Have you ever put your trust in someone and been disappointed or let down? Have you put your complete trust in a person and have been crushed to the point you have uttered these words “I will never trust anyone again”? To an extent this is true in one aspect, we should ONLY put our complete trust in God. He is the only one who deserves our complete trust because He will always keep His Word.
The only problem with this phrase is it hinders us from having the life God desired for us to have. If you have been hurt by someone, maybe an ex boyfriend, ex husband, family member or friend and you hold onto this phrase tightly you will never experience freedom in Christ. For this reason, you will always be looking over your shoulder, always questioning and always assuming the worst in any future relationship or you will completely run from starting a new relationship period. Holding onto this phrase will become your security blanket, it will become your motto of living, change your character and have you holding onto past hurts. To think one little phrase comes with a load of baggage to carry on your back.
Letting go of this phrase doesn’t make what the person did right, it allows you to forgive them and the situation that way YOU can be FREE. Free to live life to the fullest, free to experience God’s goodness, His joy, His blessings, His love, His Mercy and His grace. I don’t know about you, but this sure sounds like a wonderful life ahead when that simple little phrase “I will never trust anyone again” is out of our daily life. It’s like removing sunglasses and realizing its not cloudy and gloomy but a beautiful sun-shining day. We are able to embrace the victorious life God has designed for us, the beautiful life full of His blessings. How amazing is that. To be a testimony for Christ as we receive ALL the wonderful things we can’t begin to fathom at one time. Remember God’s thoughts are higher than ours. It may seem like a struggle right now, but trust God for He knows what He has waiting for you. Just trust Him and see what glorious things God will do for you, in you and through you. As you abide in Him He will always provide.

“For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love he predestined us for adoption to sonship through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will, in order that we, who were the first to put our hope in Christ, might be for the praise of his glory. For this reason, ever since I heard about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers. I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. And God placed all things under his feet and appointed him to be head over everything for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills everything in every way.” (Ephesians 1:4-6, 11, 12, 15-23 NIV)
