Ask Not

Trust is a big deal to me. I want to know that I have people in my life that I can trust. But sometimes, I don’t trust myself, let alone anyone else. And I know I can and should trust God, but occasionally, I doubt that, too.

Your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and your dominion endures through all generations. The Lord is trustworthy in all He promises and faithful in all He does. ~Psalm 145:13 {NIV}

The other day, I was pondering the whole trust thing and how trust is really based on truth and reliability for me. I want to know that, if needed, you’ll come through in a pinch. Just like that, questions started popping into my mind.

Can I be trusted? Do people trust me? And the more humbling, can God trust me?

Whoa! Deep, right?

I often overlook that God wants to trust me. Yes, even me, the person that doubts Him at times and messes up royally, over and over again.

Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So, if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? ~Luke 16:10-11 {NIV}

I don’t know about you but I want some true riches. God has entrusted me with so much: people, stuff, wealth, skills, gifts, talents, and time; just to name a few. So the next time I’m hosting a pity party for one because I feel I don’t have anyone to trust, I’m going to think on this:

“Ask not who you can trust? But who can trust you?”

    Whoa! I’ll need some time to think on this, cause it seems to be hitting a sore spot in my heart! Perhaps, I need to think more about God trusting me…thanks, Laura, for opening this up.

    Interesting thought – Does God trust me? I think he does, just because he’s like that…he’s very aware of my weaknesses and still loves me. But it certainly is humbling to know that he does. Food for thought!
