Questions 2

Can God be trusted?

If so, why don’t we?

Or if we do, why is it such a struggle?

    yes God can be be trusted!!!! Do we trust Him…no not often. I think the reason why differs from person to person. Past hurts and father wounds I think are a huge reason why for alot of people. It is hard to trust God our heavenly father when our earthly father may have been absent or present but abusive (im just giving an example).

  • What Sarah said. I find God as suspect as love for this very reason. What makes it even more fun is the generational aspect. I find my own ability to be trustworthy and to love, suspect.

  • I think trust is difficult because we think we know what’s best for ourselves. It’s taken me a lifetime of experience to KNOW that trusting God is where I want to be. It’s still hard at times, but I’m learning more and more how to rest and let Him be in control.

    Of course God can be trusted! I think that one of the main reasons why many people struggle with trusting God is because they don’t want to face the facts. God tells us everything is going to be ok, but the world and our peers and SATEN tell us no, it’s not, and then the pressure comes on. We have to remember to sit back and pray, because the one person we can trust is God.

    His Word says so.

    He has proven Himself over and over again.

    For me to not to trust God is to reprogram my brain into thinking that I don’t need air in order to live. I would have to unlearn ever science book I have ever read and then somehow, rewire my brain to stop controlling my lungs from taking in air because I don’t need them anymore.

    I know I can’t see the forest through the trees. Heck, I don’t know if the forest is up against the edge of the cliff. I don’t know. Honestly, I don’t care. But God knows all of that and God is complete control.

    I absolutely trust every word in the bible and therefore believe that God is totally and completely trustworthy … in my head of course. My heart, well, let’s just say that my trust in Him increases with the measure of healing He places in that rusty, crusty ole heart of mine. My faith however, that I will one day totally trust Him is unshakeable.

    well of course God can be trusted.
    and i think everyone (atleast all Christians) know that, but the hard part is actually following through with it.
    for me, its because i know God is almighty and can get it done, but satan puts those “what if’s” in my head. what will you do if even GOD cant help, or He falls through for you?
    so my answer is, God can always be trusted.
    and i do trust Him, but sometimes in fear that if He is the almighty one, and things don’t happen… then what?
    But I believe God is ALWAYS there, even when we can’t see Him… which is soo hard to remember….

  • These are interesting and very logical points of view. Unfortunately, trust is a feeling. IMHO, as always.
