Open Heaven 13 January 2020 Memorise: Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord. Jeremiah 17:5
Read: Jeremiah 17:5-8 Open Heaven 13 January 2020
5 Thus saith the Lord; Cursed be the man that trusteth in man, and maketh flesh his arm, and whose heart departeth from the Lord.
6 For he shall be like the heath in the desert, and shall not see when good cometh; but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land and not inhabited.
7 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is.
8 For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.

Message: – Open Heaven 13 January 2020 Monday Daily
Anyone who puts his trust in people is bound to get
disappointed. People are often unpredictable and not always in control of their
own feelings. No matter how much integrity a person has built up, certain
situations may make it impossible for such a person to do as they have earlier
promised. This is one lesson I learnt the hard way, especially when I became
the General Overseer of the Redeemed Christian Church of God.
Another reason it is difficult to trust people is that a lot
of people are not really who they portray themselves to be. In the little time
that I have spent on this earth, I have come across many great pretenders who
pretend so well that if not for the Holy Spirit, you can never know who they
are on the inside.
Thus, the Bible says in Psalm 118:8:
“It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.”

Believe me, no one can be trusted except God. You think your
Special Assistant can be trusted? Wait until things begin to get heated up and
you would see another side of that same loyal servant. I laugh when I see
wealthy men who put so much trust in their bodyguards. How much can you pay a
man with a family at home for him to take a bullet for you? You trust your
accountant with your money? Fine, but let’s pray the fellow never disappoints
Our God is a jealous God and the moment He sees that you
trust someone so much, He finds a way to reveal the wickedness of that fellow
and then you realize that the person cannot be trusted. Instead of trusting
people, trust the grace of God on their lives. This way, you acknowledge that
the only way they would not misbehave is by the grace of God. When God sees
that you recognize it is only by His grace that a fellow will not disappoint you,
then He will make that grace available. Put your trust in God alone.
Action Point – Open Heaven 13 January 2020
Trust the grace of God on people and not the people themselves. God alone is trustworthy.
