Building trust is essential in every relationship especially marriages.  You might have been hurt in the past and such relationships might have failed you several times that you held back to avoid anymore triggers.  Trust is a key part in every relationship, your employers must trust you to employ you or  your must show some reasonable position of reliability to be employable.  Friendships require trust to build healthy relationships.  Sometimes you trust someone then they stab you in the back consequently  anger,disappointments and so on creeps in gradually.  When this happens run to God and take refuge in Him.  You know what, your sole trust should be in God.  He is perfect and complete, there are no flaws in Him.  On the other side human beings are imperfect with their weaknesses and flaws.  Your refuge or place of safety should be in the Lord.  Trust God more than man and He will never forsake or fail you.

It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in humans Psalm 118:8 NIV.  

To trust God means to having complete dependence, reliance and support in Him.  It is your ability to cling to, lean on at all times and have total confidence in Him that He will see you through every problems or challenges you experience.  Trusting God to me means my wholes being (spirit, body and soul) clings to Him, even when I don’t understand what’s going on, I still lean on His own understanding and permit Him to direct my path.

My trust is fastened to God as I lift my life to Him.  And I am certain I will not be put to shame because I trust in You.  O Lord, I give my life to you.      I trust in you, my God! Do not let me be disgraced,   or let my enemies rejoice in my defeat Psalm 25:1-2.   As I let go, He takes control.  Though it may seem like I am forgotten, though it may look like I have been left behind in this race, I know certainly that He never forgets those who put their trust in Him and keeps me in perfect peace because my eyes are fixed on Him (Nahum 1:7, Isaiah 26:3-4)

You will keep in perfect peace all who trust in You, all whose thoughts are fixed on You! 4 Trust in the Lord always,
for the Lord God is the eternal Rock Isaiah 26:3-4 NLT.

Prayer

Father I thank You for today and what You have done in the past.  I pray for those who are loosing faith and trust in God at this hour, time and season that You would strengthen and give them perfect peace that surpasses all understanding.  Their eyes would be fixed on You and You alone, I pray oh Lord that they will shift their focus from the situation and trust You more because with You all things are possible.  I declare that with You all things are possible so Lord have Your way in their lives and take control in Jesus name.  Heal their hearts of every pains, bitterness and unforgiveness that they have experienced as a result of broken relationships.  You heal the broken hearted and set the captives free so where the spirit of the Lord is there is Liberty.  I declare liberty in every area of their lives and fulfillment of Your will and purpose that whatever they have asked You in Your name according to Your will they will receive it in JESUS MIGHTY NAME I PRAY and everyone says AMEN.
