Trust in the Lord

"Come and see me tomorrow, I will give you one million naira to start your business" Emeka prostrated "Thank you uncle, God bless you, may your pocket never run dry"
Emeka walked with a bounce in his steps as he left his uncle's house. He got home and told his wife, she was overjoyed; they danced and laughed. Relief had finally come, Emeka couldn't wait till the morning.
Around 9am, Emeka set off to his uncle's house. As he approached the house, he started seeing lots of cars, guests were arriving, he was wondering if his uncle was throwing a party but it was too early in the morning.
As he stepped in the house, he saw people crying and rolling on the floor. "Can somebody please tell me what is going on?". "Your uncle died around 8:30am this morning, he was jogging when he suddenly slumped and died".
Emeka could not believe what he was hearing, he felt like the world had come to an end, how would he survive from now on? What should Emeka do?
The bible says in Jeremiah 17:5 (NLT) This is what the LORD says: "Cursed are those who put their trust in mere humans, who rely on human strength and turn their hearts away from the LORD.
As long as your trust is in man, God will make sure that you are disappointed every time but if you put your hope in God. You will never be put to shame.
This is what the bible says about those who out their trust in Him. Jeremiah 17:7 (NLT) But blessed are those who trust in the LORD and have made the LORD their hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank, with roots that reach deep into the water. Such trees are not bothered by the heat or worried by long months of drought. Their leaves stay green, and they never stop producing fruit.
May all our dependence on men perish so that we can constantly put our trust in God.  Amen
