T is for Trust

Trust is another word for faith, and Father God says that it is impossible to please Him without faith in Him. So, I have engaged in "faith-building exercises" in the past, and been harangued about my lack of faith at times. But I have also known those who trusted people and things that were totally untrustworthy. Where's the balance? How do we not get off track?

First, we can't trust our own faith. It can be affected by our emotional swings, by false information, by the winning influence of others. Trust can be given to us supernaturally as a gift from Father for a special need, but mostly it is the result of knowing the nature of what or whom we are trusting. For reaching a high shelf, I reasonably trust a step stool more than a rocking chair to stand on.

Consider the nature and character of Father God. He loves us so much that He paid the price of Jesus' death and resurrection to bring us into relationship with Him. How can I not trust Him to take me through the rest of my life? He bought my healing at a tremendous price. How can I not trust Him to make it manifest in my body?

That's the key. It's not how much we trust. It's whom we trust.

I bless you today to recognize who Father God is in your situation and to know how much you can trust Him.
