Learning to Trust God
Moses showed courage when he trusted God enough to lead a nation of people into the wilderness, and Jesus’ disciples showed courage when they left behind everything they knew to follow him. We show it by responding to his call despite physical manifestations of fear. It’s up to us to decide if the freedom of Jesus is worth it. What’s your decision?
If you’ve ever wondered if you could trust someone with a secret or with something very valuable, you probably remember the nervous feeling of hope mixed with uncertainty as you opened yourself up to that person. People can make mistakes and let you down, and placing your trust in another person takes a great deal of courage. Although others can betray that trust, God never will. When you learn to trust Him in all circumstances, you’ll find a peace that you won’t understand but will truly welcome.
In life, there’s bound to be situations we can’t handle, and when we turn to friends or family, their flaws and imperfections can keep them from being a reliable source of help. Sometimes the insecurities and fears of others may cause them to be unsympathetic when we desperately need guidance or advice. When the world turns on us and those closest to us distance themselves, God does just the opposite. “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken” (Psalm 55:22, NIV). We can trust that He won’t disappear in our darkest times, because His promise never to leave us is true.
