Trust is one of the most fragile things that we absolutely without a doubt handle so very carelessly. However at the same time it is one of the things that we ask for the most. In each and every purchase that we make by default we give our chosen corporation or company our trust. At the same time we love those that we won’t or can’t. When you stop and think about it, it’s crazy who we trust.
We would rather pay for the trust that we demand than to trust the human heart or the intentions of those around us. It seems easier to do when loyalty is not something that people want to be, nor is it something that people desire to. The challenge is trusting the right person while protecting your heart. How does a solider in battle fight up close with his enemy with only one arm and no armor? Answer, he can’t do so effectively, and ultimately, he will die.
We have all been wounded within various relationships. We have a deep need for the restoration of our trust to take place. No man is an island. We can’t make it for one second without yielding our trust to the many services that we partake of everyday, or those that live out our lives with us up close and personal. The price tag on genuine trust is far too high to pay, and far too heavy for any one person to carry. Only God is worthy of our complete trust. He can carry the weight. He never changes. He always does what He says He is going to do. He will never tell a secret.
Psalm 56:3 But when I am afraid, I will trust in You.
