One of the common themes throughout the Psalms encourages God’s people to seek refuge and trust in Him. Notice the thought expressed in Psalm 118, “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.”
When we trust in ourselves, we can easily become frustrated with our lack of abilities.
When we trust in others, we often become disillusioned to the role of humanity.
Overall, leaders must set the example of trust and dependence upon God. We must learn to trust with all our heart and seek refuge in Him, rather than ourselves or others.
