Uncertainty is in the air, anxiety is at an all time high and it's almost impossible to predict who you can trust!! If you read the Bible and history you will find out that this dilemma is not anything new. When Jesus was born an Angel of the Lord came and announced His birth to the shepherds that The Savior, Christ the Lord was born to save His people from their sins!! The universe shifted so that a Star came and led the "Wise Men" to Jesus. Herod the King was so troubled by the birth of the young child that he couldn't sleep and had all the male children under two years of age murdered trying to kill the Christ-Child that had rocked his world!! Joseph was warned in a dream to take his family to Egypt until it was safe in their homeland. God is watching over His people, He numbers the hairs of our head and knows when a sparrow falls to the earth. When you rise to face the day and when you lay down to sleep, pray this prayer of David!!
"Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust." (Psalms 16:1 KJV)
Ask God to protect you throughout your day and make a faith statement that you are trusting in Him!!! In the writings of David and Solomon we are constantly reminded not to put our trust in man! We must put our trust in God because "vain is the help of man". People make promises but they may or may not keep them but God is not like "man that He can lie". When you make "Faith Statements", you are allowing your Spirit Man to dominate your Emotional Man!! If you allow your emotions to rule in your life, you will be like the weather in the southern United States, changing every thirty minutes. You want to know who you can trust, GOD ALMIGHTY!!! He will not fail nor forsake you so Trust Him completely in every area of your life. Speak the Word of God over your life everyday so that the Holy Spirit rules in your life instead of every thing else.... He Reigns!!!
