Trust

Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. If you heard God talking, would you respond? To hear the voice of God and to follow where it leads, isn’t that what we’re all after? Who wouldn’t want to hear God’s voice over their shoulder?


The problem is we seldom know whose voice it is we’re hearing. So we attempt to move thinking that God is speaking to us loud and clear. We have to take into consideration that our hearts speak, our minds speak, regret screams out at us, and shame shouts out even louder at us! The Spirit whispers to us, while the devil pulls our strings. And in the midst of all the noise, how can we possibly know if it’s the voice of Abba father we’re following or just our own desires?


As much as I want to say I trust God, I’d rather feel sure and competent about my future! But that’s it, no one knows the future. And if faith and trust are God’s true goals for our lives, then it would make sense He’d have to keep us in the dark on some things in order to cultivate other things inside us. What if we were never meant to know god’s entire plan for our life, would we be able to take the necessary steps to move forward while trusting Him in His silence?


What if God doesn’t want to give us answers, because He wants to give us His presence, would you still follow Him? Uncertainty precedes faith, and doubt must take hold before we can exude trust. Trust is what grows in our hearts when we give our doubts over to the Lord. You have to have some fear before you can take courage.


Trust is believing your future is wrapped in the love of God. And can we trust to fall into wherever God leads us? I want to hear His melody over me so loud that all other voices learn their proper harmony to His song. But that takes practice. It takes leaning in every second of every day. I want to grow in my ability to hear His voice, and hopefully you want to grow in Him as well. Not to just hear a voice that’s always guiding you, but a voice that’s always changing you.


Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLV) – “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not trust in your own understanding. Agree with Him in all your ways, and He will make your paths straight.”
