Like Humpty Dumpty, We Fall-But, We Can Be Put Back Together Again
Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
2 I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.
3 Put not your trust in princes,
in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
4 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
on that very day his plans perish.
5 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
whose hope is in the LORD his God,
6 who made heaven and earth,
the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
7 who executes justice for the oppressed,
who gives food to the hungry.
The LORD sets the prisoners free;
8 the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
the LORD loves the righteous.
9 The LORD watches over the sojourners;
he upholds the widow and the fatherless,
but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin.
10 The LORD will reign forever,
your God, O Zion, to all generations.
Praise the LORD!
We all trust in someone or something; a political leader or preacher, a spouse or a child, a career, money, or our very own self that we hope will save us. But trust this: All the king's horses and all the king's men can't save you, only Jesus can!
- Matthew 6:21 says, "For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." Could your treasure be something you trust in? Why is it so important to understand what your treasure is?
- As Jeremiah 17:9 says, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?" I really did think my trust was in Jesus before my world fell apart and I broke. How can you know if your trust is in someone or something other than Jesus Christ?
- If you were put on trial for having your trust in Jesus Christ, would you be found guilty by a jury of your peers?
