It can be difficult putting your full trust in someone else, and giving your heart completely to them. However in order to be a Christian, you must give your heart to God and trust Him for everything.

You have nothing to fear if you trust God completely.

Sometimes we all need a little gentle reminder that no matter what, God is with us, always…

 

In Zephaniah 3:17, God reminds us that He is always here with us,

The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save; he will rejoice over you with gladness; he will quiet you by his love; he will exult over you with loud singing.

That said, it can still be hard at times to remember that God is with you, because things happen in life which can make it feel like God has deserted us, however this is not the case as God is there. It’s only through experiencing life’s events that we learn to trust God more, because God will “quiet you by his love” during your times of need, and will take care of you.

Trust God in every situation you face, because He is with you in always.

God has promised to guide us always. Do you believe that? Do you trust Him to guide you through life?

Psalm 139:9–11 (NIV)

If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast. If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me”

Let God guide you through each day, because He has promised to look after us, always.

When you seem to be facing one problem after another, and life generally just seems to be going from bad to worse for you, how many times have you said, or has someone said to you, that God wouldn’t give you more than He knows you an cope with?

I’ve said that to myself, and about myself, to other quite a lot in these last few months. I’ve said it a lot to other about myself recently, because rather than feel sorry for myself about having to deal with problem after problem for a number of years now, I know God is with me, and my family, and will get us through. After all a few years ago, I wouldn’t have through I’d have managed to cope with any more, but God never deserted me, instead He stayed with me, and guided me through each and every situation or problem that’s come my way.

God-trusts-me

Thank you God for trusting me with so much over these last number of years. Each and every problem has moulded me into the person I am today, a person whose faith in God is stronger than ever before!

How much does God trust you?

As the words of the song in the above video tell us, it’s all about trust sometimes isn’t it. Sometimes when life gets tough, we can wonder how we’ll get through, and that’s when it comes down to trust, because if we put our trust in God, He will give us the strength and direction we need to get through these days.

When we cannot see our way,
Let us trust and still obey:
He who bids us forward go
Cannot fail the way to show.

 

Sometimes when life seems to be going against us, we find it difficult to find the strength to face each day. Fortunately for us, God is able to provide that much needed strength, all we have to do is trust him and believe in him, and He will provide for us, because His strength is perfect.

Isaiah 41:10 – fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

 

This is one of my favourite songs because it reminds me always that everything I have and everything I am is all because of Christ, and Christ alone.

Is your trust firmly in Christ, and Christ alone?

Don’t put your trust in mere humans. They are as frail as breath. ~ Isaiah 2:22

The truth is we are mere humans in need of a Saviour to trust!

The truth is, God is ready and waiting for you to put your trust in Him…will you do it today?

trust

trust-in-handsTrust is something which I’ve found many people expect but sadly so few earn. I’ve found a number of times when I’ve trusted someone, that despite me never betraying their trust, they seem willing to betray my trust without any hesitation.

Thankfully not everyone is like that – I am confident that anyone who has confided in me, will never find I have betrayed them, as I believe if someone trusts enough in me not to betray their confidence, keeping that confidence is the least I can do to return that trust and belief.

I am just thankful that I know one person who I can trust with my life…God!

Why am I so confident that I can trust God with my life? Because God gave it to me!

trust-in-handsYesterday I spoke about the best way to discover whether you can trust someone or not (in the blog post Can I Trust You?). Today I want to consider trust from the opposite perspective. i.e. what it means to be trusted.

To be trusted is a greater compliment than being loved ~ George MacDonald

Love can be felt by one person for another, but it does not need to be reciprocated. For trust to be true, there must be mutual trust between two people, as if one does not keep that trust there is no trust. Therefore to know someone trust you completely shows just how highly they respect you as a person and confidant.

If/when you find someone you can truly trust, look after that friendship because it’s one in a million!
