Placing Our Trust in the Right Place, Part 2

July 30, 2021

There is no escaping it: we will all be disappointed at times by politicians, teachers, bosses, and community leaders—people who hold the responsibility of directing us and promoting our best interests, but who turn out to be unable to carry it through. This psalmist admonishes us not to put our trust in human leaders. And then he draws our hearts to put our hope in the right place—in the Lord himself.

Hope in the Face of Suffering by Jeremy Marshall

Since being diagnosed with incurable cancer, Jeremy Marshall has been known for his ability to connect the difficulties that Christians face in this life with the deep-seated joy that is found in knowing the Lord Jesus. The devotional Hope in the Face of Suffering offers twenty inspirational messages for tough times. He holds out the message of hope in the Bible—the medicine cabinet where we can find treatment for our suffering—and meditates on God's promises, which are like a rock upon which we can stand secure.

About Encounter the Truth

Through faithful teaching of the Scriptures, we seek to facilitate encounters with the truth of God’s Word – and ultimately, with the Lord Jesus Christ, who is the Truth that came down from heaven. Our prayer is that those who do not yet know Jesus will come to a saving knowledge of the truth, that believers will be grounded in the truth, and that local churches will be encouraged in their witness to the truth.
