It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.- Psalm 118:8
Have you experience being hurt because of expecting too much?Are you the one who is a reliable friend giving everything yet when it comes to you there’s no receiving?
Trust.. what is trust? According to Merriam webster it means to believe that someone or something is reliable, good, honest, effective, etc. : to have confidence in (someone or something). Big deal! Trust’s by product is expectation. If you trust someone we really believe them, we have our confidence in them.
Trust is vital in a Christian life. However, not everyone have the same thinking as we are, like what you think of them is not the same thinking they have. They dont think what you think. You want them to be honest cuz you are honest but they are not. Some lack sensitivity others are full of it. But I believe it has a special reason behind. You see God allow things to happen for our own good. He allow us to be with someone who lacks sensitivity for us to learn how to give without expecting anything. To give with a joyful heart not thinking what will you get later but you can expect God for your reward because you will reap what you sow.. He knows what you are doing every detail of it and He knows your heart, He created you love, we are created by Him and for Him. He is in control.
Nothing is permanent in this world everything will end. Whether we like it or not. Everything in this world changes, and we can not remove the fact that the only permanent thing in this world is change itself. That makes all things temporary.
Even your dearest and closest friend can change.. our family can change .. we also change.
“Do not trust in a friend; Do not put your confidence in a companion; – Micah 7:5
I’ve learned the truth of this verse by experience and I believe even you. I’ve expected too much from friends that made me real hurt. It really hurts you know.. It stings, it will break a heart, you seem like betrayed. Everyone has experienced it but I’m glad of the special lesson behind it. Then the Lord speaks in my heart in that season telling me not to trust anyone and to put my confidence in man but I can trust Him, the One who never changes who is always the same forever. Jesus indeed protected me. I released my emotions to Him and He take it all and He has given me His peace that surpasses all understanding. Instead of hating them I started to understand and trust my Lord Jesus even more. I even love them more. The experience is a blessing. Im grateful to God for helping me know the lessons behind. “All glory to God Almighty” Jesus did it.
