One of the most humbling and simultaneously empowering realties we can embrace is God’s trust in us. I would not characterize humanity as generally trustworthy. We are trusted, but not trustworthy. I do not think I will ever understand why God would trust us, but I do find there is a direct relationship between my trustworthiness and my sense of being trusted. When people expect that I can be trusted I find myself behaving as if they’re right!
You are trusted just by virtue of the fact that you are a human being. Let this reality be something you allow yourself to enter into. If you realize you are trusted you may find yourself doing things that demonstrate trustworthiness. May we all find ourselves acting out of an awareness of being trusted.
“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who is against us? He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?” -- Romans 8:32, NASB
