Who Do You Trust?

Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord . He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. 

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord , whose trust is the Lord . He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” 

The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?
Jeremiah 17:5‭-‬9 ESV

As I read Psalm 33 I was reminded where my help truly comes from and it reinforced to me that The Lord is the only one I can truly trust: 

The king is not saved by his great army; a warrior is not delivered by his great strength. 

The war horse is a false hope for salvation, and by its great might it cannot rescue. 

Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear him, on those who hope in his steadfast love, that he may deliver their soul from death and keep them alive in famine. 

Our soul waits for the Lord ; he is our help and our shield. For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name. 

Let your steadfast love, O Lord , be upon us, even as we hope in you.

Psalms 33:16‭-‬22 ESV
