I remember watching the Disney animated movie Aladdin. Twice in it Aladdin says to Princess Jasmine, “Do you trust me?” The first time she instinctively says, “Yes.” He has done nothing really for her to trust him. Likewise, he has done nothing to prove he can’t be trusted. I think most times, we give people the benefit of the doubt and will trust them a little to see if we can trust them more. The second time Aladdin asks Jasmine this question, the question sounds familiar (even though he’s in disguise) and she says yes again.
Last week Diane and I got to have breakfast with Todd, the person who is leading our trip to Haiti. He showed us an itinerary, he teared up when he talked about the people there, and there was another pastor having breakfast with us who testified about the trips to Haiti he’d been on with Todd in the past. Todd told us we would try not to travel after dark because sometimes there are problems on the road after dark. I trust him to keep my wife, son, and me as safe as possible. But ultimately our safety is not in Todd’s hands.
I heard an amazing song this week by JJ Heller. You should watch the video below when you’re done reading this blog. The title is, “I don’t know what You’re doing, but I know who You are.” When we realize who God is, when we understand that this is the Creator of everything, and He formed us in our mother’s womb… When we know who He is, we don’t have to know exactly what he’s doing. We can trust Him. I know I can trust God. He has proven Himself over and over to me.
Do you trust Him?
