Scripture: Jer 9:4
“Everyone has to be on guard against his friend. Don’t trust any brother, for every brother will certainly deceive, and every friend spread slander.”
Trust is a topic we are all familiar with. Eventually, you will learn about it the hard way. There is nothing so painful as broken trust. It cuts deeper than a knife and the effects thereof is felt long after it has happened.
The Bible warns us to be on guard and not to trust any person, even against your own blood. That betrayal can leave you devastated and break a bond forever.
We put a high price on trust, and it is a good thing. When trust is broken nothing can really heal it again. If you find yourself in a situation in that place where your trust is broken, it is better to walk away. Don’t act in sin or wrath, guard your own heart. Your heart is the most expensive organ you have and more valuable than deceit or friendship, even loyalty. Don’t give it away. Be on your guard. Be clever.
Father, I pray for wisdom today. Father, you know my worries and concerns regarding the situation I face today. Reveal to me the truth so that no deceit will wound me or leave me scared. Father, I don’t want to be foolish. Give me insight and wisdom to do the right thing. Speak through your word the right way to walk and strengthen me.
Everything within me says to be careful, be on the guard. I need your applied wisdom. Help me hold my tongue and act in love. Open my eyes to see the truth and remove any obstacle that wants to hinder me. Your truth will set me free.
I come against any deceit and lies; it has no hold over me. I declare open heaven in my mind, heart, and tongue.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
