The word trust

I like words. When I get furniture to put together or new technology or try a new recipe, I like words to be present in the instructions. Have you ever seen instructions without words, just pictures with arrows and other stuff guiding you? Does not work for me. Do not like it at all. Words, give me some words. Of course, a visual aid can be helpful, but not as the sole set of instructions.

What does the word trust mean? “A firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or something.”

Who do you trust? What things do you place your trust in? Has someone ever broken your trust? Have you ever caused a person to stop trusting you? When we think about trust we see how easy it is to both take it for granted and abuse it at the same time. Maybe we do that with God.

Our human relationships often mirror our relationship with God. Until we learn that God Is not like people. Thank God! He is far more forgiving, all-knowing, loving, faithful, giving, loving, wise, patient, kind, and and and, fill in your word, than we are in our dealings with each other and with him. Yet he is faithful to us, always allowing us to return to him when we seek him.

Do you have a firm belief in God being reliable? Deuteronomy 32:4
Do you know that he is truth? John 14:6-7
Do you know that he has great ability? Luke 8:24-25
Do you know his strength? Psalm 73:26

    I like a nice combo of words and pictures ;). When I sew, I usually look at the pictures, and if I get confused, I read the words. I’m very glad that God is not like people :).
