Trusting God Completely

In a world of chaos, sadness and hardship, why trust God?  Some factors that influence our opinion of this topic are our background, people in our lives, changing circumstances, and God's intervention.  Let's take a look at some passages of Scripture.

The Bible describes God as loving

God is love.

  • 1 John 4:10 reads, "In this is love, not that we have loved God but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins."

God is the essence of love.   I may not understand everything; however, I can trust God because He is loving.

The Bible describes God as all-powerful

God is Omnipotent.

  • Psalm 147:5 reads, "Great is our Lord and mighty in power, His understanding has no limit."

I can trust God because I am limited in power, strength and understanding.  God is not limited.

The Bible describes God as "with us"

God is with us.

  • Joshua 1:9 reads, "Have I not commanded you?  Be strong and courageous.  Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
  • 1 Corinthians 3:16 reads, "Do you not know that you are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in you?"

I can trust God because He is with me.  We can trust Him completely.
