Psalm 20:7-8: “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. They are brought to their knees and fall, but we rise up and stand firm.”
People put their trust in various things, people, circumstances and etc. Christians trust in Jesus. Those that put their trust in material things and sinful people (it does not matter how powerful and influential these are) are finally disappointed and find that they are standing on a shaky foundation. On the other hand, those who trust in God stand on a firm foundation and get out of all their troubles stronger and happier. I do not mean to say you never feel bad or even discouraged for a while. Emotions have nothing to do with trust. You experience troubles, but you look at those from a different perspective. God is your protection. Circumstances and people cannot destroy you. Blessed be His holy name.
