What does it mean to trust? The word “Trust” Means: Firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing. Many Believe in God, at least intellectually. But, very few unreservedly and unconditionally trust God with their heart. Why? I think it is because humans are predisposed to a skeptical thinking process. I have found that most decide to consider trusting God, when they are staring into the face of crisis and trials which offer no other alternative but to trust God. The human mind seems bent toward the need for a proven track record before trusting. Think about it; it would be just silly to trust without evidence, right? It would be even sillier to take God at his word, right? And of course the silliest thing to do is to trust God without complete, concise, and clear explanations of everything in life, right?
What do you think: Can God be trusted? Better yet, can we trust Him without a complete, clear, and concise explanation of all that He is?
I believe we can learn to trust God unreservedly and unconditionally. Why? Because, I believe God’s word, his promises within His word, and the testimonies of others provide an answer to skepticism and many of life’s mysteries. If we let him we can learn to trust God as he walks with us through the trials and crises of life. In Psalm 22:4 Kind David said, “Our fathers trusted in You; They trusted, and You delivered them. They cried to You, and were delivered; They trusted in You, and were not ashamed.”
