Discussion for Psalms 118:8

  • Reeise on Psalms 118:8
    With all the political strife today, I often wonder why some of those who are Christians put all their trust in the word of one man or the other. Have they forgotten that we should trust God not man according to scripture? If we did that, families and people would not be as divided as they are. I pray that God will heal our nation and that we are all reminded to put our faith in our Father God and not in any president or other political leader.

    To God be the glory. I will praise him now while I 'm still alive
  • Brianna on Psalms 118:8
    Jehovah God is the only being that will be there for you unconditionally. We can build trust in Him by reading the Bible, with a view to learning more about our creator. As we see too often people will let you down. As Lillian said, sometimes they just lack the means. However, God is all powerful and lacks nothing.
  • Lilian on Psalms 118:8
    Man may fail to stand by you because he lacks the means. He may not know what is best for you. Trusting in the Lord is the best thing one can ever do. He is an ever present help in trouble and own everything. He cannot disappoint you. trust him and he will see you through
  • Lydia Walker on Psalms 118:8
    I'm reminded of this scripture in every challenge. Nowhere in the Bible are we told to take our burdens to our Earthly friends. My faith takes on another layer of trust with every circumstance. I talk to the Lord all through the day. Sleep at night? Always. If I awake I "count my blessings instead of sheep" and, as the dated song says, "I fall asleep counting my blessings." As another old song says, "I will trust in the Lord 'til I die." No friend on this planet could ever be as available, or wise as He.
  • Diana on Psalms 118:8
    The entire Bible has good news for us - but this verse gives us assurance and reassurance that we need to put our trust only on our Lord and Saviour
  • Manuela Bravo on Psalms 118:8

    Shalôm!!!!!
  • Shirley on Psalms 118:8
    as people in our lives change and situations are
    different, this verse keeps me confident on who we should trust in.
