In this world of selfishness, it is growing more and more difficult to trust others. People lie, cheat, steal, kill and do all kinds of immoral deeds just to satisfy their lustful desires, without any concern for the feelings of others. Is it any wonder that people don’t trust God? Unless a person knows Him pretty well why would they trust Him? That’s Satan’s plan. He doesn’t have to get us to rebel against God or do all those despicable things that so many others are doing. If he can weaken our trust in God he knows that eventually we will turn away from God. And that is more likely than you think. I grew up in church. I’ve seen it happen. It happened to me. We have to trust God. We must trust him.
Proverbs 3:5 says, Trust in the LORD with all your heart; and lean not on your own understanding.
How do we put our trust in God? Well, it’s easier said than done. Anyone who has ever been in a relationship of any kind knows that trust is usually not something that is just there. Trust has to be earned. You don’t trust someone who you don’t know. At least not completely. And that’s what we are talking about here. Complete and total trust in God.
Psalm 62:8 says, “Trust in him at all times; you people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us.”
Again, we must have complete and total trust in God. To answer the how, we must develop a close personal relationship with God. He will earn your trust as the relationship grows and soon you will be able to trust Him completely. Even when things aren’t going well. Now comes another question. How do we get to know God and build that relationship? The answer is simple. Through prayer and reading His word, the Bible.
Psalm 73:28 says, “But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all your works.
