No matter what we face this week, God can be trusted.
Os Guiness writes, “Christians do not say, ‘I do not understand you at all, but I trust you anyway.’ Rather we say, ‘I do not understand you in this situation, but I understand why I trust you anyway.’”
Can you say that? Do you understand why you trust God even when you don’t understand what He’s doing?
God has proved His trustworthiness in many ways—in our lives, in His Word, and in history. The ultimate demonstration of His trustworthiness was the Cross. God made the greatest sacrifice to meet our greatest need: He gave His Son for the salvation of sinners. He proved that He will go to any lengths necessary to meet the needs of His beloved children. Therefore, we can trust Him.
Our trust wanes and falters at times, doesn’t it? I know mine does! I’m thankful that my hope is in God’s unchangeable character, not my own fickle faith.
We may not trust perfectly or even feel like trusting at all. But we can cling to our understanding of God’s character, even when we don’t understand our circumstances.
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?
