How Can I Trust What I Can’t See?

May 18, 2015

“I will say of the LORD, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.'” – Psalm 91:2

In this day and age, we often hear people say, “I just can’t trust anyone anymore!” And on the surface, that might sound true. But think about all the different people we do entrust our lives to, without even thinking about it. We trust pharmacists to give us the right pills from a prescription we can’t read. We trust pilots we don’t know to take us to the right destination, believing that they know how to fly that baby exactly where we need to go. As we sit in traffic on the interstate, we trust our lives to engineers and road construction crews, believing the bridges will hold.

Yet, people have trouble trusting God. They often say, “I can’t see Him.” Do we see the engineers who designed the bridge? Do we know the pilots? Do we really know what the pharmacist is putting into our prescriptions? Not usually. Yet God, our Creator, who loves us more than anyone, who even sacrificed His Son for us to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life, is difficult to trust. It’s amazing. It just doesn’t make sense to trust imperfect men and not to trust a perfect God.

Let’s change that today. Get to know God in Jesus Christ. We can always trust Him – with our lives now and forever.
