Ps 34:2, 9, 17-20
A TRUSTWORTHY GOD
“God is trustworthy.” – John 3:33
While I walked slowly along the supermarket aisle, my son noticed me calculating from my cellphone every item I put in the cart. He asked prudently, “Mom, are you computing everything so you won’t spend too much money?” “Yes,” I said. I explained that we only had a limited budget for the grocery. I assured him though, that God always provides for the family no matter what happens. Instead of shielding him from the truth, I let him understand the real situation and what we can learn from it.
Proverbs 3:5-6 instructs us, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight you paths.” Sometimes, we do not understand our circumstances. Uncertainty of the future, lack of provisions or fear of the unknown make us anxious. But God is trustworthy. We can hope for His saving grace all the time. Blessed Mother Teresa articulated it best: “God will never, never, never let us down if we have faith and put our trust in Hi. He will always look after us. So we must cleave to Jesus.”
Are you worried about life? Listen to St. Augustine’s words: “Trust the past to God’s mercy, the present to God’s love and the future to God’s providence” –Dondi
Let us pray:
O God, You are trustworthy! I place my life in Your hands and am at peace. Amen.
