For this cause I also suffer these things. Yet I am not ashamed, for I know him whom I have believed, and I am persuaded that he is able to guard that which I have committed to him against that day.
2 Timothy 1:12
I’ve been thinking about trust a lot lately. It all started when someone who should trust me and knows they can trust me, didn’t really act like they did. Their actions stemmed from their own anxiety and confusion. I get that. But it still hurt.
The following day I was still thinking about the conversation, i.e. feeling a bit sorry for myself, when all of a sudden God’s voice whispered in my ear, “I know how you feel and it doesn’t feel very good, does it?”
Wow! Talk about a wake-up call! Here I was feeling a bit rejected only to be reminded of how many times I’ve done the very same thing to God…how many, many times I’ve ‘told’ God I don’t trust Him even though I claim to know I can.
Faith and obedience to God…it’s a trust thing. It’s a ‘trust thing’ with the only one who is truly worthy and deserving of our trust. Our Savior.
Pray: Jesus, take away every doubt, fear, and anxious moment I have. Give me a heart, soul, and mind that trusts in You completely because I know I can. Just give me what I need to make it happen. In your name I pray, Amen.
