We trust people and things that have proven to be reliable. We trust that the water from the tap is pure. We trust that the chair that held us yesterday will do so today. We don’t usually think about those things, or make a conscious decision to trust. We’ve simply learned from experience that they can be trusted.
Over time we’ve come to know that particular people are trustworthy. Experience has taught us that we can count on them. They do what they promise. They’ve earned our trust.
“Trust in the Lord…” Solomon advised, (Prov. 3:5), and because he knew the damage that doubt can do, he added “…with all your heart.
Throughout Scripture, throughout history…and in personal experience, God has shown Himself to be trustworthy.
Dependable…and abundantly willing to do what He has promised. In whatever this day may bring, you are not alone. “Trust in the Lord.”
Lord, please fill me with a sense of your faithfulness. Amen.
