Only God Can Truly Care for You, Therefore Only He is Worthy of Your Faith

Give your burdens to the Lord , and he will take care of you (Psalm 55:22 NLT)

This is a pretty straightforward statement, similar to many other promises in the book of Psalms. Believing God is always in control means you can always believe He will take care of you.

However...

While we spout forth words that God will intervene on our behalf, our actions often speak of a very different belief. More often than not, we really depend on other people rather than our creator to take care of us. As a result, we often experience bitter disappointment.

As for my companion, he betrayed his friends; he broke his promises. His words are as smooth as butter, but in his heart is war. His words are as soothing as lotion, but underneath are daggers (Psalm 55:20 - 55:21 NLT)

Other people can never take care of us. Even those who claim to be friends will sometimes let us down. No one is more worthy of our trust than God. No one is more capable of taking care of our needs. Therefore, we should never look to anyone other than Him to be our provider and sustainer.
