Building Trust

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.—PROVERBS 3:5–6 NIV

Many corporations send their employees to leadership training courses in the hope that they will develop better working relationships. One exercise takes place on a rope course. A person is buckled into a harness on a high platform then falls into open space, trusting their team members to guide them safely back to the ground.

If we can trust people with our lives while dangling in midair, why is it so difficult to put our trust in a loving heavenly Father? Perhaps it’s because we can’t see God. Trust—what some call “blind faith”—is not easily attained. It comes after we’ve built a record with others over time.

To trust God, we have to step out in faith. The adage “let go and let God” sounds simple. It isn’t—but it works. Try this: Challenge yourself to trust God with one detail in your life each day. Build that trust pattern and watch Him work.

He won’t let you down. He holds you securely in His hand. He is your hope for the future.

Dear Father, I want to rely on You. Help me learn to trust You this day.
