Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.
Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding
Isaiah 26:4 Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.

What have you noticed about the 3 bible verses above? As what we can see, it all contains the same statement of what God want us to do, to trust Him. Well, the other question is Do we trust God with all of our hearts? Do we really believe that His promises will never be broken?
There are many bible life stories that proved how God is really worth our trust. God told Abraham that he will be the father of all nations and it all happened (Genesis 12:2). According to the book of Romans (v.4:9-12), Abraham was considered the father of those who believe and children of God. Same is true about God’s promise that He will sent Israel out of slavery and He did what He said He will. Even though the people of Israel was a kind of “pasaway” (because they always disobey God’s commandment), still God is forgiving them over and over again and still they have able to step in to the Promised Land God have prepared for them. Also the same when God foretold the coming of an Immanuel “God with us” also happened. [Therefore the Lord Himself shall give you a sign, Behold, a virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel – Isaiah 7:14]. The greatest promise God have for the people of the world that He will be with us happened.
Those are just some of the occasion happened in the timeline of the bible and there’s so many more to know. God proved to us that everything He said is true, that He is always true to His words.
How often do you/we read and meditate God’s Word which is the bible? What is the importance of reading and meditating His Words? Well, let us consider God’s Word as light and without it is darkness. Imagine walking in a room that is full of darkness, you can’t see what is surrounding you, you might get hurt and harm because you can’t see that things that must be avoided, you might get wander because of lost of direction. Compare it in a room that is full of light, you can see the things that can harm you giving you the chance to avoid it, you’ll never get wander because of the direction that guides you, which is His Word and guidance. God’s Word will guide us to wisely choose the decision that we need to do. We can trust in His Words because we know that He is true to His promises.
Do you know the life story of Samson? We’re all familiar to this. Samson is a strong man, He is the one sent to bring Israel out of slavery from the Philistine (when the time Israel is in trouble again). He was not allowed to eat grapes or raisin, drink wine or any alcohol beverages, touch a dead body and to cut his hair ( based on my research, those are their outward sign of their dedication to God for the Israelites. Sadly, Samson is not that too obedient to follow it all. He even fall in lust (sorry for the term) with Delilah, a philistine woman. Not knowing that Delilah is being paid by the philistine leader to know Samson’s secret of strength, Samson was deceived and told Delilah his secret of strength. After his hair was cut, he became weak and the philistine can already defeat him without effort, and they even blinded his both eyes. But before the end of his life, he repented and was forgiven by God. Even in the deepest of our fall, we can always proclaim God’s forgiveness everytime we repent. [If I confess my sins, God is faithful and just to forgive my sins, and cleanse me from all unrighteousness. – 1 John 1:9]

Points to Remember:

  • God is truth. There is no false in Him
  • God’s Word is truth
  • When we obey His trust, we please God with our lives
  • In every falls, God’s promise of forgiveness will never fail.
