Psalms 118:8-9 – It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.
It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.

These two verses have so much in them. They were part of my devotions this morning and spoke volumes to me.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord. How do we do that? Stay in His word; keep in constant communion with Him; bask in His Presence.

When we trust in people, we always are disappointed. They don’t live up to our expectations. Then why do we keep on trusting in them? It’s part of this world to trust in people. But that’s loving in the flesh. To live in the spirit, you need and must trust in God!

Trust in princes? That’s like trusting in our government. Who trusts our government these days? Trust seems to have gone out the door! Who is safe? The only way to safe is to get in that refuge with the Lord. He is the only one you can trust. He is the only one who won’t let you down. He is the only one who’s word never changes…and His Love is always there for you to grasp onto.

Let’s make a decision today. To take our refuge in the Lord. Will you join me?
