THE MESSAGE

IT IS BETTER TO TRUST IN THE LORD THAN TO PUT CONFIDENCE IN MAN : Psalm 118:8

****************************************************************************************************

1.POWER

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man because God is all powerful. The things which are impossible with man are possible with God. The Lord has promised to show us great and mighty things when we call upon Him. He does great and unsearchable things and marvelous things without number . Therefore we must put our trust in God.

******************************

Matthew 19:26

Jesus looked at them and said, "With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible."

’Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.’

Job 5:8-9

"But if it were I, I would appeal to God; I would lay my cause before him.

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed, miracles that cannot be counted.

2.PROMISES

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man because God is faithful to fulfill His promises.

Man often fails to keep his promises. He may even lie and deny the promises he has made. Man may also change his mind and refuse to fulfill his promises.

But God is not a man to fail to keep His word. The word which comes from the mouth of God will not return void to Him but will accomplish the purpose for which it was sent. Therefore we must put our trust in God.

******************************

Numbers 23:19-23

God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?

I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it.

"No misfortune is seen in Jacob, no misery observed in Israel.The LORD their God is with them; the shout of the King is among them.

God brought them out of Egypt; they have the strength of a wild ox.

There is no sorcery against Jacob, no divination against Israel. It will now be said of Jacob and of Israel, ’See what God has done!’

Isaiah 55:11

so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Mark 13:31

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.

3.PRESENCE

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man because of His presence with us . He has promised to be with us always even till the end of the world . He has said " I will never leave you nor forsake you ". He is our shade at our right hand.

No man can be with us all the time. Man may also pass away from this world. But God will be with us at all times and in all situations . His presence will be with us in times of joy , sorrow, celebration, loneliness, disappointment, fulfillment, prosperity, poverty ,health ,sickness etc. Therefore we must put our trust in God.

******************************

Matthew 28:20

and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

Hebrews 13:5-6

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you."

So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

Psalm 121:4-5

indeed, he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD watches over you— the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

4.PARDON

It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man because of His pardon and forgiveness and mercy. The Lord will not keep His anger against us forever . He has not punished us according to what we deserve . He is merciful towards us. Even when we are afflicted because of our transgressions and iniquities He is merciful to deliver us when we cry out to Him.

Man may not forgive us or show mercy to us when we fail. Man may not rescue us when we suffer because of our mistakes. David preferred to fall into the hands of God rather than into the hands of men because God’s mercies are very great. Therefore we must put our trust in God.
