He Can Be Trusted

The little girl walks beside her Father, hand in his. The path is unfamiliar. The thought bothers her. As she ponders this, her face grows troubled.

“Daddy?” she asks. Her little chin quivers.

“Yes sweetie?” He smiles down at her warmly, his heart bursting with how precious she looks next to him.

“How do I know if I’m going the right way?” Her panicked eyes search his as the fear is uncovered.

“Just keep your hand in mine, princess. I know where we’re going.”

The worried expression melts into a trusting smile. Her grip tightens. Peace washes over her. Her Father can be trusted.

 

Oh, that I would just understand this picture.

  1. The devil tries to get us to doubt god and His Word. The devil wants us to give up on god, to not trust Him, to not expect Him to do what He said in His Word.

    We must not give up! God can be trusted!

    The Creator of all what we see, and all that we don’t see, can be trusted to handle whatever we face. God is not a man that He should lie. Whatever He says comes to pass! God is trustworthy. I have to remind myself not to be moved by my circumstances. Even when it looks like He’s failed, God will not fail me.

    1. It’s amazing how many times I’ve felt that God has “failed” me… yet I turn around years later and see that at the very point where I thought he had let things spiral out of control, is the very place where he worked the MOST and brought about the MOST freedom for me (and others). It just doesn’t happen instantly.
