a: dependence on something future or contingent : hope
As Christians, many times we like to talk about our trust in God. “I trust God to heal me.” “I trust that God will provide.” “I trust that God will always be there for me.” Do you really trust that He is there for you?
When you trust someone or something, you have to be assured of the ability that you are trusting in.
In this day and time, God is the only “assured” person to trust.
Micah 7:5-7 says, “Trust ye not in a friend, put ye not confidence in a guide: keep the doors of thy mouth from her that lieth in thy bosom. For the son dishonoureth the father, the daughter riseth up against her mother, the daughter in law against her mother in law; a man’s enemies are the men of his own house. Therefore I will look unto the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation: my God will hear me.”
There are many people, especially women, who are dealing with trust issues in their life. Some of these issues are very serious and stem from childhood. Whether it involves parents, or other family members, or family friends as a child, or issues with a spouse, an authority figure, or whomever is in our lives. Trust is a big part of our everyday being.
Some women have been hurt or harmed by men in their life and have trouble trusting their spouse to be there for them or to take care of them. Maybe they have been deceived by an affair or lied to about something else and fear that every man figure in their life is going to treat them with the same disappointment and disrespect.
There are many other issues involving trust, but you know in your heart what it could be. I want you to be ASSURED that you will never have to doubt our Heavenly Father. He is a friend that sticks closer than a brother. He can be trusted to take you in His arms and heal and provide and be there EVERY TIME you call. Our God will hear you!
