We’ve all experienced it. Someone promises you something then fails to deliver. Maybe they assure you that they will keep a confidence or not spread your personal information to others, then…loose lips prevail. Maybe a boss guarantees a promotion or other benefit after completion of a certain task or after a set amount of time, and it never happens. Politicians are notorious for pledging whatever necessary in order to get elected, then, well…things don’t materialize as stated. Lies run deep these days from every corner of society. There seems to be no one, AT ALL, that can be trusted. Focus on our Creator, not other fallible humans. YHWH is ever faithful, completely trustworthy and perfect!
It is better to take refuge in Adonai than to trust in human beings; better to take refuge in Adonai than to put one’s trust in princes. ~~ Psalm 118: 8-9
Adonai is a stronghold for the oppressed, a tower of strength in times of trouble. Those who know your name put their trust in you, for you have not abandoned those who seek you, Adonai. ~~ Psalm 9: 10-11
