Have you ever found yourself in the middle of a mess? So deep in the mess you can’t turn around and get out, and to far from the end to see any future resolve? Those moments are very hard to navigate. Maybe you are in the middle of marriage trouble. Or perhaps you are so stuck in debt that your life seems to be unraveling before your eyes. You’re stuck and you don’t know how to get out.
It’s during these “middle moments” that you should turn to the middle verse of the Bible. Let it saturate every fiber of your being.
Psalm 118:8 – It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man.
What a verse.
What a grand truth.
In your middle moments, put your confidence and trust back in Jesus. Don’t trust in your credit card, or the self-help book. Don’t look for three-steps out of your trauma, or six ways to step out of your situation; rather turn to Jesus. Trust in His guidance and strength. You will come out of your situation.
When you do, you will be leaning on the arm of Jesus – not man.
Song of Solomon 8:5 – Who is this that cometh up from the wilderness, leaning upon her beloved?
