“…You trust God, now trust in Me” John 14:1
Here we have Yeshua (Jesus) telling us in this verse to “TRUST IN HIM” what more can we ask for, but to have God Himself come down to earth and tell us to Trust in Him. God has told us over and over in His word to trust in Him.
YHWH specifically instructed us in Proverbs 3:5 NLT to “Trust in the LORD with ALL your heart; do not depend on YOUR OWN understanding.” (emphases mine) so we are to put all our trust in God and do not lean on or depend on our own logical/canal understanding, because our understanding does not and can not measure up to God’s way of doing things. He told us that His ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).
In order for us to be able to put our complete trust in God we must first BELIEVE that He IS and in order for us to believe that He IS we must first have FAITH. So in order know where your trust in God is, you have to examine your faith and remember faith expresses itself through LOVE (Galatians 5:6).
King David told us in Psalms 40:4 that there is joy for those who trust the LORD, and not putting their confidence in the proud, and idol worshippers. Trusting God puts you in a place of complete peace and joy knowing that all is well no matter what it may look like in the natural. God’s Power is unlimited, He spoke the universe into existence, He created man from the dust of the earth, just knowing this we should have NO problem trusting Him.
Fear is a big hindrance in us trusting YHWH completely, but that’s why He gave us His Spirit so He can lead us and guide us in all truth but we must submit to Him and allow Him to lead us. Allow Holy Spirit to lead you He always there for you, but you must be sensitive to His prompting, listen for His gentle soft voice speaking to your heart.
It is better for us to trust the LORD than to put our confidence in people (Psalm 118:8), because putting our trust in people only leads to disappointment. Jesus is not just asking us to trust Him, He is telling us to put our trust IN HIM. We may not be able to trust in people – but one thing is certain: we can trust in Jesus. With Jesus there is no failure, He doesn’t lie, He doesn’t make mistakes.
I close with this verse from Isaiah 26:4 “Trust in the LORD always, for the LORD GOD is the eternal Rock.”
LORD, we put our trust in You and You only, for we know that with You ALL things are possible, and we know we are able to do all things through You for You strengthen us to do them. LORD there is no one else for us to Trust but You in the dying world, Lord we lift our eyes to You, O God, enthroned in heaven. We look to You for You are our source we trust in You to be our provider, our deliver, our strong defender, our healer, our redeemer, our strength, our banner and our God FOREVER. WE TRUST IN YOU LORD!
PUT YOUR TRUST IN YESHUA (JESUS) HE IS YOUR STRONG DEFENDER!
In Mashiach (Christ)
