You Can Trust God

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

One of the most important questions you will ever ask yourself is, “Who are you going to trust?” The answer to that question is the determining factor for many issues in life. Like, your happiness, your success, your friends, and a host of other things. 

I’m sorry to say that there is a lot of misplaced trust these days. Some put their trust in government. Not a good idea as its credibility is at an all-time low. Some put their trust in the media. Again, bad idea because it’s hard to separate “fake news” from “real” news. Some put their trust in the court of public opinion. If you do that, you’ll be changing your opinion well, every five to ten seconds. 

How about yourself? Is that a place to put your trust? I don’t think so. If you do, you put yourself at the behest of your changing moods. 

I contend the best place to put your trust is in God. The Psalmist had it right, “For the word of the Lord is right and true, and we can trust everything He does [Psalm 33.4 - emphasis mine].

When God says something, you can rely on its truthfulness. His words are never shaded, filtered, or diluted. He doesn’t tell you what you want to hear, but rather what you need to hear. It’s always trustworthy. And the best part about it is that His truth “will set you free!” [John 8.32].

Everything God says is true. Everything God does is right and good. You can trust God.

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God. Psalm 20.7
