Yet God, our Creator, who loves us more than anyone, who even sacrificed His Son for us to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life, is difficult to trust.
"I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” - Psalm 91:2 niv
Think about all the different people to whom we entrust our lives. We trust pharmacists to give us the right pills from a prescription we can’t read. We trust pilots we don’t know to take us to the right destination, believing that they know how to fly that metal tube exactly where we need to go. As we soar down the interstate, we trust other drivers to stay alert and follow the road. We trust our lives to engineers and road construction crews, believing the bridges will hold. We make countless decisions to trust people we don’t even know every single day.
Yet people have trouble trusting God. They often say, “I can’t see Him.” Do we see the engineers who designed the bridge? Do we know the pilots? Not usually. Yet God, our Creator, who loves us more than anyone, who even sacrificed His Son for us to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life, is difficult to trust. It’s amazing. It just doesn’t make sense to trust imperfect men and women and not to trust a perfect God. From the love He shows us through His Son, it just makes sense to trust Him.
