Jeremiah 17:5-6, “Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.” It is very dangerous to put your trust in man. You need to ultimately put your trust in God for all things because man will fail but God cannot fail. It is important for us to look at this scripture from the New Living Translation, to help us understand how dangerous it is to trust in man. Jeremiah 17:5-6 (NLT), “This is what the Lord says: “Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength 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, in an uninhabited salty land.”
Psalm 20:7-8, “Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the Lord our God. They are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright.” There is no future trusting in horses and chariots. God will do anything for those who trust fully and totally in him. Your trusting in man is a barrier to living a glorious destiny. Keep your focus on God. Nobody can match what your God has in store for you.
