Why Is It So Difficult to Trust God?


How is it that we have an easier time trusting imperfect people than we do our perfect God?

"I will say of the LORD, 'He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'" - Psalm 91:2

There are times when I really have to wonder about all of us – the human race. We’ll do some of scariest and most idiotic things without giving it a second thought, while other times, we’re scared to death of something else, when that “something” just might be the best thing we ever experienced.

For example, isn’t it amazing all the people we entrust our lives to every week? We trust pharmacists to give us the right pills from a prescription we can’t read. We trust pilots we don’t know to fly us to the right destination, believing that they know how to fly that baby exactly where we need to go. As we sit in traffic on the interstate, we trust our lives to engineers and road construction crews, believing the bridges will hold.

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, we find Him difficult to trust.

It’s amazing. It doesn’t make sense to trust imperfect men and not to trust a perfect God.
