I was reading Proverbs: 3:5-6 the other day about trusting the Lord with all your heart. I have to admit that there are times when I really don’t trust God--- and I had to ask myself why? Why does it seem like I can trust God with some parts of my life and not others? Do I trust him only when my story has a happy ending? When I’m living a pain free life? Or can I still trust him when the bottom drops out--- if you’ve ever asked those questions then consider this: Maybe the reason we don’t trust God is that we look at him thru the lens of all the earthly relationships that have disappointed us and broken our hearts. Then we generalize all those impressions onto our relationship with God.
The truth is we don’t trust God because we don’t understand unfailing love. God’s always got our back---especially when the bottom drops out. His word says he will never leave us or forsake us-- and his unfailing love for us will never be shaken. So how about you---what’s standing in the way of your trusting God with all your heart?
