Trusting God, no matter what’s going on in your life. Life can be going along smoothly for a season. Your job is satisfying, your friends and family are enjoyable, your goals, finance, health, and
your outlook seem bright. Then, all of a sudden, life throws a curveball. Someone you know gets sick. You lose your job. A friend or family member betrays you. The things you felt secure in all of a sudden feel shaky and uncertain. The question becomes how do you trust that Good is good in these circumstance? To trust is to believe in the reliability, truth, or strength of something. So, when it comes to trusting God, that means believing in His reliability, His Word, His ability, and His strength. The Bible says that God cannot lie. (Hebrews 6:18, ) says it was impossible for God to lie. That He always keeps His promises. That He loves you and has good in store for you. Trusting in Him means believing what He says about Himself, about the world, and about you is true. So, trusting God is more than a feeling: it’s a choice to have faith in what He says even when your feelings or circumstance would have you believe something different.
