Would You Trust Someone You Didn’t Know?

Would You Trust Someone You Didn't Know?

Would you TRUST someone you didn’t KNOW to housesit for you? I doubt it.

Would you TRUST someone you didn’t KNOW to manage your affairs? I doubt it.

Would you TRUST someone you didn’t KNOW to babysit your children? I doubt it.

Would you TRUST someone you didn’t KNOW to give you wise counsel? I doubt it.

Would you TRUST someone you didn’t KNOW to__________________________? I doubt it. Why not?

Without KNOWING someone, their background, track record, experience or skills, you would never think of ENTRUSTING someone or something of value to them.

Why? Because you can’t TRUST someone you don’t KNOW.

Would you TRUST God, ENTRUST yourself, those you love, your problems, decisions and needs to God if you didn’t really KNOW Him? I doubt it.

Trust & Know 2

Psalm 9:10 says, “Those who KNOW Your name will TRUST in You.”
Isaiah 26:3 says, “You will keep in perfect peace all those who TRUST in You whose thoughts are fixed (know) on You. TRUST in the Lord always!
Psalm 33:21 says, “In Him our hearts rejoice, for we are TRUSTING in His holy name.”

What areas of your life are you having a hard time TRUSTING God with and why? Could it be that you struggle with TRUSTING GOD because you don’t really KNOW Him? OK, be honest with yourself…how often do you doubt God’s wisdom, provision, protection, love, goodness, sovereignty, faithfulness or His Word? Hosea 6:3 says, “Oh, that we might KNOW the Lord! Let us press on to KNOW Him!”

Be assured, the more you KNOW God – the more you will TRUST Him and His promised, perfect peace will be yours!
