Breaktime: Trusting

Trusting

This is the fate of those who trust in themselves, and of their followers, who approve their sayings. Psalm 49:13

The fate of the self-serving wealthy is the existence of this material world. Their gain here will not follow them when they leave here. The Psalmist makes it clear that all the money in the world can not buy eternal pleasures.  Being wealthy is not the problem; it is trusting in the wealth-building on our own foundation.

It doesn’t seem like many people consciously say, “Today I am going to build on my own foundation.” But slowly, over time, life happens, and God is squeezed out to make room for having our own ways. We do this each time we trust in any other foundation other than Christ.

 When we become anxious or stressed, we have to stop long enough to ask who or what are we trusting in. Trusting in ourselves shows up in the way we work and play. If our skill set is all, we have to look forward to; then we are limited. But God gives us Himself to trust in each day and all He has already accomplished as our strength. He is able to do so much more than what can be calculated.
