Remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me [Isaiah 46:9 ESV]
When Isaiah wrote those words to the people of Israel, he was warning them against the temptation of following the gods of other nations, reminding them of the sovereignty of the One True God. The ancient world had gods that represented the things that our flesh craves, love, sex, money, power, prosperity, etc.
Modern society still holds these as virtues and offers them as substitutes for God. While perhaps pleasing in the moment, they are empty and they rob us of the joy we feel when we are right with the Lord.
What or whom do you trust? Are you trusting in money, or people, or even religion? If you trust in anything other than God, you're going to be let down, but "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'" [Hebrews 13:5 ESV]
