God has entrusted to us a great deal.He knows that we can do all things by His grace, so He's trusting in us to trust in Him. Yet He knows our fears as well, otherwise He wouldn't assure us so often of His purposes and His presence.
We feel hurt and alone—God assures us He cares.We feel angry and resentful—God provides wisdom and strength.We feel ashamed—God grants forgiveness and comfort.
We feel anxious—God promises to supply all our needs.May He give us ears to hear, hearts to trust, and minds to rest in Him.
Our God is uniquely and ultimately trustworthy!
