I have posted many "Heartlight’s today’s verse" at different times. During the last few weeks, God again has been using Heartlight to strengthen and uphold me, but I can’t blog all of them. In the midst of the storms of life (and there are many right now) He is and has been upholding and sustaining me.
Today’s verse and thought:
Stop trusting in man, who has but a breath in his nostrils. Of what account is he?
— Isaiah 2:22
How many times have you been disappointed by someone for whom you voted, been betrayed by a friend, abandoned by a loved one, or let down by a church leader? While we love others and care about them, every other person in our world is just like us — a flawed human being who breathes the same air and walks the same ground as we do. Only One is worthy of our ultimate trust. He showed his trustworthiness to us by sacrificing what was most precious to him so we could know his love. Let’s not put our hope in other mere mortals; only God can safeguard our trust. Let’s put our hope in him!
Father God, there are many here at HSB and others that we know that are struggling with difficult situations. So many times, we do put our trust in your imperfect people. Lord God, help us always put our trust and our hope in you, Maker, Creator of heaven and earth. Who on earth is like you? Not one. Grant us your peace and give us your mercy to face the difficult areas of life. In Jesus most holy and precious name, Amen
