This is a Word for a friend. Someone needs to hear this today.
Last year, life went crazy and a little sideways. It’s a long story. Nothing was as it seemed. Everything seemed swirly.
Thankfully God allowed the “crazy” to happen at the perfect time. I was backed into a corner. I could not react the way I wanted to…God knew.
At the time I prayed and I told God, “I cannot trust this person.”
We have all had situations come up when we cannot trust the people closest to us. When trust is broken…it devastates.
In that moment, when I felt I hadn’t been hearing from God; in that moment when I felt my emotions were overwhelming His voice I heard, “You don’t have to.” Relief flooded me. I don’t have to trust this person…a weight lifted. Then God said, “Trust ME.”
Like I have so many times in my life, I trusted Him. I knew that I could believe what He said to me. He is a good Father. His plans are good. I can trust Him.
There will always be times in our lives when people fail us. Sometimes they are failing us for the first time but sometimes they are failing us for the fourth time. You don’t have to trust them, but trust Him.
When He says, “I have a plan.” You can trust Him. When He says, “I know how much this hurts.” You can trust Him. When He says, “You are going to make it through this.” You can trust Him. He keeps His words. He always does. So when He says, “Trust Me” You can trust Him. He LOVES you. He LOVES your children even more than you do. He is for you and not against you. He is for your relationships, your marriage, your parenting, your ministry…He is for you.
When you cannot trust anyone else, trust Him.
