When You Can’t Trust People

November 14, 2016

But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in him. -Jeremiah 17:7


I don’t like to admit it, but I think I have a difficult time trusting people. I have gotten better over the years, but for a long time I felt as if I couldn’t trusted any one. I couldn’t stand the thought of opening up to people.

I have made strides, but I still find myself getting extremely burnt by people that I have once trusted. It is easier to just not trust people in my book.

God has met me in my lack of trust in people. He has assured me that He is fully trustworthy. In the Bible, He is described simply by the word “Truth.”

When evaluating who I can, and cannot trust, I am reassured that the one who knows my shame, desires, and my heart is completely trustworthy.

Friend, He only speaks truth to our hearts and over our lives. God is trustworthy. Others in life may have broken your trust, but He does not. Trust him today!

Prayer: “God, thanks for being trustworthy. Help me to rely and depend on you when other people fail me. In your name I pray, Amen.”
