You can always trust God in everything

Charles Warner | The Union Daily Times When it comes to trusting someone, there’s no one you can trust the way you can trust God. Human beings are not perfect and therefore their ability and/or willingness to be trustworthy is limited. The most honorable among us go to great links to be worthy of trust by being as trustworthy as much as is humanly possible. Even the most honorable of us can come up short, however, often not by intention but by the inability to do what we’ve promised to do. Others, however, are more than willing to violate a trust at a moment’s notice if they think it will benefit them. By doing so, they hurt those who trusted them and hurt themselves as well because soon no one will trust them and will in fact shun them leaving them alone, isolated and miserable. God, however, is perfect and because He is perfect we can place all our trust in Him, confident that He will never deliberately or even accidentally betray us, but instead keep our trust at all times and in all circumstances. This does not mean, however, that God will give us anything we want just because we ask Him to because some because some things we want are wrong. Instead, we can trust God to always do what is right in our lives even if we don’t immediately recognize that His actions are for the best.
