It’s possible to be in a relationship with someone and love him, but not trust him. Especially if that trust has been violated, such as in the case of adultery within a marriage or even a dating relationship where someone has not been totally honest in certain situations.
A lot of times, when it comes to people, trust has to be earned. And in the case of an affair, trust has to be restored. Why? Because people are imperfect, and people make mistakes.
However, I know a man who IS Perfect, and never makes mistakes, and His name is Jesus. This man is the author of love, the author and finisher of our faith, He’s all that and more, however in knowing all this, how many of us can truly say that we both love AND trust this man?
God has not given you any reason to doubt His love or faithfulness towards you. He is not a man that He should lie. He can’t lie, because satan is the author of lies but God is the founder of truth.
His love is unconditional and unwavering, so why is it that many of us, singles, say we love God with our lives, and even our lifestyles, but when it comes to trusting God to send us the mate that He has for us we sometimes lose faith, lose hope, or doubt that it will ever happen for us?
One minute we’re up, praising God and getting our shout on about how good He is and how Boaz is right around the corner, and the next minute we’re down, wondering when and if it’ll ever really happen for us.
God said He will give you the desires of your heart, and a lot of time a desire to marry has been placed in your heart by God. He said all His promises are yea and in him amen, and He promised that you and your seed will be blessed. God has not left you out of the equation, and He sees your tears and knows your heart. You just have to hold on, trust God and keep believing and don’t give up hope that there is a man out there for you.
So I want to encourage you today to not just love God, but also trust Him. Why, because He’s God, He’s Perfect, and His Word is true. Be consistent and steadfast in your faith, and stay built up by the Word of God so as to not give the enemy any room to cause doubt, and know that I love you with the love of the Lord as we run this race together.
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
