"Do you trust Me?"

This seems like it should be such a simple question to answer, or at least we always know what we should answer. I mean, we serve the God of all creation (Genesis 1-2). The God who loved us enough to sacrifice His own Son so that we would have the choice of eternity with Him or not (John 3:16). The God that fights for us (Exodus 14:14). The God that protects us (Psalm 91:1-4). The God who works ALL things together for our good (Romans 8:28). The God who will never let anything come between us (Romans 8:31-39). The God who removes our sin from us as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). The God who will always welcome us back into His arms after we are stubborn and prideful and try to go about things our own way (Luke 15:11-32). The God who is our rest (Matthew 11:28-30). The God who is faithful (Hebrews 10:23). The God who never ever leaves (Hebrews 13:5). I could go on and on and on. He’s given us every reason to trust Him and never given us one reason not to. So why then is it so hard to answer this question sometimes? 

Honestly, there are times where my answer is no. Deep down, if I really answered truthfully. Whether others notice it or not, I do. I have my own way of how I think things should be; what I think is best. I don’t trust His plans - even though they are plans for a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11-14). Even though everything mentioned above about my God is and always will be true. Satan finds ways to creep into our thoughts and cause us to doubt our God. How crazy is that?! At times, it’s easy to look around at the circumstances and say, “God, there is no way that good could come out of this.” or “God, there’s just too much to be done; I can’t see how you’re going to bring it together.” See, that’s the thing. I serve an infinite, all powerful God who is never limited by me. I praise Him for that daily!

God never needs to prove to me anything about Himself. I know and I believe He is who He says He is. Yet, even when I say, “God, I’ll be honest. I don’t trust you right now.” He says, okay, here you go. He BLESSES me! He LOVES me! He starts fighting for my heart once more. He’ll never stop. He’ll never say, “Okay fine if you don’t trust me then I’m done with you.” He’ll never do that. He humbles me daily just by experiencing life with Him. 

He’s worthy of all my trust. He’s worthy of all your trust. Cling to Him. Not because of what He gives, but because of who He is. Trust Him (Proverbs 3:5-6) despite of the chaos around you.
