Who Can We Trust Anymore?

Trust is a hard thing to come by these days.

It seems like there is no one left to put your trust in, even those who say they are of God, and by their fruit, you can tell they serve the rebellious one instead.

Others keep trusting in their wealth, power, prestige, elite status, etc. It will eventually get them in the same place Satan and his horde will end up.

Humans let humans down; it’s because of the sin nature that has been within us since the time of the Fall of man. No matter how much we may have tried to do good, we end up hurting those we love sometimes, and they do the same to us. Sometimes, it is not on purpose; more often than not, it is.

Sin is a choice we all make; and when one decides to make the choice to purposely hurt another by lying, stealing, cheating, gossiping, cursing out, deceiving, abusing, committing adultery or even murdering another, all trust is lost in that person.

It’s the consequence of sin that TRUST is one of the main things that is lost between humans.

But the ONE Person who can always be trusted, no matter what WE humans have done, even against Him, is the Eternal Godhead.

The Lord Jesus never once said or did anything harmful to me, that would prompt me to say I cannot trust Him. In fact, He has always kept His promises, and even when I have betrayed Him, and should have lost His trust in me, nevertheless, He continues to be at my side.

Why? Because He IS God (Deut. 32:39; 2Sam. 722; Is. 45:5). Because He IS trustworthy(Ps. 118:8). Because He IS faithful(2 Tim. 2:3; 2 Thess. 3:3). Because He IS forgiving (Num. 14:18; Ps. 99:8; 103:10-14; Matt. 6:14-15). Because He knows how weak and sinful mankind is, and how the enemy of our souls has used and abused us to fight against God AND each other, just to spite Him, all out of hatred.

I had to learn to trust again, even after I have not only been let down by others, but also myself. The Lord Jesus helped me to do that, to trust again- first and most importantly, in Him.

If you cannot seem to put your trust in anyone else for whatever reason, but also have not taken the time out to put your trust in the Lord God, do it now. “God is not a man that He should lie” (Num. 23:19); He truly IS the only One that can be fully trusted.

Be bold. Step out in FAITH and learn to finally put your TRUST in God.
