Can I Trust Him?

“If God is for us, who can be against us?  He who did not spare His own Son but gave him up for us all, how will He not also along with Him graciously give us all things?”  Romans 8:31-32

Can I trust Him?   God, that is.  Can I trust Him?  That’s the question we all struggle with.  Day by day, week by week.   Can I trust Him?

Can I trust Him to help me in the midst of this dying relationship.  Can I trust Him to see me through this illness.  Can I trust Him to help me accept the pain of this loss.  Can I trust Him to get me through the financial mess I’m in.  Can I trust Him when my perfect plans for life have been derailed.  Can I trust Him when I don’t understand why all of this bad stuff is happening.  Can I trust Him when I can’t see where I’m going in life…

Can I trust Him?

“He who did not spare His own Son but gave Him up for us all, how will he not also with Him graciously give us all things?”

You see, the cross of Jesus says so clearly:  Yep, I can trust Him.

Because God is all in on this relationship.   If He was willing to give up His Son into death for us – and He was – then don’t you think He’s going to take care of everything else for us?

It’s not easy to trust.  Our weak and frail sinful nature wants God to do things the way we want Him to do things.  But He knows better.  Always. 

Lord, help me to trust You.  Because I know that You are for me in Christ.  Always.  Forever.

Gracious Heavenly Father, You have shown Your eternal commitment to me in the giving up of your Son on the cross for my salvation.  When I struggle to trust, point me always to the cross as the undeniable truth that you are for me and with me.  Help me by Your Spirit to trust Your plans, whatever they are.  Because You always know best.  In Jesus’ name, Amen.
