Have you ever thought about how much we end up “trusting” in our life? Throughout our entire life, there are so many people and things in this world that we trust our lives to.
When we entered this world, we were so innocent and helpless. Our lives were dependent on our parents or guardians. They took on the responsibility of supplying our many needs and nurturing us until we could care for ourselves.
Doctors are people we trust when we are ill and seek medical attention. We probably don’t think that much about doctors, until we need one—that is when we trust in their skill and knowledge. We put our very lives in their hands.
Many times each day we trust our lives to some form of transportation—whether it be cars, boats, trains or planes. We just hop in the vehicle without thinking twice of the risk involved in the vehicle or the person in charge. We trust that the vehicle will function properly and that the person operating it knows what he or she is doing.
Shouldn’t we trust our God even more than all these people and things?

Trust God to……
…fill that “empty” space in your heart
…be your Lord and Savior
…fill your heart with peace
…lead you to do His will
…keep you safe in Him
…provide people in your life to encourage you
…provide people in your life to help you grow spiritually
…make it through each day living victoriously even if your circumstances are bad.
God created the entire earth and all that is in it—from the white, puffy clouds to the littlest insect and to you and me. He has enabled humans to do so much and empowered us to use our brains to grow in knowledge. Our God is all-powerful and awesome! Trust in Him and have faith that He will guide your every step.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. –Proverbs 3:5-6
