Why God Has To Be Trusted Above All
Trust is undoubtedly a very important element since it relates to a person’s own image, character, integrity, and ability to be relied on. One major aspect about trust is that a credible individual always feels honored and humbled when he’s trusted with something. Conversely, when such person cannot be trust, this brings hurts and troubles.
So to personalize that, let’s say that you have been doing all your best to follow the teachings of the Word of God by letting them influence your way of living immensely, and for some reason someone that you know quite well cannot trust you, you’d surely be hurt terribly by that. The reason is that you’re let down out of ignorance and a lack of trust despite of your great reputation.
Thus to a much greater degree, the same thing also applies to God. As corrupted we are as humans, we can feel what it is like when cannot be trusted. Imagine for a God who has an absolute integrity in everything. A God who’s operating infinitely above the very weaknesses we’re subject to as humans.
When God cannot be trusted, He’s deeply hurt by that because He’s not honored as He’d like to be honored as a result of our unbelief. It’s also indicative of us telling Him that He’s not trustworthy regardless of what He’s able to do and everything He has said about Himself with respect to His willingness to help us.
The core foundation of our relationship with God is trust. So that’s the main reason why the bible clearly states that without faith it is impossible to please God according to (Hebrews 11:6). Bear in mind, faith and trust are pretty much the exact same thing. He wants us to rely on Him without reservation since He’s the only One is fully capable of meeting all our needs. See without faith it is impossible to please our God.
