Trust in God



There is a hymn that my husband and I talk about and even quote to our kids, and it is the chorus of Trust and Obey.

It says, "Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey."


In a post I wrote last year I wrote these two sentences about trusting God.

The first one is, "Obey and trust the Lord – Do as He says and trust in His ways."

We can fulfill someone's requests, but we may question and struggle to trust or understand the reasoning behind them.

The second one is, "Trust and obey the Lord – Have faith that the Lord knows best, and by doing so, you will obey His commands."

Trusting God makes it easier to be willing to go and do whatever He asks of us.


1 John 2:3-6 - And we can be sure that we know him if we obey his commandments. If someone claims, “I know God,” but doesn’t obey God’s commandments, that person is a liar and is not living in the truth. But those who obey God’s word truly show how completely they love him. That is how we know we are living in him. Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.


Jesus fully trusted God. He willingly came to earth knowing the end result, which was to die and then rise again for the purpose God had ordained: to save us. That is true trust and obedience.


Psalm 33:4 says, For the word of the Lord holds true, and we can trust everything he does.


As people, we sometimes struggle to trust and may require proof before we place our trust in someone or something. Therefore, we often question, seek, and may or may not find the assurance we seek.

The scripture above assures us that the word of the Lord remains true, and even today, we can trust in everything He does.


I know I can trust in the Lord because of His promises in His Word and the evidence of His faithfulness in my life. Prayer, worship, and reading the Bible are profound ways to communicate with God and build our trust in Him, serving as proof of His reliability.


When we trust, we become more able to obey and recognize the truth in what God says.


We place our trust in various things in life, some of which involve adventure, and we willingly embrace them because they bring us joy. Similarly, we should approach our relationship with God, trusting Him so deeply that we eagerly follow His guidance, knowing it will bring fulfillment.


Though trust may be something we question, God is the one in whom we can place our complete trust, knowing that He always has our best interests at heart. Let us trust in the process of God.


Once, while at the office, my husband stumbled upon an item from our house that somehow ended up there, and it happened to be something our daughter had been searching for.

He picked it up and held it in his hand, then told our daughter, "I found this for you; hold out your hand, and I’ll give it to you."

Although our daughter trusts her dad, who is known to be a jokester, she was uncertain about what he had in his hand, leading her to question whether she could trust him.


Similarly, when we find ourselves in moments of uncertainty, we may begin to doubt our trust in the Lord and question whether what He has in store for us is truly meant for us.


Romans 8:31 says, What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us?


Remember, God is on your side, so when you encounter uncertainty, focus on the fact that He is with you. Trust in His plan and know that His ways are good. He will lead you along the path He has prepared for you. Trust in Him.


Just to calm the wonder…. All that was in my husband’s hand was a puzzle piece that our daughter had been looking for. She eventually got up the nerve to let him drop it in her hand.


We should trust God and let Him hold His hand out and let Him drop in the piece He has for you to complete or move on to the next piece of the puzzle.

Trust the process.
