The breakdown of my marriage had caused so much confusion and sadness.
It even evoked a sense of mourning.
It felt like my husband had died.
It felt like this person I had trusted and sincerely believed in, no longer existed.
Have you ever experienced a loss like that?
If your trust has been broken, it can even be traumatic.
I know of a few “sisters” for whom this is a reality.
How your trust can be destroyed if you are abandoned by your family, by friends or by the brothers and sisters of your church.
How great is the disappointment if your spouse cheats on you, if you are bullied or ignored by other people…If you trust a person, you will be embarrassed
Psalm 146 is clear about that.
You trust someone who is just as sinful, weak and mortal as you are. His plans go into the grave with him. His power, wealth and intelligence, his talks and his pretenses. They do not make him any more than he is … A man!
Can we trust?
Does this mean that you cannot have a role model, a mentor or that you cannot admire someone?
Of course, you can!
As long as we continue to see the other as a person “with whom there is no salvation.”
We can have salvation and we can experience happiness, but we should not depend on another human for that.
There is only One in whom we can fully trust. Our God, immortal, unchangeable, the Truth itself. Our Father, who always does what He says.
He is the only one in whom a sinful and weak person can count on. The only one.
Because He is the Lord, Creator of heaven and earth, King for eternity!
