You can trust me. This is a statement we hear quite often from people today. How much do you trust someone, especially in today’s world? The song, Trust and Obey, written by John H. Sammis, says, “Trust and obey, for there’s no other way. To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”
Yesterday, my son said if someone loses his trust, it is like squeezing toothpaste out of the tube and then trying to put it back in. Yes, it can be done, but it will take time. Even today, deciding who we will trust is hard.
How do you trust a God you cannot see? This is an excellent question. I remember when I was learning to swim as a child. You start in the kiddy pool, and through time and swimming lessons, I made it to the deep end. This is the same process we go through once we accept Jesus.
We must learn from the Bible, church, and bible studies and work through our ability to trust a God we cannot see with our future. To be willing to float down the river with God, trusting He knows what is ahead and will be there to supply your every need.
Exodus 16 shows how God supplied the Israelites in the desert with protection, food, and water. This was 600,000 men, not counting women, children, or livestock. Yet God provided for them. ALL OF THEM for 40 years.
Trusting and obeying a God who did that is a step in faith. As the song says, “Trust and obey, for there’s no other way. To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.”
Are you willing to trust God today?
