Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge. – Psalm 62:8
Some people say there are times when we need to forgive God. This implies that God does wrong, which is never true. However, we may find it hard to place faith in God if we’re convinced that He’s let us down.
God is trustworthy, but we don’t always know His mind, His reasons, or His ultimate intentions. We’re prone to misinterpreting His actions in our lives.
Friends, our problem with trusting God doesn’t stem from His untrustworthiness. It stems from our willful, misplaced determination to stand as judges over God Himself, determining right from wrong, good from bad, and better from best.
Yet one thing remains certain: You can trust God infinitely more than you trust yourself. So surrender to His wisdom, love, and mercy, and stop demanding that He act as we see fit.
– Steve Arterburn
It is impossible to go through life without trust; that is to be imprisoned in the worst cell of all, oneself. – Graham Greene
