Like Humpty Dumpty, We Fall-But, We Can Be Put Back Together Again

Psalm 146

Praise the LORD!
Praise the LORD, O my soul!
 I will praise the LORD as long as I live;
    I will sing praises to my God while I have my being.

 Put not your trust in princes,
    in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation.
 When his breath departs, he returns to the earth;
    on that very day his plans perish.

 Blessed is he whose help is the God of Jacob,
    whose hope is in the LORD his God,
 who made heaven and earth,
    the sea, and all that is in them,
who keeps faith forever;
     who executes justice for the oppressed,
    who gives food to the hungry.

The LORD sets the prisoners free;
     the LORD opens the eyes of the blind.
The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down;
    the LORD loves the righteous.
 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!

Today’s Truth

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!

Discussion Questions
  1. 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?
  2. 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?
  3. If you were put on trial for having your trust in Jesus Christ, would you be found guilty by a jury of your peers?
