Trustworthy

Each day we put our trust in many things.  When we flip the light switch we trust the lights to come on.  When we put the key in the ignition we trust our car will start.  When we pull up to the drive-thru we trust the food we crave will be ready within minutes. There are so many things we put our trust in however, very few things are truly trustworthy.  People and things can let us down.  However when we put our trust in God we can rest assured that He is very trustworthy.

You may be in a rough patch today.  You may up against a mountain of pain and not sure what to do next.  You may have been hurt by someone you trusted very deeply.  You may be in a health crisis and not sure what the future holds.  Wherever you find yourself today, you can trust God's heart.   When you receive God's gift of salvation you become His child.  In Romans 8:28-39 God's heart is revealed.   He lets us know that for his children He causes all things to work for our good.  He also tells us that He loves us with a love that nothing can take away.   We can trust a God that loves us with a perfect love.  Even when we face heartbreaking circumstances He does not abandon us.   He doesn't hide when we hurt.  He is close to the down and broken-hearted.

I want to encourage you to put your trust in Someone that is trustworthy and true; God our Father.  He gave us Jesus and the Holy Spirit and He loves us very deeply.  While people and things are unpredictable, Hebrews 13:8 tells us that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
