When we don’t know why… We must trust God who knows why…
One verse comes to mind…
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding”.
What does it mean to trust?
It’s easy to trust someone who is trustworthy and has never broken trust with you.
Trust is the foundation of any healthy relationship. Without trust there is nothing to build upon. In business, in marriage and In any relationship “trust is a must”. How many times do we reassure each other by saying, “just trust me”. It’s our way of saying that we are trustworthy. I believe to trust God is quite simple as a child but can become more difficult as we experience life. Many of us have trust issues because we find ourselves in situations that we cannot understand. Our trust in a God that we cannot see may be at the center of our inability to trust Him. We think if we could see Him we could easily trust Him. And yet if God was visible there would be no need to Trust.
We’re a lot like the children of Israel going in circles because we continue to believe that if God was present then we could trust Him. In the place of God they built golden calves to worship because they wanted to SEE the God they worshipped. They wandered in the wilderness 40 years because they could not trust a God they could not see.
God kept telling them to “trust Him”.
We do the same….go in circles because we don’t understand why. We get stuck in the whys of life instead of trusting God, we accuse God and we demand a better life….

These are the difficulties of life that put our trust in God to the test….
We want answers to the problems we face and the questions we have….
God says “trust me”. I AM trustworthy.
Do not lean on your own understanding.
Can I really trust God with my biggest problem?
Yes, because God is all knowing and He is trustworthy…
Trust says God is with us
Trust says God is for us!
