Trust in Him alone.

Psalm 146:3  Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 

This psalm, considered to be written by David, is remarkable. Here is a prince indeed, a King himself, shouting aloud for all the world to hear that men should not put their trust in him. Our hope must be in the Lord! We are called to praise the Lord with all of hearts and with all of our souls and sing praises to God while we yet still have our being on this earth. David is telling us not to trust in princes, even good ones like himself for he is but a man whose body shall be laid in the ground like every other man. Rather, trust in the Living God who made the heavens and the earth. Trust in the God of justice. Trust in the God who gives food to those who truly hunger, hunger after Him. In doing this you will have food for your soul.

Trust in the Lord who gives freedom to the prisoners. He came to set the captives free. He came to set at liberty, those who are bound by the chains of sin and hell and death. Trust in the Lord who opens the eyes of the blind. And in doing so you can truly sing ” I once was blind but now I see.” You will have eyes to see the glory of the risen King. Eyes to see His majesty. Eyes to see the train of His robe which fills the temple. Trust in the Lord who raises those who are bowed down. He gives grace to the humble. He elevates the lowly in spirit. He dwells in lofty places with the broken and the contrite. Humble yourself in the sight of the Lord and He will raise you up. Men die, all men die whether they are rulers or princes or presidents or kings, trust not in them. Rather trust in the Lord who reigns for ever and forever. Happy is the man whose hope is in the Lord.
