He Is Faithful Even When We are Not!

Trust simply means to have a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. With that said, we trust in God for a few reasons. 1.) We trust God just because of who He is! 2.) We trust God because of our faith in Him. 3.) We trust in God because of what He has done in our personal lives or in the lives of other people! Proverbs 3:5 reminds us to, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to our own understanding…..” Hence the dilemma! I believe we don’t have a problem trusting God when we can articulate every fine detail of the where, what, why, when, and how. But, let an ounce of obscurity blind our vision; we are quick to start leaning and relying on our own understanding! The blunt truth is that we can’t always fathom the unfathomable and God programmed it that way (Isaiah 55:8-9). Trust is more acutely focused on total reliance on something greater than what we can mentally articulate! So; we trust in the Lord because He and He alone is truly trustworthy. His Word is trustworthy (Psalm 93:5; 111:7; Titus 1:9), His nature is faithful and true (Deuteronomy 7:9; Psalm 25:10; 145:13; 146:6), and His plans for us are perfect and purposeful (Jeremiah 29:11). Although life’s circumstances may knock the wind out of faith and we may stumble, but “though we stumble, we will not fall, for the LORD upholds us with His mighty hand” (Psalm 37:24). Here’s the good news; when we are faithless (trust-less), He remains faithful (trust-full) because He can not deny Himself (2 Tim 2:13)!
