You must admit, this world has given us so many reasons not to trust anyone. This is why we can’t let our children out of the house without adult supervision, and this is why we have a hard time trusting co-workers and even friends we have just met. We even sometimes can’t trust our significant other who we’ve been with for years!
It takes time to trust, right? They have to prove to us that they are worthy of our trust.
Well something that I am learning in my adulthood is that I want to see the very best in people but sometimes that gets tainted because my husband is in the police force and he sees all of the bad that goes on behind closed doors and then of course I hear about it.
He’s constantly telling me to trust no one and to be super careful. To him if I don’t lock the door behind me when I go and walk the dog, all hell is about to break loose! LOL
I guess I just don’t like to think someone is going to come into my house and steel all my precious possessions. But in all actuality that can absolutely happen.
It’s just like how God sees the best in His children. Even though there are so many flaws in us as humans, God chooses to see the best.
God knows I am no angel so I am so thankful for this unconditional love I get from Him despite the fact that I fail Him on the daily.
Ok, kind of went off track. Let’s get back to what we were talking about.
WE CAN TRUST GOD!!!! End of story period.
He’s proven time and time again that we can trust Him. Want to know how I know?
Psalm 9:10 speaks to the core of trusting in God: “And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.”
Trusting God is first a matter of knowing His true divine character and faithfulness. If we don’t allow God’s character and faithfulness to become a transformative reality of our heart, we will never bear the fruit of trust. We won’t truly be able to understand trust and what it can do for our hearts and souls.
So in order to begin a lifestyle of trust in areas in which we have taken control for ourselves, we must begin by asking God for a fresh revelation of His character and faithfulness.
We must see God for who He really is and reflect on His faithfulness as demonstrated in Scripture, in the lives of other believers, and of course in our own lives! We need to allow these revelations to transform our hearts desires and bear the fruit of trust.
People may never fully earn our trust but GOD has more than earned our trust.
I know for me God has always came through in my times of desperation, sorrow and madness.
God has a beautiful way of sending me reminders to let go and let Him do His work as my Heavenly Father.
I am so thankful for the endless love God has for me. A love that will never be fathomed but by God Himself.
I want to leave you today with some “stand firm” scripture by our humble God Himself:
“God is not man, that he should lie, or a son of man, that he should change his mind. Has he said, and will he not do it? Or has he spoken, and will he not fulfill it?” Numbers 23:19
“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.” Nahum 1:7
“Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.”Hebrews 13:8
