Psl. 108 Devotional: VAIN IS THE HELP OF MAN
Thought for the day: Never put your trust in any man but God
God has been the help of man since time immemorial. We could see right from Eden that whatever is not from above is from below and whatever is from below is not of God.
The bible confirmed that: Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17
To do valiantly for the Lord, God must be your help. Reading through the psalm the second time spoke to me that nothing can be achieved without the help of God. Many years ago the Lord taught me a lesson from Psalm 118:8-10 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.
10 All nations compassed me about: but in the name of the Lord will I destroy them.
No man can help if God did not help. You can’t trust any man if God is not there for you, maybe you have trusted in a man before and he disappointed you. I am here to tell you that God will not disappoint you. Trust in Him and He will help you through.
Ø To do valiantly, you need the help of God.
Ø Do not be offended if you have been disappointed. Turn back to God and trust God.
Father, I refuse to put my trust in man and forget you. Help me Lord to always see you at the centre of it all and help me to hope on you always in Jesus' name.
