“Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God; trust also in me. In my Father’s house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.” Thomas said to him, “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?” Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. If you really knew me, you would know my Father as well. From now on, you do know him and have seen him.” John 14:1-7 (NIV)
Trust In Me
Why can you place all your trust in me? You love and care for me. You lived and died for me. You are my Savior and Lord. You forgave all my sins. You cleansed all my unrighteousness. You made it so I could be adopted into your family. I am your child. You filled me with your spirit. I can now live in an intimate relationship with you. You are leading and guiding me through life. My life is in your hands. My future is under your control. You have a purpose and plan for my life. I can take shelter in you. You are my refuge in every storm. You are worthy of all my trust. Yes, I am.
Who am I that makes me worthy of your trust in me? That is a difficult question to answer. Why is that? I could start writing an answer to that question and never end. You are all I need, of that I am certain. What would you like to say about who I am right now, for your life today? You are my way through life. You are my way to heaven. You will lead me. You will guide me. You will guard me. My present and future are secure. You have a place kept and guarded in heaven for me. Yes, I do. What else? You are the truth. Nothing in you or about you is false. All the promises in your word are true. All your promises are worthy of my full acceptance. All your promises are worthy of my complete reliance. Your word has been changing my heart and transforming my mind. You have been using your word to mold and shape my life. Your word has been helping me to place all my trust in you. You speak the truth into my life. Yes, I do. What else? You are the life. What does that mean? Without you, and before I came to believe in you, before I came to love you, I was dead in my trespasses and sins. I was without hope in the world. But you were unwilling to let me live a life without you, both now and forever. You gave your life so I could have life. Yes, I did. You are my light and life everyday as I love, follow and serve you. Yes, I am. So, these are reasons why I can and will place all my trust in you. That is very good.
Lord, I will place my trust in you. You love and care for me. My life is in your hands. My eternal future is secure and kept and guarded in heaven with you. You are the way, the truth and the life. I will follow and serve you. I will live my life with and for you. Amen
