“Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God." Psalm 20:7 NIV
Everyone trusts something. The question is, what, or who do you trust?
Today, our society has become more sceptical of everyone and everything.
People don’t trust the government. Employees don’t trust employers. Customers don’t trust businesses. And let’s be honest, in many families spouses don't trust each other anymore.
When you get down to the bottom of the decline of trust today, you’ll find that our society’s “truth decay” is a big part of it.
Truth and trust go hand in hand. You trust people who tell you the truth, and you don’t trust people who tell lies.
Our lack of trust causes tremendous stress in life. We were born to trust. God wired us with the capacity and desire to trust in something greater than ourselves because He wanted us to have a relationship with Him.
The Bible has a word for whatever we place our trust in rather than God. The Bible calls it an “idol.”
God’s Word says that for our own good, we need to stay away from idols: “For your own good do not sin by making for yourselves an idol in any form” (Deuteronomy 4:15b-16a GNT).
Model for your community what it means to trust God.
