I read a poem yesterday that made the statement (paraphrase); when you finally realize that god cannot be trusted….
I couldn’t focus on any other part of the poem. I thought and thought about that statement.
Is that even possible? (No, not that I thought and thought. The statement, wise guy.)
You can learn that a dog can’t be trusted because he has bitten many times.
A child may not be trusted, because he lies, and disobeys.
A spouse may betray you, and you may find that untrustworthy.
But, what does it mean when one trusts God?
My understanding is that you give up your rights to yourself, your way, your plans, and say, “I trust You with my life. It is Yours.”
Now, if things in your life get rocky, or scary, or very, very uncomfortable, do you say, ” Well, obviously God can’t be trusted”?
What is trust? It means to place your life in the care of another.
God is not a human.
He doesn’t make human errors.
When things don’t go the way you want, we’ll, that’s exactly right. The way YOU want.
When you trust God, you tell Him,
“Whatever You want!”
You don’t know what the outcome will be.
Now, you can say,”I don’t trust God,” or “I won’t trust God,” but you can’t say He cannot be trusted because you haven’t trusted Him.
That’s what makes this born again thing so difficult for most people.
” You mean, You make all the decisions?”
Not for the faint of heart.
Faith is Trust.
You don’t know what God will bring, but you know, He is good.
