DON’T PUT YOUR TRUST IN PUNY MAN AS FIRST PRIORITY
A voice says, “Cry!” And I said, “What shall I cry?” All flesh is grass, and all its beauty is like the flower of the field. The grass withers, the flower fades when the breath of the LORD blows on it; surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever. —Isaiah 40:6-8
Behold, the nations are like a drop from a bucket, and are accounted as the dust on the scales; behold, he takes up the coastlands like fine dust. —Isaiah 40:15
All the nations are as nothing before him, they are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness. To whom then will you liken God, or what likeness compare with him? —Isaiah 40:17-18
It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in man. It is better to take refuge in the LORD than to trust in princes. —Psalm 118:8-9
How puny man is and how awesome our Lord is! There are men who think they are great and that they have done great things. Yes, maybe when you compare with other people they have done great things. Great nations, great cities, great building structures, great rockets, great farming techniques, great… Yes, when man compares himself with himself he has done great things.
But when man compares himself to God he is like the grass and flowers that exist for a moment and then are gone. Mankind is like a water drop in a bucket or dust on a scale that doesn’t even notice it. All the nations before Him “are accounted by him as less than nothing and emptiness!” Now, what can we compare God to? There is nothing to compare Him to… nothing and that is because He is so AWESOME!
So who are we going to trust in? Are you going to trust in some man? Will you put your trust in some leader? Will you put your trust in some government? Will you put your trust in some world organization? Let our top priority be to trust in the Lord! To understand Who He is and not trust in Him is absolute folly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xheo9vz6f9UU
Dear Father I will trust in You as my first priority. There are none like You. Nobody even comes close in comparison. Why would I trust anyone else as first priority? I would be a fool to do so. Yes, I shall seek to live for You in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Your Son Jesus.
