IN GOD WE CAN TRUST
If we are honest with ourselves, there are very few people we can trust. Trust means to rely on someone, have confidence in them, and put our hope in them. But because we are all human, we do make mistakes where we lose trust in others and they lose trust in us. This could make us crazy if we let it. Losing trust in someone will make us feel alone, abandoned and forsaken. That is why we need to trust only in God. We can have hope in Him knowing He will always be with us and always keep His promises.
Hebrews 10:23 “Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we come to You today with hope and trust knowing You are who You say You are. We know others don’t always do what they should do and, at times, we don’t either. Help us today to remember to trust only in You and to encourage others to do the same. Trusting in You will give us peace, put joy in our hearts and allow us to love others as You have called us to do. Thank You Lord for the strength You give us to trust only You in all things. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God will never go back on His word.
Trust God to keep His promises.
We can put our hope and trust in God every day knowing that He will follow through with what He has promised us.
God will always be with us and He will always be honest with us.
When others fail us, we can know God will never fail nor forsake us.
1 Chronicles 28:20a “Then David continued, “Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don’t be afraid or discouraged, for the LORD God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.” (NLT)
