Trusting God Feb 03 2008


"And those who know Your name will put their trust in You, for You, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek You." - Psalm 9:10

Isn't it amazing all the people we entrust our lives to every week? We trust pharmacists to give us the right pills from a prescription we can't read. We trust pilots we don't know to fly us to the right destination, believing that they know how to fly that baby exactly where we need to go. As we sit in traffic on the interstate, we trust our lives to engineers and road construction crews, believing the bridges will hold.

Yet people have trouble trusting God.

They often say, "I can't see Him." Do we see the engineers who designed the bridge? Do we know the pilots? Not usually. Yet God, our Creator who loves us more than anyone, who even sacrificed His Son for us to have forgiveness of sin and eternal life, is difficult to trust.

It's amazing. It doesn't make sense to trust imperfect men and not to trust a perfect God.

It does sound crazy but we all are guilty of this everyday. I dont know who installed my brakes when my truck was built but I trusted him to do a good job. I do know God and I trusted him to save my soul and I believe one day I will be with him in Heaven.

I am not perfect and I pray for my friends who need to be saved and make comments about the bible not being true.

This certainly gives you food for thought. If you are an Atheist, you deny the existence of God. I believe that we all should respect our respective beliefs. I don't believe that Atheists will be punished by God. You cannot MAKE a person believe in whatever subject you choose to make a point. It took me 66 years before I could say in public: "I have faith in God, although He is unknowable". Every person on earth has faith in something. My message is that we should never try to impose our belief on others. If we have faith in God, great! If someone has faith in his/her belief that God does not exist, that belief must also be respected. Having said this, I fully agree with this devotional and thank you for this.

Frits,
I do believe that we need to respect others right to believe how they believe but the Bible does tell us that we are to seek the salvation of others. We dont need to be rude or mean to them but we do need to show godly love to them. The other comment you made about God not punishing the Atheist well according to the Bible they will go to Hell for not believing in him. This is the ultimate punishment.

Jerry, I am in agreement with you according to how I read the Bible, however I think you might want to clarify about how we are to seek the salvation of others. It is our place to get the gospel message out but it is God who is ultimately responsible for salvation. He draws people to want to know Him and we can not make people choose to go with Jesus. We still need to treat people with the love of Christ no matter which way they choose. That is sometimes a challenge for me and I could do better in showing Christ's love to people.

We "blindly" trust people driving in on-coming traffic to stay over in their lane. Sometimes they betray the trust.
God is much more dependable.

Janice,
What I mean about seeking the salvation of others is just as you said. We are to get the gospel to them and to make sure it is done in love. We are to be concerned about even the stranger we come in contact with. I am bothered when people who claim to be Christians make statements about not caring whether someone is saved or not. I do realize sometimes we get weary in our work for Christ and think there is no use testifying to even our enimies but we are compeled to so. Have a blessed day.
