Trusting God is necessary for Christian living, but it is not easy, especially in a world that doubts his sanity. Nonetheless, we must trust God, and the Bible has much to say that will help us no matter what our circumstances are.
We Are Commanded to Trust God
From beginning to end, the Christian life is one of trust in God. The Bible has much to say about God’s perfections, promises, and actions, as well as examples of trusting God and descriptions of how this trust should manifest itself in our lives.
The Perfections of God
Because of who he is in the perfection of his being, everything about God is trustworthy, and the Bible warns against trusting in anyone or anything other than the Lord. Wisdom is personified in Proverbs 1:20-33 as crying aloud in the street and raising her voice in the markets.
The Lord was constantly chastising Israel in the Old Covenant for their political alliances with pagan nations rather than trusting in him, and this is at the heart of all our sin and rebellionu2014we worshipu2014we trust in ourselves rather than the Creator who is blessed forever! He knows the end from the beginning and will carry out his plan.
The Promises of God
God’s word is true, and he keeps all of his promises (John 17:17; Num. 23:19), the fulfillment of which will be more than we can ask or imagine (Eph. 1:20). Paul alludes to this great promise when he writes that no one can bring a charge against God’s elect.
The Actions of God
Paul describes believers as having been chosen in Christ before the foundation of the world, and all four gospels recount Jesus’ life, death, burial, and resurrection from the dead.
Examples of Trust
The faith of a “great cloud of witnesses” is mentioned in Hebrews 11, and the Old Testament Scriptures provide many examples of what trusting God looks like in this fallen world. In the New Testament, people like Zechariah and Elizabeth, Mary, and Joseph trust in God.
The Manifestation of Trust in Our Lives as Christians
If we trust God, we will obey him because we believe he knows what is best. David learned to wait on the Lord before ascending to the throne of Israel, and trusting God will help us wait on him when he delays or is silent regarding our prayers. If we trust God, we will be content with what he has given us (Rom. 8:32).
