Trust is essential to any healthy relationship. How good does it feel to know that you can trust a close friend, family member or significant other? The importance of trust cannot be understated:
“Trust is the faith you have in someone that they will always remain loyal to you and love you. To trust someone means that you can rely on them and are comfortable confiding in them because you feel safe with them. It is the building block for any relationship without which the foundation will always remain shaky… Trust is that foundation upon which your relationship can survive the hardest of times. In fact, without trust, you cannot sustain your relationship for a long time. Lack of trust is one of the reasons for relationships to fall apart.” – Kalpana M.
If trust is so important for human relationships how much more is it important that we place our trust in our God when it comes to our relationship with Him? What blows my mind about Jesus is that while human beings will always let us down in some way, regardless of the level of trust we put in them, the Son of Man will never let us down! We can always trust Him with certainty:
1 Paul, a servant of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ, for the faith of God’s elect and their knowledge of the truth that leads to godliness, 2 in the hope of eternal life that God, who cannot lie, promised before time began. – Titus 1:2
I have really been enjoying reading through the book of Titus and love the truth contained in verse 2 which shows the fact that God will never lie to us. This means His Word is perfect and true and that God will always do what He says He will. This means that we can always depend on Him!
2 Indeed, God is my salvation; I will trust him and not be afraid, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is my strength and my song. He has become my salvation.” – Isaiah 12:2
4 Trust in the Lord forever, because in the Lord, the Lord himself, is an everlasting rock! – Isaiah 26:4
10 Do not fear, for I am with you; do not be afraid, for I am your God. I will strengthen you; I will help you; I will hold on to you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41:10
