Trusting Who?

Proverbs 30:1-9

The TV commercials for the investment firm E. F. Hutton started and ended with the line, “When E. F. Hutton talks, people listen.” They created humorous circumstances in restaurants or business settings where the Hutton agent would start to speak and everyone else in the room would fall silent, and strain to hear what the agent had to say. They built a corporate name around the investors’ confidence in their trustworthiness as advisors, and on their corporate integrity to speak the truth.

In Proverbs 30, the writer of this proverb gives a much more expansive picture of God’s reliability and integrity for those who trust Him. God’s words are flawless and not to be added to by men. This is not a rigid legalism. Instead, it is the foundation for a level of trust in God that allows His children to call on Him as the ultimate source of protection and refuge in the times of storm. It almost sounds like the writer is saying, “I don’t know much, but I know the One who knows my every need, and I choose daily to count on Him to watch over me with His matchless grace and mercy.”
