Trust is looking forward to getting something we don’t yet have. When you trust your heavenly Father, you can wait patiently and confidently. Some people trust everyone; others trusted at one time but have since found it to be too painful because of past betrayals and now trust no one. The Word of God tells us that we are to trust the Lord completely. God has promised to hold us by our right hand and help us in our time of need. He has also promised to never leave nor forsake us. Do you have that assurance from anyone else in your life? Our family and friends are limited in what they can do for us, but God is not. People will disappoint us from time to time. They cannot always do what we would like for them to do. Promises are broken no matter how hard a person may try to keep their word but Jesus Christ is the authentic promise-keeper. No one who puts their trust in God will be disappointed.
If you want to learn how to trust, begin by trusting God. God will show you His faithfulness. He will cause you not to fear. If you are emotionally suffering from a past relationship where your trust was violated, let the love of God heal you. God’s love is everlasting and unconditional. God is love.
