Why You Need to Trust
As the video says, you trust all the time without questioning or even thinking. You cannot live without trust. We trust that food will be at the grocery store when we go shopping. We trust the lights will turn on when we flip a switch. Trust get tricky though when the unexpected happens:
- A spouse dies
- You receive an unexpected diagnosis
- A co-worker steps over you for that promotion
- A flood, tornado or fire destroys your home
- Your best friend betrays you
- Your spouse is unfaithful
- You are part of or witness a horrific act of violence
These events cause us to lose trust in ourselves, in others, and worse, trust in God. To quote King Solomon again. He says, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (NASB)
We can’t possibly understand everything, especially when something terrible rocks our world.
Trust in these words from the apostle Paul as he says:
“In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor rulers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
I’ve written a trust prayer which is the basis of the new CD: Trust – A Meditation Experience. You can download the prayer for free along with the MP3 of Why Trust from the video above. Why Trust is Cut Number 1 from the Trust CD.
To experience a deep sense of trust in God – to trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5), join others who’ve developed that deep trust through the Trust Meditation. Click on the CD Cover to learn more:
