Proverbs 3:5-6

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths”.

You know “what” we cannot trust someone we don’t know, and that is the secret of learning to trust God. “You must learn about God, and get know Him before you can trust Him”. If someone says to you “Trust me”, you can either say, “yes, I’ll trust you”, or you can say, “No, why should I trust you”? Trusting God will come naturally when we learn who God is and why we should trust Him.

The main reason we should trust God is that He is worthy of our trust. Unlike men, He never lies and never fails to fulfill His promises.

“God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that He should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good”? Numbers 23:19

Unlike men, He has the power to bring to pass what His plans and purposes is to do in your life and also to “Will” His purpose in the earth.

“The LORD of hosts hath sworn, saying, surely as I have thought, so shall it come to pass; and as I have purposed, so shall it stand:” Learn to love God and then you will “trust” Him.

All of the plans of God are perfect, holy, righteous, and He works all things together for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose”. Roman 8:28.

Note: all things work together for good”, not that all things that happen is good, but with God the thing that is not good in life, He will see you through and turn it around for good for you and me, and in that thing that is not good, “IT WILL WORK FOR OUR GOOD” – with God’s “Will” working in our life, to gather with His grace and mercy, we are the most blessed people. If we will endeavor to know God through His Word, we will see that He is worthy of our trust, and our trust in Him will grow daily. To know God is to trust Him.

The record of God’s promises is in His Word for all to see, alone with the record of fulfillment. There are Historical documents to verify those events and speak of God’s faithfulness to His people. Do you see God working in your life? Have you seen His faithfulness in your life? I think every Christian can give personal testimony to God’s trustworthiness as they see His work in their lives, fulfilling His promises to save our souls and to use us for His purposes (Ephesians 2:8-10) and comfort us with peace that passes all understanding as we run the race He has planned out for us (Philippians 4:6-7); (Hebrews 12:1). The more we experience His grace, faithfulness, and goodness, the more we trust Him. (Psalm 100:5); (Isaiah 25:1)

So as I began to close and summarize why you can trust God more, I will say in conclusion: We have no other sensible alternative. Should we trust in ourselves or in others who are sinful, unpredictable, unreliable, have limited wisdom, and who frequently make bad choices and decisions swayed by emotion? Or do we trust in the all-wise, all-knowing, all-powerful, gracious, merciful, loving God who has good intentions for us? The choice should be obvious, but we fail to trust God because we don’t know Him. As you already know, you cannot hope to trust in someone who is essentially a stranger to you, but that is easily remedied. God has not made Himself difficult to find or know. All we need to know about God, He has graciously made available to us in the Bible, His holy word to His people. “TO KNOW GOD IS TO TRUST HIM.


“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths”.
