The other day, I was talking with someone and we were on the subject of trust and I was telling them how difficult it has been for me to trust someone, due to my past. When a person has had people in their lives let them down and not hold true to their promises; then as that continues through life; then it becomes that much more difficult to trust anyone in the future.
One thing God showed me; was that I didn’t have to trust anyone but Him. In fact, in Proverbs 3:5, 6, it says… “Trust the Lord completely; don’t ever trust yourself. In everything you do, put God first, and he will direct you and crown your efforts with success.”
Isn’t it amazing; the effort that is put forth, to please others. Just think what our relationship with God would be like, if we were to put that much effort into a trusting relationship with Him. You know…we tend to make life so complicated and even a life of needless suffering…all because we aim to make life work our way, rather than going the simple route of just trusting in a God who already knows the way in life…a God who can truly crown each effort put forth with success.
When I came to see how much easier it would be to trust God and Him alone…life not only appeared to be easier for me; but I found over time that life was more at peace, as I placed my whole self into the hands of a God, who I knew I could already trust, to take care of my every need.
