    If you've been counting on humans all these while. Desist from doing that. I mean, never count wholly on any human. Rather, count wholly/only on God almighty. Because humans can fail/dissappoint you even when you least expect it from them. But on the other hand, God cannot fail you. For, he's too faithful to fail/disappoint anyone (Hebrews 11 : 11). As a matter of fact, he (God) has never failed those who were before you like Abraham, Moses, Joshua among others. And so, likewise he (God) can't fail you. Moreover, God is always ready to go extra mile just to prove his faithfulness unlike humans.
