Many Believes but Few Trusts

Here’s story that represents Belief and Trust.

There was a man who had a job in a circus. He was a walking man on the wire. When the show started, many audience were amazed when he started to walk on the wire from side to side estimated 50 meter horizontally and 100 meters vertically from the ground. The people were really amazed. They shouted, they clapped their hands but the man stopped for a while and he asked the audience “Who wants to join me up here?”
People went silent for a while. And no one answered his question. No one, but there was a woman who raised up her hand and said, “Me, I wanna join you there”.
So the woman started to walk on the wire with that man. And all the people were in a mixed emotion. Their faces couldn’t picture out.

Thus, the show ends and then the audience asked the woman, “Weren’t you afraid up there?’

Woman answered, ‘No, because I trust my husband’.

Wow! What A Big Word . TRUST.

Trust is like risk. You risk, but you’re not afraid because you know that there is someone who is with you. Holding you and guiding you.
On the other hand, We believe in God but we don’t trust Him all the time. Isn’t that true?
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
This scriptures says, we need to trust only God not our selves and not others.
Just rely on God, not on others.
Just trust the pure word of God, not the words of this world.
God has a lot of promises to us. One major is the promise of eternal life. Are we trusting Him with this free gift of life? Or doubting it?
God wants one thing from us. He calls us into one thing. The Great Commission, are we responding? Or walking out of the calling because we don’t trust Him?
Trusting Him means sacrificing.
Trusting Him means responding.
Trusting Him means going.
Trusting Him means obeying.
Let our hearts be the frontiers of trusting Him fully, not doubting but rejoicing in His presence.
Always remember that TRUST is LOVE.

Amen; great message!

We can’t truly say that we believe, if we’re finding it hard to trust. We had to first trust in the promise; before we believed that He was a God worth following! The straight and narrow is not a road, but a journey; walking with the love of God!
