Trusting God

God is love: I think we have to realize this before we can completely trust Him.

Sometimes we think we know what is best for us. And we are afraid to let God take complete control of our lives because we are afraid of what He might do. We are afraid the He might close the door when we want to go through it. But if He closes the door, He does it for our own good.

How do I know this?

Because He loves us. He would never do anything to hurt us because He loves us.

Take for example a child who is running towards the street. To them it looks like a fun place to play because they don’t realize they could get hit by a car. But the mother of the child know the danger, realizes that her child might get hurt. So the mother quickly goes and prevents her child from getting in the street. She did this because she loves her child. She didn’t do this to spoil her child’s fun, but she did it to protect it from harm.

Sometimes we are like that little child running towards the street. We are oblivious to the danger we are heading into. But God, like the mother, sees the danger and He protects us from that danger because He doesn’t want us to get hurt. Because He loves us!

Think about this: God, who created the universe, the stars, the sky, and the sea, He loves us and cares enough to take interest in our everyday lives. The One who is King of kings and Lord of lords loves you and loves me!

When we realize God’s amazing love for us, then it is not so hard to trust Him. Because we know that He will do what He know is best for us. We can only think we know the right thing for us. God knows the right thing for us.
