Truer words never spoken

Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the LORD. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. "Blessed is the man who trusts in the LORD, whose trust is the LORD. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit." (Jer 17:5-8)

My fervent desire is that God will sow that trust for Him in me this year, that I place no trust in man (especially myself) and place all my trust in Him.

That is certainly a worthy desire.

I pray that He will work that trust in you as much as is possible to work in sinner.
