Trusting Yahweh

If I tell you that I trust you, it could mean more than one thing. I could be saying that I trust you morally – I expect you to tell me the truth and to treat me properly or to pay me back what I lend you.

I could be trusting your skills – I believe that you can repair my car or my computer or give me a haircut that won’t embarrass me. I might be trusting your knowledge – that when you say something is true, you have researched it and it really is true. This might not be a trust you are worthy of in every question, but a only certain area of thought. You may have perfect information regarding traffic laws, but severe misinformation regarding who Jesus is.

What level of trust do you have for Yahweh? How does the score shift from category to category? Do you trust His knowledge, but not His protection? How about His intentions regarding our health, or our provision? Will He tell me about something in time to be prepared for it?

If we are praying for someone to be healed, our faith will be based on more than one area of trust. Do we believe that Jesus has the power to heal the problem? How about His desire to heal? What specifically will He do when we ask for healing?

There is a place where you can park your trust of Him that will affect all the other places. If you decide to fasten your trust in His love, it will build the rest of your trusting and lead you to a place where His love leads you into revelation about what He will do and how to agree with Him for it; He will work in your heart to want what He wants. And then your trust will not be disappointed.

This is what the Lord says:

The wise must not boast in his wisdom;
the mighty must not boast in his might;
the rich must not boast in his riches.
But the one who boasts should boast in this,
that he understands and knows Me—
that I am the Lord, showing faithful love,
justice, and righteousness on the earth,
for I delight in these things.
This is the Lord’s declaration.
