Psalms 56:3 Whenever I am afraid, I will trust in You.

The world has taught us that trust is earned. According to the word of God, that’s not true. Trust is simply given. It’s a matter of our will to trust God or someone else.

Look at it from another perspective. We’ll trust someone to prescribe us medication or operate on our bodies simply because they have the initials “M.D.” at the end of their names. That trust wasn’t earned. We don’t know if they’re educated enough to prescribe the correct medication and we haven’t seen them be successful in the surgeries of others, but we’ll put our trust in them.

As blindly as we’ll trust a doctor we just met to operate on our bodies is the same way we should trust God and trust others. God hasn’t done anything to corrupt our trust in Him and most people haven’t done anything themselves. It’s fear that causes us not to trust God or others.

Let go of fear so that you can trust God wholeheartedly, love others completely, and live freely.
