Do you deal with trust issues? I am just talking about in life. But even as a Christian, one can have issues, and challenges in these matters of trust.
See, I am a Christian, and I had to learn how to trust God, from the beginning. I grew up, with a very good mother, who loved me, but she had “major” trust issues.
She had been damaged by many, and she trusted no one. So she was suspicious and very on guard. So I grew up with that, yet, I knew it was unhealthy and very off balance, for lack of a better word, to be so untrusting.
Because it can hinder relationships. It can cause fear, and God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind.
So, I learned to trust God.
TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL THINE HEART: AND LEAN NOT UNTO THINE OWN UNDERSTANDING. Proverbs 3:5. KJV.
Look at this scripture, its very instructional. And thats what Gods holy King James word will do, it will instruct, it comforts, it guides, it leads us closer to God, to even understand. But its holy word. Other bible versions, are someone else’s understanding not God, by the changing of it, and the words they use. They make it no longer holy. Or anointed, and you really want the full power, and affect of holy word, from God Himself.
But as you look at this scripture, we cannot, lean into our own understanding. Get that quick, when it comes to “trusting.”
We have to trust God, we have to do so, completely, without reservations, without question to God, though He is gracious enough to answer us, but something about having our faith, to “trust” God, releases something in us, that I call strength, and courage.
Life is hard, and when people let you down, especially when you trust them, you do learn lessons in life.
I had a friend, who I loved dearly. I never thought this person, would react the way she did, or do the things that she did in matters of respect. Including her daughter. Because I thought, I was part of the family, because of our friendship, we had in Christ.
But she hurt me. And I really don’t want to get into all the details, or go on about it. I think I have here, and its really an old issue, and I do want to be healed. So I want to be careful about opening up an old wound.
But it affected my trust. And I even see myself, looking at other people that way, and think, are you going to hurt me too? I have, done so, already, since this happened, and its not good.
And I don’t want to blame others, for my experiences, in matters of trust. But, I find, myself, trusting God more. Asking for wisdom, and guidance, because I felt burned.
I don’t think I can trust anybody like I did her, the damage is done. Sure I forgive, but something changed in my heart, and well, like I said, I was brought up with that, negative energy, so I know, only God, can help me. So its more of a challenge, now then ever.
Have you ever noticed, the enemy tries to attack you in things, you have experienced? Like a cycle it tries to come back. Well I plead the blood of Jesus, aware, and commit to trust Him more. To submit to God, resist the devil so he can flee.
I don’t know where you are or if this will help. But I share it, I write it, because I know who God is, and only He can help us with our issues of trust.
As a Christian, I know this. If you are not a Christian, I recommend you do give your heart to Christ. Repent, for your own lack of doubt, or trust in God. Or if you have caused someone, to hurt, because they trusted you, and you burned them. Again read a King James, the anointing is there, for your faith, in anything.
I don’t know how people do it, without God, without Christ. I don’t want to find out. See thats my reassurance in a world, that leaves Him out. I won’t, ignore Him, because I do trust God, and thats the greatest strength, I get in life.
Blessings, and love,
