Something comes along to knock you off balance. Pull the rug out. Tip your apple cart. Fill-the-blank with your own cliche. But you know the feeling, right?
And, as it may seem, the creators of disequilibrium tend to bring a stationwagon load of their unexpected cousins along for the visit too. Before you know it you're on the existential elevator rapidly heading south.
"Whoa! Where have I put my trust? What have I allowed to become my security? Where has my dependence relocated all-the-while me unaware that it moved out?"
Where do I really put my trust? Or, more appropriately, who do I put my trust in?
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. Psalm 20:7
Do I put my trust in the created (myself & others) or in the Creator?
Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort? Galatians 3:3
"Oh, Lord my God, keep me from foolish, human dependence. May my trust be firmly, only in You."
