September 3, 2009, "Confidence"

Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Criswell

"Praise the Lord! Praise the Lord, I tell myself. I will praise the Lord as long as I live. I will sing praises to my God even with my dying breath. Don't put your confidence in powerful people; there is no help for you there. When their breathing stops, they return to the earth, and in a moment all their plans come to an end."
~ Psalm 146 ~ (Excerpt from Psalm 146:1-4)

What a reminder just in these few verses of why we don't place confidence in people no matter how 'powerful' we think they are. For they also 'return to the earth'. Even though it is something that I know, to be reminded of it is like a bucket of water being splashed over my head on an unbearably hot day.

May we be refreshed today as we are reminded of His great provision over our lives. We must choose to place our confidence in Him and Who He is! He is The Great I Am! He Alone is so incredibly awesome to try to imagine!

I pray you find yourself encouraged in Who He is. As you do so, may you be swept away in the river of constant joy and abundant life!
