Expect but not that High!!!

High expectations of people will lead to disappointments. We fail to realize that human beings are not perfect and many of them are carrying pain. Pain that is suppressed and for some it's right there on the surface. We tend to give our all and trust men with our all; the pain felt as a consequence of doing such should teach us that men will fail us and continue to fail us.

From my experiences, I have seen the effects of trusting totally in men and giving my all to friendships and relationships that only gave them ammunition to destroy me. It is FOOLISH to trust man to such an extent. Psalm 118:8 states It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man. The refuge of the Lord is a safe place. The Lord will make promises, commitment and covenants and KEEP THEM. Man can make promises even in the name of the Lord and break them all.

Jeremiah 17:5 Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man     and makes flesh his strength,[a]     whose heart turns away from the Lord. Sometimes we put so much into men that we compromise the TRUTH and our hearts slips away from the commandments of God. Foolishly, we give strength to our flesh and neglect to trust the Lord with ALL our hearts. For the strength of the flesh is the weakness of the spirit.

I had an encounter sometime where by I found myself connected to an individual. Our friendship grew and my goodness I thought it was out of this world. But I compromised my beliefs and my heart towards God wasn't the same, even though I did the same things but it was compromised. I was BROKEN eventually. The deception and manipulation of that relationship BROKE me to pieces. I trusted this person with my life and risked so much for that relationship. BUT GOD...He is our refuge and strength and our very present help in times of trouble. I was in TROUBLE!!

Don't get me wrong, there are relationships that God will set up but while God may set us up with some people and form relationships, we still cannot depend solely on these people. Trust in the Lord, it's a safe place.
