Over and over in Scripture, we see God essentially asking people one thing: “Do you trust me?”

Adam and Eve needed to trust God regarding eating of the forbidden fruit.

Noah needed to trust God regarding a worldwide flood that had never before happened.

Abraham needed to trust God when he was commanded to leave his home in Ur to travel to a land that God would tell him of.

Etc., etc., etc.

Peter needed to trust the Lord when he stepped out of the boat onto the water.

Thomas needed to trust that the Lord Jesus had really been resurrected.

Etc., etc., etc.

And to be saved, everyone of us must place our trust in Jesus.

Over and over and over in Scripture, we see that God wants us to trust Him.


Because trusting Him reveals how wonderful of a God He is.
Because trusting Him relieves much of our stress and worry.
Because trusting Him gives credibly to our faith to a lost world that is watching.
Because He is worthy of our trust.

Friend, do you trust God? Are you trusting Him with whatever is going on in your life right now? Have you trusted in Jesus to save you?

If not, why not?
