More than Trust

‘Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. (Psalm 143:8 NIRV)

I was reading this scripture one morning and found it interesting the words ‘trust’ and ‘entrust’ were both in this verse. This sent me on a little word study. The following definitions are from Collins English Dictionary:

Trust – reliance on and confidence in the truth,worth,reliability of a person or thing; faith

Entrust – to put into the care or protection of someone.

I am familiar with learning to trust, but to entrust some situations or people completely into God’s care, is a bit more of a challenge for me.

Entrust is an active verb. For example, I will entrust (put) you into God’s total care. It no longer belongs to me but to God. I release myself, the situation, or the person completely.

However, I found there is a key to doing this. I must know God’s character; that He is faithful and good. Even if I don’t understand, He is in control and will do what is best.

So therein lies the challenge. If I really know Him, can I entrust all things both good and bad into His care?

‘Therefore let those who suffer according to God’s will do right and entrust their souls to a faithful Creator.’ (1 Peter 4:19 RSV)
