It’s a hard word to swallow isn’t it? Even if we believe we are trusting are we really? It’s hard when we live in a society where we don’t know who is lying to us and who isn’t. We live where even your own family members, kids, or parents will lie to you. Maybe it’s just a small lie to protect you or to help your imagination as a child. Maybe it’s a big lie that will devastate you at some point and time. A lie is a lie. So how can we trust? How can we learn to believe?
The bigger question is how do we Trust someone we can’t see? How do we trust someone who isn’t right there and who others even say don’t exist? How do we give our all and everything into the hands that are not right in front of us?
Faith. Faith guides us. Faith if you sit quietly with it can give you the answers you are seeking. Faith in the Lord is all that we have that is true in this world. The Lord is not a controlling or conniving Lord. Really study the bible and read between the lines. Think as a loving parent and through the eyes of love and you will see that He is the one you can fully trust. He is true to His word every time and all the time. He shows mercy when it is called for and yes He destroys when it is called for. He never lies about it. He doesn’t make up stories about anything. Everything He is and is to become is right there is His word.
So tell me, Can you trust Him? Will you trust Him?
Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me.
Those who know your name trust in you, for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you.
Give us the strength to move through this world today where there is nothing around us we can seem to trust. Give us strength to continue through your word and knowledge and comfort that we can trust you and only you as our world falls apart around us. Lord we rebuke the Devil and his lies against your kingdom and our world. We pray that you give those that lead us whether in the church or the government the wisdom and the honesty to relay to us how things need to be going in this crazy mixed up world. Lead us through the turmoil and into your house, Lord. Thank you for another beautiful day to reach out to your children, Lord. Thank you for your word and your love. Amen
