Someone once noted that Psalm 118:8 is the verse that is located in the exact middle of the Bible. If this is indeed correct, perhaps it is important to examine this verse for the important message it contains—“It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans.”
How true! Our politicians are flawed human beings who, no matter how well-intentioned they might be, will make mistakes. No matter how much your family and friends love you, they are not perfect; they will sometimes disappoint you and will occasionally let you down. The only One you can trust completely and perfectly is the Lord.
This theme is found throughout the Bible. It is little wonder that a central message of Scripture is that we are to trust in the Lord.
“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.”—Psalm 20:7.
