Trust the Lord

Trust the Lord

The fear of man brings a snare [trap, pitfall, deception, trick, entanglement].  But whoever trusts in the Lord shall be safe. [secure; literally, set on high]  Many seek a ruler’s favor [face, good opinion], but justice for man comes from the Lord.  (Prov 29:25-26, emphasis added)

Justice means fairness, uprightness, integrity, reparation, compensation, payment, or remuneration.

Only God can provide justice for mankind in any situation or circumstance.  The Lord loves it when we’re dependent upon Him and His Word.  He wants us to rely upon Him, and to trust Him in all situations.  (See Ps. 9:9; 46:1, 11; 32:7; 119:114; 144:2)

So, instead of trying to find favor with some banker or friend, turn your heart and mind to the Lord Jesus Christ.  Trust in Him.  Ask Him to help you, deliver you, and rescue you.  He will not fail you, because the Word of God reminds us that the Lord is faithful.  (2 Thess 3:3)
