Do you have trust issues?

To some extent we all do. Life experiences and hurt teach us people can’t be trusted. Even those you love.

God can be trusted.

Yet you may have trust issues with Him.

My article for Crosswalk about being stuck in the hallway continues to resonate with many people (over 11k shares and counting). Perhaps you found this blog because you are stuck in the hallway. Today I would like to reassure you: Father can be trusted. God has not forgotten. He has not abandoned you. Trust Him. He will open a door no man can shut.

Isaiah 40:31 But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.

Being stuck in a hallway doesn’t take much strength, right? I mean, running in wide open spaces takes strength; moving to another level requires strength, not being stagnant in a hallway.

As anyone in a hallway will tell you, it drains your strength. Till there is nothing left.

God is opening doors in this new year of new possibilities. Walking (or perhaps running) through a new door requires new strength. Renewed strength comes as you trust God.

You can trust God.

You can.

Trust God.

I have such an excitement in my spirit for you. Father knows your name and your struggle. Trust Him; renew your strength, for you are about to soar on
eagle’s wings.

    I enjoyed the article showing that God is trustworthy but I have to disagree with you on the source. The statement “Renewed strength comes as you trust God.” is misleading. After being a Christian for almost 40 years I realize that renewed strength is a result of “abiding in Him.” Trust is Faith, Faith is trust. But it all begins with staying in the Word. “Faith comes by hearing . . . the Word of God”.
    This is the source.

      Yes, Rosemary, I needed to take things one step further. Trust is faith and faith comes through the Word.

    This is a timely and perfect message to me today as my head aches from what I can’t explain due to a challenging situation that only God can handle. I trust Him but still have some traces of something else, honestly. Sarah, God has spoken to me through you, but how can i completely and totally TRUST Him? I need His grace, mercy, and power. Pleaseee… pray with me!!!

      Hi Sarah, I am standing with you in prayer for your situation, believing for the grace and power of God to manifest.

      You asked how to trust. Like in any relationship, trust comes as you know someone better. We know God through His Word (as Rosemary commented above).

      God is good. (Psalm 116:5)
      He does not lie. (Numbers 23:19)
      He will never leave you. (Hebrews 13:5)

      Blessings to you, Sarah, and keep me posted.
