Read Psalm 118:5-9
5 In my distress I called to the Lord;
he answered me and set me free.
6 The Lord is with me, I will not be afraid;
what can anyone do to me?
7 It is the Lord who helps me,
and I will see my enemies defeated.
8 It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on human beings.
9 It is better to trust in the Lord
than to depend on human leaders.
The end of this Psalm is a celebration of victory - it would have been prayed by Jesus and his disciples during the final week of his life.
Jesus death on the cross - his obedience to God's call - indicates complete trust in God for justice.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to depend on human beings.
Lord help me to trust in you 100%; to find my identity and my joy in you. So that I would be a blessing to others.
