Commending our Confidence

"It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man… The Stone which the builders refused is become the head Stone of the corner" (Psalm 118:8,22).  "The fear of man bringeth a snare: but whoso putteth his trust in the LORD shall be safe" (Proverbs 29:25).  "Behold, such is our expectation… How shall we escape?" (Isaiah 20:6).  "I commend you to God, and to the Word of His grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified" (Acts 20:32). 

It's better to trust in the Lord,
Than man who is often unwise. 
Let truth in God's Word be explored,
Compared to man's infamous lies. 

The Lord is our Head Corner Stone,
Yet He was despised and rejected.
How wisely we trust God alone,
Since failure from man is expected!

The fear of mere man brings a snare,
But God gives our heart confidence,
As we cast on Him all our care
And trust in our Savior's Defense. 

Our confidence, Lord, is in You,
Commending our souls to Your love.   
The Word of Your grace is found true
And settled forever above.
