Just Trust


I wish I had a dollar bill for every time I’ve heard someone say “Just trust God.” It sounds so simple, doesn’t it? But, exercising that trust can be a challenge. I dare say it takes courage to trust in a God we cannot see, hear or touch. If you find it difficult to trust people you can see, how do you learn to trust a God you can’t see? Blessed are they who have not seen and yet have believed, the Bible says. Trusting is believing, and believing is trusting. But, why is trusting so hard? I’m afraid I don’t have an answer except to say that I think it has to do with our past experiences. Maybe someone has betrayed our trust. We are afraid it will happen again, and so we protect ourselves emotionally lest we get hurt again. I think this is only part of our human nature. You might even say it’s an emotional survival tactic. When I feel betrayed I find I pray more, and then I take baby steps towards trust again, whether it’s with other human beings or developing a deeper trust in God. God knows our needs, our fears, our weaknesses, and the good news is He loves us anyway!
