In this world we’re living in right now it almost feels like we can’t trust anyone!
We are told that numbers are down and things are opening up. Then the next day were told numbers are up and everything is shutting back down! We are told the system is just and people are honest. Then we turn on one television station and hear one report. And yet we turn on another television station and hear an opposite report!
We make a new friend at school. She says we will be friends forever! She calls us her BFF! We exchange necklaces, 1/2 of the heart for her, 1/2 of the heart for us. And then, a cuter, more interesting, prettier and more popular girl moves into school. And our friend has changed sides and is no longer our friend.
We have a business partner who says he is committed, then pulls out of the deal and takes his clients with him. We have an employer who promises us the promotion, but gives it to someone else.
We have a parent who makes us feel like the queen of all the world! Who tells us we are beautiful, strong and can do anything we put our mind to. They tell us that nothing or no one can stop us from accomplishing our dreams! They tell us “Can’t died in the poor house. You CAN do anything you set your mind to! Nothing is impossible for you.”
You believe them! You put your trust in them! Then one day they walk out your front door and crush all your dreams and aspirations with the slamming of a door!
I was sixteen years old when I learned who I could trust when I did not know who to trust! The voice of God spoke clearly, softly and comfortingly to a shattered teenager lying in a pool of her own tears on her closet floor!
“I Am Your Heavenly Father! I Will Never Leave You!”
I learned that day who I could trust when I did not know who to trust!
My Heavenly Father!
I had a choice to make that day. I could trust Him even though so many others I had put my trust in failed me. I could pick myself up off that floor and trust in my Heavenly Father to keep His Word!
Or, I could stay on that floor, crushed by those who had broken my trust over and over again.
That day, I got up! I put my Trust in the only one who is Trustworthy!
My Heavenly Father has never left me, no matter what! Through the good times, the bad times, the doubtful times, and even the times when I have let Him down!
My Heavenly Father has stayed true to His Word!
When My Heavenly Father speaks to me it’s not in an audible voice. Although I am sure He speaks that way to some. When He speaks to me I hear it clearly, my soul is flooded with a peace that is unexplainable, I know it is Him! He never says anything contrary to His Word of Truth!
“…I will never leave you or forsake you.”
“Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is The Lord Your God who goes with you.” HE WILL NOT LEAVE YOU OR FORSAKE YOU.”
Who do we trust when we don’t know who to trust? Our Heavenly Father, that’s who! He is Trustworthy! He will never leave us when someone better comes along! He will never walk away and slam the door! He will never promise one thing and do another!
TRUST IN THE ONLY ONE WHO IS TRUSTWORTHY, OUR HEAVENLY FATHER!
He is now and forever will be our TRUSTWORTHY Heavenly Father!
When you do not know who to trust or which way to go, trust in your Heavenly Father, the Lord your God!
“Trust in The Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
