Misplaced Trust February 18
Food for Thought: Prov. 18:11
As you go about your day today, make sure you do a priority check. Where have you placed your trust? What is your motive for what you have planned for the day? What pressures are you facing? Is money the motivating factor because that is where you have placed your trust as the solution for everything?
God never said you couldn’t have money, but money should not become a wall built up that prevents you from following Jesus. So many people get caught up in the confidence of riches, dragging themselves out of bed every day with only the stressful motivation of trying to build up wealth and the fear that if they don’t, then all will be lost. It’s a trap, and it will never fulfill them.
Be sure today that your focus, your decisions, your desires, are all based on the will of Jesus Christ and your trust in Him, not on trust in riches and the pursuit of them. Put your confidence in Him; He can be trusted. And He promises to never leave you nor forsake you. He will give you life, and life in abundance. Trust Him.
