When it comes down to trust, I will always put my trust in Christ. When I ‘trust’ man, I really only trust the Christ in man. No Christ? No trust! Why? Because human nature is constantly seeking to take the easy way out, selfish gain, or to please it’s own flesh. This is why I give thanks to God for the blessings that come my way through men. I understand that what good I do for others, or what good things others do for me, is all because of Christ in us that rises above the flesh and gives Glory to God.
It is important to remember when we have a need that God is the ultimate source of what we are in need of, and God cares more about our needs than any living person on earth. Our needs may be met by the hand of man, but it is the hand of God that initiated the action on our behalf. Give him thanks, and trust HIM! God will ALWAYS be faithful! Once I learned this fact about ‘Trust.‘ I was able to live my life unshaken! My faith is secure when my trust is secure.
(John 2:23-25 NLT) Because of the miraculous signs Jesus did in Jerusalem at the Passover celebration, many began to trust in Him. But Jesus didn’t trust them, because He knew human nature. No one needed to tell Him what mankind is really like.
