It’s a trust thing..
So much of our everyday lives depend on us trusting others to do ‘the right thing’.
We trust that other drivers are going to stay on their side of the road and follow the road rules when we are out driving our cars. Mostly they do. Sometimes though, the danger is highlighted as we watch car after car drive past us with only a few inches separating us.
When we go into a restaurant and order a meal we trust that we will be served what we have ordered, for the advertised price and that the kitchen staff are following hygiene rules; the waiters following rules of good service. And mostly they do.
At the doctor’s surgery we trust that the doctor we see does have the qualifications he says he does. There are checks in place but mostly it’s a trust thing.
If we can place our trust in fallible human beings- why is it so hard to trust in our heavenly Father. Why do we doubt that He has and will provide all that we need. He possesses all power, and all wisdom, and what He doesn’t have He can make more of. He’s everywhere and knows about every danger I might be heading for, every hurdle I need to cross.
Why is it so hard? For me- it’s because the world tells me to stand tall and be strong and the world is so firmly fixed within that I find it hard to purge every part of it.
My Father, YOUR Father, assures us that when we surrender and trust in Him alone- He can be relied upon. That’s a promise from an infallible God.
"But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." ~2 Corinthians 12:9 (New International Version)
