How hard is it for you to trust? Do you trust inherently? Or do you wait until you get to know someone to trust them? How much do you trust God? Do you trust him at all times? Do you trust God to give you the strength you need during your toughest situations?
Trusting can be hard to do. Especially in today’s world of half-truths, false profiles, and shysters attempting to connive you out of your money. We are wary. We are guarded. We often look for proof of trustworthiness. Finding that proof can be difficult.
Let’s circle back to the question of whether we trust God or not. We have been told of numerous promises made by God. We may have read them ourselves. Do we trust them? Do we trust them all? Do we pray the promises? Do we count on them?
Paul says that God will give us strength until the very end. Do we believe that? Do you notice why? So we may be blameless when Christ returns. We are given strength to stand against evil. We are given strength to carry out God’s plan. We are given strength to serve our community. We are given strength to tell others about Jesus.
Notice Paul states God is faithful. We must understand that he is indeed faithful if we are going to trust him. Knowing God is faithful is the basis for beginning to trust him. God is faithful, even when we are not. As we understand God’s faithfulness, our trust in him increases.
I pray we all trust God. I pray we know that he will give us the strength we need. I pray one of us knows God is faithful and return his faithfulness with our own faithfulness. Trust God. Ask him to give you strength. Ask God to reveal his trustworthiness. Pray the promises of God. Put your faith in God.
1 Corinthians 1:8-9 He will also strengthen you to the end, so that you may be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
