It’s a Trust Issue

Posted by heavensembassy on August 10, 2009

The center verse of the Bible is Psalm 118:6 “It is better to trust in the LORD(I AM that I AM) than to put confidence in people.”

Trust is a highly valued amenity in any relationship. And ironically, its value becomes more apparent after it has been misguided, even if only slightly so. For it is at the point where one’s trust has been betrayed that a piece of who they are ceases to exist or dies. That portion of innocence–a portion where the perspective that optimistically envisioned people as trustworthy prevails–is carried away by pallbearers into oblivion. And it leaves in its spot a sore that evolves into a tough, feelingless callous. 

And from the tone of the Psalms passage, the psalmist is reflecting on a personal mistrusting of someone. For the poet cries “out of my distress I called on the LORD.” When he says my distress, I believe that word encompasses a time when no one else could assist him, a time when the people who were supposed to be there to support him were absent, a time when he felt deserted and alone. It was then that he cried unto the I AM (the LORD). The One that does not change, realizing that it is better to trust in God than to put confidence in people. 

So in the words of the great hymnal, “Trust in Him who will not leave you,/whatsoever years may bring./ If by earthly friends forsaken,/ still more closely to Him cling.”
