Reasons to Trust God

"Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness" (Psalm 37:3)  

There are many reasons why we can trust God:

He is the one, true God 2 Samuel 7:21-22). From the beginning of time, those who seek God have found Him. No other god has revealed himself to man in this way.

He is the essence of truth (Hebrews 6:17-18). God cannot lie, and He will never lead you astray. However, He has told us that there is one who deceives us, and that is satan. Jesus called him the "father of lies" and rightly so (John 8:44).

He is absolutely faithful (Lamentations 3:23). When was the last time God let you down? He never has, and He never will. No matter what you are facing, God knows about it, and He is near to show you how to resolve your dilemma.

He has all power (Matthew 28:18). Henry Thiessen writes, "God can do what He wills to do, but He does not necessarily will to do anything ... To the Christian the omnipotence of God is a source of great comfort and hope."

He loves you unconditionally (John 15:9). God will never stop loving you. Even when you are unlovely, He loves you. And it is His love that draws you away from sin and into His arms of infinite care.

He never changes (Hebrews 13:8). God is immutable. Thiessen writes: "He is exalted above all causes and above even the possibility of change."

Dear Heavenly Father, You are the one, true God and the essence of all truth. You are faithful, You have all power, You love me unconditionally, and You never change. Thank you, and Amen!
