‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart…’ (Proverbs 3:5)
How easy do we find it to trust someone? What does a person need to do in order to gain that trust? How do we feel if that trust is then either abused or betrayed? Is it possible to truly trust another person with all of our heart?
Questions like these, although we may not be openly conscious of them, are ones that we all face in our daily lives in our many situations and interactions with other people and the answer to each of them may vary depending on that person or that situation, causing us all sorts of dilemmas.
With the Lord, however, there should be problems or know dilemmas. Through His Son God has fulfilled His promises to us once and for all, revealing His great love for us and reconciling us to Himself. Therefore, we have no reason whatsoever to not trust the Lord. But do we trust Him with all our hearts – or do we hold back at times?
