Princes Shminces…

It is better to trust in the LORD
Than to put confidence in man.
It is better to trust in the LORD
Than to put confidence in princes.

Psalm 118:8-9

Oh how easy it is to put our confidence in men; in those who appear to be mighty or wise. We are often short-sighted, and can’t see beyond what is visible. God grant us faith that our eyes would see above and beyond, for man is like the flower. He fades and withers. His beauty and strength are for but a season, and then he fails. However, the LORD our God is a rock; solid and sure. There is no changing in His appearance or in His words. “For I am the LORD, I do not change” Malachi 3:6. Therefore cast your eyes upon Him. Be of good cheer. Trust in Him, for He shall not fail.

“…Surely the people are grass. The grass withers, the flower fades, But the word of our God stands forever.” Isaiah 40: 7-8
