Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Put no more confidence in mortals. What are they worth? Stop trusting in mere humans, who have but a breath in their nostrils. Why hold them in esteem? People are like a vapor, their days like a shadow that disappears. Don’t put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there."This is what the LORD says: Cursed is the person who trusts humans, who makes flesh and blood his strength and whose heart turns away from the LORD. It is better to depend on the LORD than to trust mortals. How blessed is that strong person who places his trust in the LORD, and who has not acknowledged the proud nor resorted to lies. Don't be afraid of people. They can kill you, but they cannot harm your soul. Instead, you should fear God who can destroy both your body and your soul in hell. I need to fear the Lord more than just the blind allegiance of pleasing people.

Meditate Is. 51:12
