help  of the ALMIGHTY God for sustenance. 
It is wrong to hold everyone in doubt, but it is neither right to have more confidence in man than in God. How do you know if your confidence is in man and not in God, because putting man first in your life means you have no confidence in God at all.
1.  If the dominant thought in your heart borders around human's ability and help.
2. If prayer is your last resort. A believer that does not pray has confidence in someone/something else.
3. If disappointment from men have 'great' impart on your life.
"Thus says the Lord : “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, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which  is not inhabited." (Jeremiah 17:5-6 NKJV).
It is better to trust in The Lord!

The Word Always works!

" He is, so are we in this world." (I John 4:17 NKJV)
You are what the says you are
You can do what the word says you can do
You have what the word says you have
It remains true whether you believe it or not
Your doubt cannot undo it
Because your faith didnt create it, Grace did.
If you say its not showing,
I will tell you its because
You have refused to acknowledge it - philemon verse 6; and
because you aint 'working' it
The word ALWAYS work for those who work it - Phil. 2:12
Once again I say:
