Do I trust God?

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Do we trust God? It’s a question everyone who claims to know Him must ask themselves. Do we trust God?

God desires our trust. God deserves our trust. God provided His word, His story written and compiled for our ease of reading. Do we read it? Do we know what it says, or do we depend on someone else to tell us what it means?

Do I trust God? It’s a question that I must ask myself. I realize there are those who prefer not to ask questions. They prefer to give the answers. However, if we are to continue learning, we must be willing to ask the tough questions.

As God’s people, do we trust Him? Do we truly TRUST God?

If not, why not? What has taken God’s place for our trust? We want our money and our court walls to say, “In God We Trust,” but do we? Do we trust God?

I’m not sure I realized until this week that trusting God isn’t a choice; it’s a command. God didn’t say, “Trust Me if you want to or when you feel like it.” He said, “Have I not commanded you?”

Trust God. Don’t just say we do; don’t just demand that it be on our money; don’t just insist that it be in our courts of law. Trust God.

For without trust, there really isn’t a relationship at all. There’s an acquaintance, but not a relationship. Relationships require trust.
