We are supposed to trust God. After all, He’s the most trustworthy person we’ll ever know! There are plenty of life lessons we learn as Christians about trusting God, both from the Bible and our own experiences. But sometimes we don’t talk about how God trusts us, and whether or not He can.

In 1 Thessalonians 2:4-6 and 1 Timothy 1:11-12 we see Paul talking about being entrusted with the Gospel. (For a bit more on that: Entrusted Deposit)

In Matthew 25:14-30 we see a parable about a master entrusting servants to steward and invest for him, like God gives us abilities, skills, and resources to use for His Kingdom.

In James 4:2-4 we see that sometimes God can’t and won’t give us things, because we ask for the wrong things for the wrong reasons and wouldn’t use them correctly.

In John 2:24-25 we see Jesus not trusting or having faith in the people that had come to Him (look up the original Greek here, it’s interesting), because He knew He shouldn’t.

In Luke 16:10-13 we see Jesus talking about trust in accordance or proportion to faithfulness.

By the way you currently live your life, how much is God able to trust you? How much can He trust you to carry, to hold, to handle, to share, to invest? If you are faithful in little, God can trust you with more. If you are unfaithful with little, God cannot trust you with more.
