The dictionary says this : trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
The fact is we can’t trust everybody. Nor can we trust everything. People will do us wrong. It’s happened. Ideas will get us on the wrong track. Not every good idea is a God idea.
So when it comes to trust how can we become more trusting and yet not be “hornswoggled” along the way?
God speaks to my heart: Trust in Me. Trust means your issues will be brought to Me first. I AM the Only One you can ultimately trust completely and without reservation. Trust Me for your friendships – I will give you godly fellowship. Trust Me for your plans – I will tell you what to do. Trust Me with your marriage – I will fulfill all your heart’s desires so that you won’t try to lean on one person too much. Trust Me with your children – My desires for them are higher than your desires. Trust Me with your prayers – I already heard your requests before you spoke them out loud. Trust Me – I AM your King, your Husband, your Savior, your Deliverer, your Redeemer and Friend. Whatever you lack in any area, I am the Filler of that lack. Whatever you don’t trust – I AM the trustworthy go-between for it all. Whatever you need – I AM your Provider.
God loves you and He’s for you. Trust Him. He won’t let you down. And while you learn to trust Him you will grow in faith and wisdom and power and strength for the next issues of trust that come your way. Your destiny is not to be a doubter but a truster, as you live in the Light of God’s Magnificent TRUST!
