We may have learned a long time ago that hoping only brings disappointment. Our hopes were dashed. The promises we believed were broken. We were left feeling like fools for ever hoping in the first place. But perhaps we were devastated because we put our hope in the wrong place.
“This is what the lord says: ‘Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans and turn their hearts away from the Lord. They are like stunted shrubs in the desert, with no hope for the future. They will live in the barren wilderness, on the salty flats where no one lives. But blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they go right on producing delicious fruit'” (Jeremiah 17:5-8).
Turning our life over to God means placing our hope and confidence in him instead of people, who will disappoint us. When we place all our hope and trust in other people, it’s like expecting a tree to flourish in a barren desert. People will disappoint us and are unable to satisfy our deepest needs. Trusting God changes everything. Jesus said, “The water I give beomes a perpetual spring within them, giving them eternal life” (John 4:14). When our hope is in God and our life is in his care, we are sustained when we otherwise would be devastated.
After reading these scriptures I can tell you that this is the truth. You may think you know someone, inevitably they will end up letting you down one day because they are only human. We can measure the degree of trust that we may put into a person by watching them and getting to know them. However, they are only human and they will not be there all of the time no matter how many times they tell you they will be. Only God can make this possible in your life. Put your faith where it truly belongs, before the throne, for he will never fail you nor forsake you. That is a promise that he made to all of those who believe in him. Say Lord my trust and confidence is with you and only you. I know with out doubt that he will not let you down.
God bless you all!!!!!
