Dependence on man brings disappointment. It is not inevitable for us to be disappointed when we trust people. We put some expectation. Sometimes, we are just disappointed. This is actually a normal thing. It is natural. After all, we also get disappointed with ourselves, sometimes. It is because we are not perfect. Imperfection means that somehow we are bound to make an error because we are limited in our knowledge. That is why giving our foremost trust and dependence to man is futility. To expect people to bring us utmost comfort, security, and success, or even to expect our own self to do that would lead us to disappointment.
Dependence on God is the wisest decision to make. It is not just good to decide to depend on God. It is the best thing to do. It is the wisest decision to make. Those who depend on God are called blessed because they live a blessed life! Listen to the voice of God ringing in this verse, “Thus says the LORD: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” – Jeremiah 17:5-8. He who depends on God and trust in Him, there shall be abundance, shelter, security, provision, and goodness in his dwelling. Indeed, our God is our help and our shield when we depend on Him.
