Let’s face it we all fall short of being 100% trustworthy.
It’s a good thing Scripture never says to fully trust in man or we would be in a world of trouble. The Bible says to love others as yourself, put others before yourself, serve one another, but put your full trust in God.
Fact is, God never lies, He never slanders, He never makes fun of us, He understands all our pain, He promises to always be there, and faithfulness and loyalty is a part of His character. Malachi 3:6 put it this way, “I am the LORD, and I do not change!”
I get it, we all want something, or someone, we can count on that is a constant or unchanging. We long for something, or someone, that we can trust for stability and that steadfastness that holds us like an anchor. But the reality is there is only One that can actually meet and exceed these expectations or desires and He is closer than any brother (Proverbs 18:24). His name is Jesus and He is just, faithful, loving and we can always count on Him to be the same yesterday, today and tomorrow (Hebrews 13:8).
We can take heart and have confidence in Jesus. Unlike our own wealth or earthly leaders which will disappoint and constantly change, Jesus is the one steadfast and unchanging anchor who can hold our lives together.
So let us take confidence in him. Let us cling to him. We can trust him. We can count on Him each and every day.
