2 Chronicles 14:11 (NLT) -  "O Lord, no one but you can help the powerless against the mighty! Help us, O Lord our God, for we trust in you alone."  
 
There’s a beautiful song, sung by Lauren Daigle called, ‘Trust In You,’ from her album, How Can It Be. The chorus goes like this:
 
When You don't move the mountains I'm needing You to move
When You don't part the waters I wish I could walk through
When You don't give the answers as I cry out to You
I will trust I will trust I will trust in You

Miriam Webster’s dictionary defines ‘trust’ as: reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something:  one in which confidence is placed.

Miriam Webster hit the nail on the head with that definition of trust, especially when it comes to putting our trust in God. Trust is only difficult when we can’t see the end result, or when everything seems to be going against us and we can’t find the good in it all. When things are well in our lives, trusting is actually easy, we almost don’t need to trust. Life seems to be on a conveyor belt and is moving along quite nicely. But when things turn upside down, sideways, backwards, and inside out, then it’s almost like trust becomes a 4 letter word that doesn’t sit well with every fibre of our being. We want answers and we want them now. We need to know the end result will be in our favour. We need to see a glimpse of the future so we can make the right choices and plans. Trust?
 
Trust.
 
Like the lyrics to the song above, if I don’t get the results I want, if I don’t get the healing I need, if my spouse walks out on me, if the job promotion doesn’t come through, can I still trust God, can I still place my confidence in Him?
 
We put our trust in a lot of things, i.e., the government, our spouses, cars, planes, our weekly paycheck, our own wisdom and understanding, doctors, dentists, plumbers, our grocery store, but everyone one of these can and will fail, and probably disappoint us at some time or other. We are silly human beings. Our trust should be in the One whose character, ability, and strength have no flaws, have proven to be unfailing, and can be surpassed by none. Can I have confidence in God? Absolutely. Do I have confidence in God?  Trust.
 
If we were one of the 3 boys, Shadrach, Meshach, or Abednego, in Daniel 3 and was faced with the “blazing furnace” of our life, could we say with confidence like them, “You, O Lord are able to save, able to deliver, able to heal, but even if You don’t, I will not give in to doubt, I will not give in to fear, I will not bow to any other god, instead, “I will trust, I will trust, I will trust in You.”
