Psalm 118:8 It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Some of us have trust issues in relationships based on negative experiences in the past. We want to trust the other person, but it’s a hump we can’t seem to get over.

As we approach relationships or marriages, God is not requiring us to trust that person. He’s requiring us to trust Him in that person. That’s why it’s important that we get in relationships with like-minded believers. The Bible calls it equally yoked.

If we get into a relationship with a person who doesn’t know God or an immature believer, we’re taking a big risk of being hurt again. They don’t have to be flawless but, are they pursuing a deeper relationship with God? Are they making the effort to be led by the Holy Spirit? Are they renewing their minds with the Word of God?

We also need to talk to God to determine if the person is for us. If not, cut all ties. However, if God tells us to trust Him in that person, let go of all fears, and trust. We’re not trusting the person. We’re trusting God through them.
