It’s easy to misplace our trust. Many people can be so convincing, and we put undue hope in them—a smooth-talking acquaintance, a telephone scammer, or even a relative or longtime friend. Unfortunately, we often find out later that our trust was faulty and damaging. Our trust must first go to our Lord—who knows us best, and cares for us the most.
“Trust in the Lord forever! For the Lord is an eternal Rock.”—Isaiah 26:4
When I am tempted to put my trust in someone else,
Help me to consult you first,
to invite you into the decision.
You know better than any human what is the correct path for me,
how best to act.
Please help me to walk with your guidance in my heart.
