Do You Trust Him


“Mama,” yelled Alayna… “Kayla won’t give me my offering jar back! It’s mine and she won’t give it back!” I asked Alayna if Kayla could play with it for a few minutes. Alayna continued to argue her case. “Kayla said she won’t ever give it back to me! That she’s going to keep it forever!” I then asked Alayna, “Do you trust me?” “But Mama!” “No buts, do you trust me enough to know that I will take care of you and the situation? All you needed to do was let me know and I’ll take care of it. You might not get the jar back right when you want it but in my time, the right time, I will get it and return to you what is yours.”

In the middle of my lecture I heard God speak to me! “Do you trust me?” If we truly trusted God then we wouldn’t get so upset when things get taken from us, because we would know God has it under control. We wouldn’t throw a fit and continue to argue our case to God.

We call ourselves Christians, which means we have faith there is a God. The true test comes when we put our faith into action and trust Him with our things and our life. While faith says “He can…,” trust says “He is… and I will think and act accordingly!”

After we take the time to share our heart with our Heavenly Father, we should know it is taken care of. The answer or solution might not come when you want it, but at the right time, the perfect time, He will return to you what is yours.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going.” Hebrews 11:8
