God Is Trustworthy
"O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee." (Psalm 84:12)
"Come on, Danny. Jump in! I'll catch you!"
Danny listened as his dad called him to jump into the pool. It was a hot summer day, and Danny and his dad were spending an afternoon at the swimming pool. The only problem was that Danny didn't know how to swim. And even though his father promised to catch him, Danny was afraid to jump into the water.
Danny had a wonderful dad. His dad always made sure that he had clothes to wear and good food to eat. He played ball with Danny every day after school and helped him with his homework. He made sure Danny was warm enough when the weather turned cold and took him swimming in the summer when it was hot. Once when Danny was playing in the street, his dad saved his life by running and snatching Danny from the road just before a car hit him. But even though Danny's father loved him very much and was always there to take care of him, Danny did not trust his dad to catch him when he jumped into the water.
You might be just like Danny. Your Heavenly Father sacrificed His only Son so that you could have eternal life. He provides for all your needs, He blesses you everyday, and He answers your prayers. He's done all this for you, and yet you still might struggle with trusting Him with your daily problems and needs. When you go through difficult situations, God wants you to trust Him. You can trust Him because He is God: He knows all and rules over all. He is your strength and refuge. Psalm 62:8 says, "Trust in him at all times, ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us."
Trust God with all your problems because He is trustworthy.
» Am I looking at my circumstances rather than looking at God?
» Am I trusting in myself or someone else when I should be trusting God?
