Trust never comes easy. It takes time and effort. No wonder trust is earned, and one must prove themselves trustworthy. 

While trusting people is difficult, we can TRUST GOD anytime and always. 

As we start a new year, we explore five key reasons why we can trust God. 

1) God knows and calls you by name 

Indeed, God knows and calls you by name. Here’s what the Bible says in Isaiah 43:1, 

But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob,

 And He who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by your name; You are Mine.

It’s so comforting to know that God knew us before we were formed in the womb (Jeremiah 1:5)

God says you belong to Him. A powerful enough reason to trust in God. 

2) God is faithful 

While humankind may not always be true, it is not the case with God. 

God is faithful to His Word and promises. Thus, He can be trusted. Even when we are unfaithful, God is faithful 

If we are faithless,

He remains faithful;

He cannot deny Himself (2Tim 2:13)

God’s faithfulness endures from one generation to another (Psalms 119:90) 

It’s written in Numbers 23:19,

God is not a man, that He should lie,

 Nor a son of man, that He should repent.

 Has He said, and will He not do?

 Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good?

3) God is always with you 

God will never leave, forsake, or abandon you. You can rest assured that while man can forsake you, God is always there, with you and for you. 

The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged (Deuteronomy 31:8)

 …and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” (Matthew 28:20) 

He has promised, and He fulfills all His promises even in 2023, He will do it.

4) God has a plan for you 

Whether you have made plans for the new year or not, you can be assured that God has good ground plans for you this year.

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope (Jeremiah 29:11) 

God is wise and sees the big picture from start to finish. You can be limited but God is NOT. He knows both the present and the future. He also knows every detail in all situations and how to work everything out for your good this year.

5) God will fight for you 

God has promised that you won’t be doing life alone. 

When battles face you, He has promised to fight them for you. 

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace (Exodus 14:14)

The Lord your God who goes before you will Himself fight on your behalf, just as He did for you in Egypt before your eyes… (Deuteronomy 1:30) 

More good news is that God will go ahead of you and deals with your enemies. You can also trust that He will be your rear guard.

We pray that you’ll trust God in 2023 and experience his faithfulness and goodness always.
