You know the feeling. Bopping along through life. All is going well. Maybe even great. You're trusting the Lord. But you have no big challenges. You're comfortable. And then...
Something comes along to knock you off balance. Pull the rug out. Tip your apple cart. Fill-the-blank with your own cliche. But you know the feeling, right?
And, as it may seem, the creators of disequilibrium tend to bring a stationwagon load of their unexpected cousins along for the visit too. Before you know it you're on the existential elevator rapidly heading south.
"Whoa! Where have I put my trust? What have I allowed to become my security? Where has my dependence relocated all-the-while me unaware that it moved out?"
Where do I really put my trust? Or, more appropriately, who do I put my trust in?
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7
Do I put my trust in the created (myself & others) or in the Creator?
Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Galatians 3:3
"Oh, Lord my God, keep me from foolish, human dependence. May my trust be firmly, only in You."
