Not many people enjoy going to the doctor, but according to Reuters, in 1994, one London accountant took that to an extreme. The sixty-three-year-old man knew he needed bladder surgery but he could not overcome his fear of doctors and hospitals. So he self-reliantly did what had to be done: He tried to perform the surgery on himself. Tragically he got an infection from the self-surgery and later died. The coroner said, “Unfortunately, this man’s drastic remedy went wrong. A simple operation would have solved the problem.”
Just as this man didn’t trust doctors or hospitals, many today do not trust God, or at least, the act like they do not trust God. But Solomon declared, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths” (Pro. 3:5-6). This wise king also said, “He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, But whoever walks wisely will be delivered” (Pro. 28:26).
If we fail to trust God – putting more trust in ourselves, then we are sure to do ourselves great harm – even spiritual death. Beloved let us place our unwavering faith, hope, obedience and trust in the Almighty God.
Think About It!
Have A Great Day!
