“In God We Trust?”

SPEAKER: Troy Champ

Money acts like a god and promises power, protection, provision, and pleasure. No wonder we put our trust in the almighty dollar rather than the Almighty God. But James warns us, don’t trust anything more than we trust Jesus. Jesus knows we are all different and different people have different things competing for their trust.

Is there anything that you’re trusting more than Jesus? Is there anything you’ve put before Him? Is there a person? Is it your profession? Your talent? Your stuff? Ask God to search your soul and show you what’s in there. Maybe you’re having trouble trusting Jesus. Maybe you’re frustrated that you aren’t trusting him more than you are. Good news! You can increase your trust of Jesus – the more you grow, the more you trust. May you refuse to trust anything more than you trust the Almighty God.


Carve out time for reflection and ask yourself if there is anything you trust more than Jesus.
