We talk a lot about trusting God. Tonight I was overwhelmed with how much God trusts us humans. To fully trust Him I think we need revelation about how much He trusts us.
I thought of the biblical greats that He entrusted the Gospel to. I thought about how He entrusted David to redeem the nation of Isreal. How He entrusted Jesus, all human, and all God at the same time to carry His redemptive message through utter pain and suffering to redeem mankind.
Paul, Gideon, Saul, Noah, the twelve disciples, even Judas. Except for Jesus Himself, these were sinful men. They messed up as much as you and I. Like our military entrusts a 50 million dollar fighter jet to the hand of a pilot getting paid 75k a year, He entrusts to us those in our care.
I have been trusted with Isaac, Isa, Max, Elora. From a business perspective, those I work with and the stewardship of the company.
And the Father trusts us knowing we are sinful and will make mistakes. It is one of the most motivating and invigorating times when we know a father trusts us, regardless of our flaws.
I remember the moments my dad expressed to me how much he trusts me. Here is the deal, the Lord isn’t standing back, far from you, waiting for you to fail. He places tremendous trust in you and will tell you when you speak with Him. He knows you have what is necessary to handle all that has been given. Even all those entrusted to you. Even the life message He has given you to share.
If you have impossible, complex situations, He gave those to you because He knew you could be trusted to see it through. Invigorating huh? To know you are trusted?
