Psalm 146:5 (KJV), “Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the Lord his God”

Tonye partnered with her bosom friend to do a business and the business prospered, but when it was time to share the proceeds, she got the shock of her life; her friend disappeared and became incommunicado. After this experience, her slogan became “trust no man”.

Tonye’s conclusion was based on a hurt, and you may have come to the same conclusion if you have experienced a similar situation. This however is neither my emphasis nor the reason for today’s topic.

Psalm 146:3 (KJV) reads: “Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help”.

“Are you for real? Do you mean there is no help in princes? Why then do we appeal to them for help?” Someone might ask.

I believe these questions were answered in Proverbs 3:5-6 which says: “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths”.

If you are trusting the Lord with all your heart, you cannot trust in another at the same time. If you are able to trust anything else, it shows you have not trusted the Lord with all your heart.

Go into today knowing that when you put all your trust in God, he directs your path and this may include getting you help from a prince.

Prayer confession: my trust is not in any man neither is my trust in anything. My whole trust is in the Lord and he will direct my path in Jesus’ name, amen!
