When things go wrong in your life, do you look to the world’s methods of solving problems before going to God? Do you put more trust in the institutions of this world’s system than you do the Word of God? As Christians, we must put our hope and faith in God’s way of doing things. This type of trust only develops by cultivating your relationship with Him.
How would you feel if you had a way to help someone you loved but you were the last person they turned to? That could be hurtful because you never want to be someone’s last resort, particularly if you have a relationship with them and they know you well. Likewise, God does not want you to choose Him after everything else you have tried has failed. As your heavenly Father, He wants to be the one you come to first.
