Trust is of great importance since it pertains to one’s integrity, character, and ability. With that being said, trust honors a person’s character. On the other hand, distrust does the opposite. Let’s consider that, if you’ve been doing your best to become a well-respected individual by allowing the Word of God to rule every area of your life and for some reason somebody can’t trust you with something, that would be very hurtful to you since you’d feel like you are let down by that person’s ignorance and lack of trust in you.
So to a much greater degree, the same concept also applies to God. Given the fact that He’s a God who has an uncompromised integrity in certainly everything. God is deeply troubled when we cannot trust Him with our life’s problems. Our unbelief or lack of trust is equivalent to us telling Him that He cannot be trusted regardless of whom He claims Himself to be.
Trust is the essence of our relationship with God. Trust and faith are pretty much the same thing. And we’re told that God cannot be pleased without faith according to (Hebrews 11:6). Trusting Him means relying on Him and His ability to provide without reservation.
Furthermore, trusting Him means embracing completely whom He has claimed Himself to be in His infallible Word. So we have to take His Word at face value by letting it decide how we should react when things are not going well for us. The thing is that problems will always come up and that’s part of life. However, as His children, we should not let them drive us desperate as those who are hopeless due to their constant unwillingness to believe on God. See faith in God.
