Who Do You Trust?

How does one do it?  To put your life in the hands of another, is something that I have a hard time doing without knowing the person first. If my kids are involved then they better have the greatest references and previous experience, so that I can have them checked and double checked.  I don’t like the idea of handing my kids to complete strangers and assume that they know what they are doing.

And yet, there are those who save lives everyday.  Lives that they do not know.  You know them as doctors, nurses, firefighters, and police officers.  There are some in that list that are willing to risk their own lives in order to save yours.  These are noble and tireless jobs that people have chosen to live out.  They will try everything within their means, to make sure that you and I are safe for all the tragic things that can happen to a person.

There is one though, that does know you.  He knows everything about you.  All your secrets.  All your triumphs.  He waits for you. He wants to save you.  So much so that He did do all that was needed in order to save you.  He allowed His only Son to be tortured and hung on the cross, all so you can live.  If I had to allow any of my sons to go through that I don’t think I would stay sane.  John 3:16,17  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

The wonderful part of all of that is, that you can be anywhere, doing anything, and you can be saved by believing in Him, Jesus.  I have never needed to ask for references or do a back ground check.  Yet there are those who still do. I give my children to Him with a grateful heart.  When my children were little it was hard for them to understand how to trust God with their lives when they could not physically see Him.  When they would question as to why something happened or how something that seemed impossible happened, my response has always been, that was God working. They accepted the answer and went on with life. As they have grown, they have learned that He is in everything around them.  They see Him everywhere and in everything.  They trust Him with their lives.  I have no doubt that they will for the rest of the time God allows them here on the earth.  The perspective of a child is something to marvel at.  When they understand something, even if it is just scratching at the surface of it, they accept it with a whole heart.  As adults, we tend to let other things or thoughts get in our way of seeing.  Matthew 18:3,4  and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven.  Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  

So how does one do it?  Just believe, even if it is just a little surface scratching.  Then accept what you believe.  If you are still unsure, then by all means do a background check, ask you friends and neighbors about Him.  He’ll be waiting.

  3. I like the analogy with the background check. I do believe He comes with outstanding references, all contained in one mighty Book. Great post for meditation.
