Trust Is A Gift

Trust Is A Gift

 

“Love isn’t selfish or quick tempered. It doesn’t keep a record of wrongs that others do. Love rejoices in the truth, but not in evil. Love is always supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting”

(1 Corinthians 13:5-7 CEV)

 

Just right after I said to someone once “Trust is not just given to you; you earn it”, the Spirit of God interrupted me and said, “No, son, you’re wrong. You don’t earn trust; trust is a gift.” I was surprised because, prior to that time, I thought trust was earned. But here was God saying no man could earn trust. The Lord then guided me through the scriptures and I saw things I didn’t realize and came to the conclusion that trust was indeed a gift as He had taught me.

 

 

No man in himself deserves to be trusted no matter how trustworthy he seems. If you’re honest to yourself, you’ll discover that even you are not totally trustworthy. There may have been times for example when you said you were going to pray for someone, and you didn’t. What if that one’s life for whom you were to pray depended solely on your prayers? But God, nevertheless, has chosen to trust you with the Gospel (2 Corinthians 5:18).

 

 

The Bible says the glorious gospel of the blessed God has been committed unto our trust (1 Timothy 1:11), not because we earned it but because God chose to trust us to take His message of salvation to the ends of the earth. When I think about this, I’m touched by the love of God. He paid such a great price for our salvation by sending His Son to die, and afterwards committed the Gospel into the hands of men and women who didn’t deserve to be trusted. He counted us faithful, and entrusted us with the Gospel, why? It’s because trust is a gift!

 

 

This is something that friends, co-workers, and spouses need to learn. People don’t qualify for your trust. You trust them because you love them and you expect the best of them. The man who can trust another is greater than the one he trusts, because trust helps him gain a level of faith to make provisions for the errors of others.

 

Those who can’t trust others are men of small minds. When you begin to see the way God sees, you’ll start learning to trust people and not rate them according to who they are and what they do (2 Corinthians 5:16), but according to your expectation of them.

 

Prayer

 

Dear Father,

thank you for giving me your trust as a gift. I operate in this high of level of life today by choosing to trust others as a gift, whether or not they deserve it. I make provisions for their errors and see them with the eyes of love,

in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
