Never Trust Anyone….Completely

Hi, again!

I have another excerpt for you from Oswald Chambers (found at http://utmost.org/put-god-first/, along with his other 364 entries) and the editing and emphasis will be mine throughout:

” ‘Jesus did not commit Himself to them…for He knew what was in man. —John 2:24-25‘.

Put Trust in God First. Our Lord never put His trust in any person. Yet He was never suspicious, never bitter, and never lost hope for anyone, because HE PUT HIS TRUST IN GOD FIRST. He trusted absolutely in what God’s grace could do for others.

If I put my trust in human beings first, the end result will be my despair and hopelessness toward everyone. I will become bitter because I have insisted that people be what no person can ever be— absolutely perfect and right.

Never trust anything in yourself or anyone else, except the grace of  God.

Until later, take care in Him.

Fred
