Who do we trust the most? Who do we go to first for advice about anything and everything? Is it a spouse, best friend, parent, pastor or a professional? Are any of these folks omniscient? Or, perhaps we trust our own problem solving abilities above all others? I mean, if we analyze a problem and allow it to keep us up at night for long enough—we’ll eventually figure it out—right?

Unfortunately, we often choose this painful process when all the while God gives His children a better option. We can trust our omniscient, loving and omnipotent Father for every decision! But, in order to have His guidance, we must release our death grip on trusting ourselves and everyone else. If our life is riddled by worry and anxiety then, clearly, our trust is not in God because—He doesn’t worry. He’s seen our past, sustains our present and knows our future. When we know Him, we know He will deliver us from trouble.

In the meantime—He is with us through our trouble.

One of God’s many promises is beautifully stated in Psalms: “Because he holds fast to me in love, I will deliver him; I will protect him, because he knows my name. When he calls to me, I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble; I will rescue him and honor him.” (91:14-15)

We “hold fast” to God in love, when we passionately seek to be close to Him. To be close to Him, we must rid ourselves of the things which separate us from Him and passionately seek to know Him. The more we know Him, the more we want to know Him. We come to the point where nothing in the world matters as much to us as He does. We learn that we can fully trust Him. His guidance becomes our most important life line. We seek His direction before we seek our own or ask anyone else. Our Heavenly Father is the one we can trust with every decision!
