In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. 12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. 13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? Psalm 56:11-13
For most Christians, trusting God ends with salvation. We will trust God with our souls, but we won’t trust God for anything else. The Psalmist asks a great question in verse 13 – one we should all be asking. If God is able to deliver our souls from death, why can’t He keep our feet from falling? Why can’t God keep us walking in the light? Most times, we don’t trust Him with our health, our finances, our families, our jobs, or other things because we feel like we have control over those things. We know we can do nothing to save our own souls from death, but we think we can control our health, our finances, etc. But since God knows everything and He is all-powerful, why shouldn’t we trust God to take care of everything?
