'Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock.' ~Isaiah 26:4
Trust is something that is hugely important to us. It is not automatic. Earning trust takes time and loosing trust can happen quickly. As a child we placed total trust in our parents and whoever was looking after us. Then as we journeyed through life we experienced setbacks and broken promises. Different things and events eroded our trust in others. The level of trust in society at large is also very low. For anyone who has been let down it can be hard to build the levels of trust up again. We are reminded throughout our scripture readings that God is completely trustworthy. But why do we also find it hard to trust God? Perhaps we haven't given God enough time in our lives? Perhaps God is there for us like a fire brigade, only when there is an emergency. We are encouraged to begin to put our trust in God. God will always be on our side. To believe in that is a great start.
