Psalm of the Day: Psalm 118:8-9

“Better to take refuge in the Lord than to put one’s trust in mortals;
Better to take refuge in the Lord than to put one’s trust in princes.” –Psalm 118:8-9.


There is (thankfully) no gray area here. The psalmist wisely states that it is better for us to take refuge (trust) in the Lord than in our fellow man. Friends, family and colleagues will offer advice but ultimately, it is only God Who knows for sure what’s best. It is only God Who can see the beginning from the end; and the end from the beginning. Seeking wise (Godly) counsel is certainly helpful at times, but always seek the will of God for final say.

[Read and meditate on this Psalm today. Trust God with whatever direction He provides you.]
