Who Do You Trust?


"Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him" (Job 13:15).

Before he hit it big with the Tonight Show, Johnny Carson was the host of a day time TV quiz show called. "Who Do You Trust?" The premise was simple. A couple would be the contestants and Carson would ask a question for a certain amount of money. Before asking each question he would pose another question. "Who do you trust, you or your wife?" It made for some funny situations.

Society often shouts the question, "Is truth truth?" I think this may be the wrong question to ask. The right one ought to be, "Is God God?" This is the most basic and ultimate question! If God is God, then truth is truth. The 1993 movie Rudy is about a young man who tries to get into Notre Dame U. to play on the football team. After much frustration, he goes to a priest and suggests to him that maybe he has just not prayed enough. The priest's response is a good one. He said, "In my 30 years in the ministry I have learned that there is one basic truth of life...God is God, and I am not." If God is God, He can. If God is God, He will. This ought to be our faith and our life.

In the Book of Ezekiel there are approximately 65 uses of the phrase, "Then they will know that I am the Lord." We all need a "center" to our lives. That center ought to be the Lord. The blood, bone, and muscle of life is God. He is the real issue of life. That man was created in God's image is a maxim of our faith. Unfortunately, man has often tried to reverse this and try to create God in his.

Because "God is God and I am not," two things ought to result. We ought to trust in God with all our hearts, and obey what He says through His Word. God does not explain Himself, and faith doesn't supply the answers. What our faith does is to allow us to live without the answers. Our faith allows us to answer the question, "Who Do You Trust." As we read today's verse, we find that Job had the answer. "Yet will I trust Him." The truth be said, GOD CAN BE TRUSTED!

Have a great day...Make a difference...Love mark Phil. 4:11
