Jeremiah 17: 5, 7, 9, 10 – “Thus says the LORD: ‘Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the LORD. Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, and whose hope is the LORD. The heart is deceitful above all things; and desperately wicked; who can know it? I, the LORD, search the heart, I test the mind, even to give every man according to his ways, according to the fruit of his doings.”‘ We cannot trust in both God and humankind; to turn one’s heart toward people is to turn away from God. One who trusts in God will not be free from trials and adversity, but God will bring guidance and blessing in and through those difficult times.
