Over time of broken trust in people it became issues in trusting in God also.
Having faith in God the unseen creator of all things we see today is tough at times when there are trust issues in the soul of broken trust in humanity.
But, God word proclaims I shouldn’t trust in the flesh/humanity as it is imperfect, it is flawed, it is conditional, broken, wounded, etc.
So by doing so that opened me to hurts and wounds that came from my relations with people, that spilled over to my relationship with God.
God is faithful, trustworthy, dependable, on time, ever present, not as man that would lie, fulfills his word, keeps his promises.
So what do I do when I have deeply rooted trust issues?
Begin to progress toward trusting in God and the God in people again. I saw this quote alot monday and it just resonnated:
Faith is taking the first step eveb when you don’t see the whole staircase. Martin Luther King Jr.
The way to begin to trust is by risking the first step by faith that God and the God in the person will lead you the right way.
My Pastor Juanita Gibbs quotes Joyce Meyer in the regard of “do it afraid!” Then she goes on to say take the step of faith that God will meet you as you walk in faith, walk as the spirit leads you as He leads you trust in Him.
The positive God given influences in my life have aided in my beginning to trust in people again and God again. Where there is any bond of connection trust is important Pastor tells me. So, I need my trust to grow to be able to have good relationships with people and God.
As trust grows my measure of faith can be exercised more and become more effective in my spiritual journey.
