God or Men

Jeremiah 17:5

Thus says the LORD: ” Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the LORD.

When we look at this verse, we tend to think that this verse isn’t for us. We tend to think that we have trusted God with all we have and not trusting in other men for our source of strength, hope, and even salvation.

But, people also tend to forget that every little thing that happens in our lives can become our downfall in this verse. Try this for example:

Let’s just say you are a university student, and you have an important exams coming up. Of course you’re going to study a lot harder than before. But then, you only rely on your own wits and brain, and not counting in God for the exams. Of course you still have to study hard, but don’t ever forget to count on God for your studies. If you only rely on your own wits, your flesh is your strength. If this happens, you can get tired either physically nor spiritually. Just imagine when your body doesn’t get enough water. The body will be weakened. The same thing applies to your spirit, and the spirit craves food and water from Jesus Christ. Take a look at this verse:

John 7:38

He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.”

And Jesus also said in John 4:14

but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.”

You see, that was just one example. There are still a lot of examples in our daily lives that can become our downfall. We should do our part as best as we can for God in every activities we do, and let God do His part in bringing strength and victory for us. Be very refreshed šŸ™‚

I dedicated my life to Jesus Christ who has helped me with my once-miserable life, and to do His work in this world; that is to reach people who still doesn't understand about Him and the Life He offer. He is not a myth. He is very Real. I can be who I am now because of Him. He healed me, and showed me His abundant Grace. I was lost but then He found me; through the eyes of Love, He saved me.
