Learning to Trust

March Devotional Series - Let it Go - Week One

Trusting others has been difficult for me. People have hurt me over the years and trust did not come naturally for me as a result. My husband, Patrick, never gave me a reason not to trust him, but still I questioned him in my mind. After he stopped drinking over a year ago, I wasn’t sure I could trust he would continue to abstain.

This lack of trust carried over into my relationship with Jesus. Could I trust Him? Could I take His Word for truth? Could I believe He loved me despite the past I carried with me? I worked against God’s way for so many years, how could He possibly love me?

Finally, after months of wrestling with control, trust, and self-blame, I found the truth. The truth only God’s repeated words through the pages of a once forgotten Bible could bring. He continually spoke through the scriptures and reminded me of his sovereignty. All I had to do was learn to trust His words as truth.

Step three says I am to make a decision to turn my life and wills over to the care of God. In order to fully let go and let God do what he needs to do in my life, I must trust Him to take care of me. That can be hard for someone who has difficulty with trust. Through God’s Word, I find time and time again that His words are true.

There are many more truths found in the one and only book that has endured thousands of years. There is proof that lies within the pages of the Bible that God can be trusted. I have made my decision to turn my life and wills over to the care of God, because I trust Him. My life is no longer my own, it belongs to God. As Romans 12:1 says,

“Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship.”
