In God we Trust
Some trust in chariots, some in horses, and some in money, political systems, intellect, and the list goes on and on. Our money boasts “In God We Trust”, but do we really trust Him?? Do we really trust in God in hard times, confusing times, and painful times? Or is it the other things in our heart that determines what our mouth will speak?
It’s easy to make a declaration of Godly trust when things are going well, and you should in times like these. However, in actuality, our confidence in, and reliance on God develops and grows, not in times of quiet, but in times of unrest. It’s in these times – times when God makes a way out of no way – that we realize that God is our ultimate provider and the source of our strength. When we recognize who God is to us, we begin to create a mental filing cabinet of all the times God worked out each situation for our good, even when it didn’t feel like or look like it was good. As we grow, we begin to depend on God’s timing to reveal the miraculous provisions He has made – the provisions that made it possible for all things to work in our favor. This posture removes all doubt and gives us a sense of assurance that no matter what happens, God will cause the situation to work out for our good. “Some may trust in chariots and some in horses, but we will remember the name of the Lord our God.” (Ps. 20:7) Let us remember to trust God for everything, not just for what we want.
