It’s a Scary Word: Trust

Has God ever asked you to trust Him?

If not, let’s ask ourselves ‘why not?’ Maybe you have never taken that step of faith in trusting what Jesus Christ did on the Cross of Calvary? You can make Him your personal Lord and Savior right now! Would you like too?

If you are a child of God–for any length of time, living on His Words for life, communication is happening between the two of you, then at some point in time God has asked you, “Do you trust Me?” or maybe He has told you, “Trust Me.”

How did it go?


We must understand that our trust is the main thing God is pursuing as He develops our root system. Trust is what God is building through the process, and trust is what will get us through the process.

Trust has two basic elements:

  1. Intimacy
  2. Dependence

Intimacy and dependence are what Jesus was talking about when He told us to remain in Him just as He remained in the Father. He wants us to develop the ability to walk in deep, unbroken intimacy with Him and to depend on Him as He trains and empowers us to become trustworthy partners in His work on earth.

The only way He can build this root system of abiding connection is by taking us through a process that asks again and again, “Do you trust Me?”

  • Every time we say, “I trust You,” our root system grows.
  • That’s how we thrive as He prepares us to bear lasting fruit.

Trust doesn’t seem so scary any more when God is asking, does it?

In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowed.}
