Trust: God sees everything

By Nancy Ward

 “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely,” (Proverbs 3:5).

God sees everything. He sees the clerk short-changing the old man, the boy stealing the heroin, the man cheating on his wife, the girl lying to her teacher. He also sees the teenager turning in the $100 bill he finds in the parking lot, the wife praying for her non-Christian husband, the daughter loving unconditionally her siblings who taunt her. He sees everything. He is a just and loving God and that’s why we can trust in him.

His 360-degree vision takes in the full panorama of time and space. He sees behind closed doors and around corners. He sees things that happen at work, things that happen in our government, things that happen in our schools. He not only sees all in the present, he sees all that is beyond us and he sees all that is behind us. He sees it in the full context we will never see. And because he sees everything, everywhere with loving eyes, we can trust him.

Trusting God enables you to live in the truth and not be afraid to remember who you are. “Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will act,” (Psalm 37:5). You can trust in his personal call to you, it isn’t a mistake. Trust in who he created you to be in him. Trust in his call to your role in life and in your family.
