Trust is confidence anchored in faith. This five-letter and one syllable word bring both positive and negative results. Experiencing the trustworthiness of another person we discover integrity. A breach of trust causes emotional, mental and spiritual harm.
The good news is trusting in God with the heart unveils a powerful strength beyond the ordinary. It’s with God we overcome the damage caused by Adam and Eve’s disobedience. In fact, our faith in Christ redeems us and God welcomes us in His kingdom.
Remember, without Christ, God is unavailable, and it’s impossible to turn away from sin (John 14:6).
In Proverbs 3:5, God invites us to trust Him. Here He commands us to place our wills in His hands. The Lord instructs us to humble ourselves through reliance on Him.
This means spending private time in prayer and meditation. It’s important to realize, God watches the way we approach Him, and it’s unwise to slight our personal obligation with Him. Because filling the spiritual void caused by sin comes from Jesus.
One of the greatest demonstration of devotion is trust. For example, when we find ourselves in distress over life’s terms and exert ourselves in Christian principles then this shows God our trust. Even though it may take time for God to respond our willingness to seek Him isn’t unnoticed. Our Father hears our petitions.
Another way of trusting God is taking spiritual actions and leaving the results for Christ to work out. Dependence on Christ in every circumstance of life pleases God. This works and brings an inner peace unlike any other. Given these points, it’s easy to understand Jesus gives serenity in midst of trouble.
Each of our experience with faith proves Christ never fails us. The moment we surrender our lives over to His care our trust grows. A point often overlooked is the strength Christian trust has in overcoming adversity. As the result of applying this crucial spiritual attribute our ability to rejoice in tribulations increases.
As shown above, trust in God and unveil the power of Christ!
