Run With God, Not the Herd


4  Blessed is the man who makes
the LORD his trust,
who does not turn to the proud,
to those who go astray after a lie!

Psalm 40:4

It is tempting to run with the herd, with the boastful and prideful. Culture revolves around the idea of cool and sexy. The latest fashions and thoughts and sensual pleasures are in. The old and stodgy and traditional are out.

But those are fleeting things. Fashion tomorrow is different from fashion today. Things are cyclical. But God remains.

One will find no refuge from their sins by sticking with the arrogant. One will find no blessing for going astray and embracing the lie.

God is forever and those who make the Lord their trust will be blessed for eternity. Those who go astray, who want to be liked, or who are seeking shelter for their sins by allying with the world will ultimately be exposed.

We are all sinners. But we are not all blessed. Make the Lord your trust and your truth and go with God, not the herd of this world.
