“In you, LORD my God, I put my trust” (Psalm 25:1).
Here’s the funny thing about trust. When trust is not necessary, you don’t need trust in order to act.
When there’s good reason to act, when it makes perfect sense to do something, when it’s obvious what you should do, you don’t need trust. You just do it because it’s reasonable. Because it makes perfect sense. Because it’s obvious.
The only time you need trust is when things aren’t reasonable, or make sense, or obvious.
You see, life throws us curve balls. Life sometimes makes no sense. Sometimes, life just plain ol’ stinks. Life can hurt sometimes.
In those times, fear, pain, and uncertainty wants to paralyze us. It wants to keep us from living. And should we give into fear, pain, and paralysis…well…that would be sad.
“In you, LORD my God, I put my trust,” the psalmist wrote. You know why? Because the psalmist found himself in some difficult, crappy situations.
So, all those who refuse to give into fear, pain, and paralysis, well done!
As you trust, here’s what you do:
- You keep praying
- You keep believing
- You keep reading the Bible
- You keep trusting
- You keep obeying
- You keep praising
- You keep growing
You go, you God trusting people!!!
