Ironic Trust

Christians have faith in a large variety of things. We are very trusting people. For example, when we go out to eat we have faith that there is nothing wrong with the food we are eating. Or, if we fly in an large commercial airplane, we have faith in the pilot whom we most likely have never met and know no very little about. When we take extended trips we trust that the gas stations we will need to continue our journey will actually have gas despite the fact we never called a head of time to check if this is so (in fact, we don’t even check to make sure there are gas stations where we are heading; we assume and trust). The list goes on. There are countless other regular things that we never doubt or have second thoughts about.

Think about this…

How much more should we trust God. Isn’t it incredible that we have faith in things in which, compared to God, there is significant reasons to doubt? Yet on the other hand we struggle to trust God in our everyday circumstances. Our exemplified reasoning is rather poor and ironic.
