Who Can You Trust


Whom Can You Trust?

As for me, I look to the Lord for his help. (Micah 7:7)

Whom can you trust completely? Is there anyone in your world on whom you can depend on without reservation? Many of us have a wife or husband who comes to mind. I trust my wife implicitly, without reservation. But what if I turned my back on her and left? What if I forsook our marriage vows and moved on? As loving and forgiving as she is, I’m sure I could push her too far and fall out of her good graces. Of course, I don’t intend to ever let that happen, but the possibility for pain and disappointment exists in every human relationship.

Maybe you come from an unbelieving family, and your siblings don’t understand your faith. Can you trust them with your heart? Can you turn to them in a crisis? Is there anyone on earth without the capacity to let you down under the right set of circumstances? According to Micah, the answer is no.

“Don’t trust anyone—not your best friend or even your wife! For the son despises his father. The daughter defies her mother. The daughter-in-law defies her mother-in-law. Your enemies will be right in your own household” (Micah 7:5-6). Micah understood that people are people, no matter how close you are to them. We are flawed and often unforgiving. Our love may be genuine and true and deep, but it is not entirely without condition. Turn your back on your friend, and it won’t be long before he’ll turn his back on you.

But God is not that way. “As for me, I look to the Lord for his help,” says Micah. “I wait confidently for God to save me, and my God will certainly hear me” (Micah 7:7). People have turned their backs on God time and again, yet he has never given up on us. We have let him down over and over and over, and each time he retaliates with forgiveness. We spit in the face of his Son, and he embraces us with his love and redemption.

If you think you can fall out of God’s graces, think again. If you think you can push him so far that he’ll never accept you back, you’re wrong. If you believe his love has an ounce of condition attached to it, just look at the story of humanity.

So let me ask again. Whom can you trust completely? Only God.
