“Do I Trust God?”
We ended up in a very interesting discussion in my Wednesday Night group. We were talking about cheating vs trusting. When someone cheats they become a person no one can trust. We want to be people others can trust. So I asked them a question about who they trust. I got all sorts of comments about friends and family members, but there were 2 obvious omissions from the list. First was parents and second was God. So I decided to poke at the subject of do they trust their parents and God. I must say the comments really took me off guard. And perhaps it has opened up a window into understanding this next generation. They struggle to trust their parents and they struggle to trust God. Because of this they end up trusting people who quite often do not care about them and their life. And then they follow the wrong people down dangerous roads.
So I wondered how many of you struggling with trusting God? You listen to other things and value them more than God. You don’t trust Him. Perhaps that is because you think God has been untrustworthy. You have gone through hardship and you wondered where God was. Or maybe you have prayed and prayed and your prayer went unanswered.
You may think these are good reasons not to trust God, but I would contend there is no one else to trust with your life. Somewhere along the road he have hit a detour. We think God is supposed to do everything we want. If He did He wouldn’t be God – we would! Somewhere we think the pain and suffering in the world is tied to God and we forget our sin brought all the pain and suffering into God’s perfect creation. So we blame God for being untrustworthy when He has been consistent. He has been the only one to trust. He has never changed. He created us, loved us, saved us and did it all when we were enemies with Him.
There is no one else to trust.
So consider today whom you trust. As for me I choose to trust God because He is the only one who is trustworthy.
