One of the greatest dangers anyone can face is putting trust in the wrong place. Especially when the world is in chaos and leaders are finger pointing blame, we tend to look for political leaders to solve problems and restore a measure of peace. They always fail!
God warned Israel through Jeremiah with strong words; “Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord.” (Jeremiah 17:5). There is a consequence to trusting men. The heart is turned away from the Lord! This was a problem with Israel, and it is a problem with the Church. When men (even good leaders) become more important than Christ the Head of the Church, then we have turned away from Him. Jeremiah 17:6 says our trust in man becomes a “wilderness…an uninhabited salt land.”
What is the alternative? ““Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.”” (17:7–8).
Can you imagine what your life would look like if you completely trusted the Lord? He will produce fruitfulness in us when He is our trust, and there will be no need to fear the chaos of this world.
