Trust God

One of the things that we have to teach our kids is to trust God. To do that we have to trust God. That is a whole lot easier to write and say than it is to do. A friend of mine and I were talking about that this morning. We looked together at Hebrews 11:6. It seems to me that the tough part of that verse is after the “and.” It is kind of the counterpoint to Romans 8:28 and Hebrews 12:10 is it not?

Trusting God is not only believing that He is in control and can help us through each challenge in our life, but that He has a good heart and demonstrates that continually toward us. It means that we accept the circumstances in which we find ourselves as from a loving and caring God who is committed to His agenda of making us like His Son and fruitful members of His kingdom. It does not mean that all things are going to work out in the manner we desire. Trust means we accept God’s plan, even when it hurts, and does not seem to fit what we think should be happening.

What we tell our kids about trust will be drowned out by how we respond in trust to our Lord during difficult, trying times. What is your message to them? What are some of the things that hinder your trust?
