Trust is a tricky thing if you have trust issues. Trust is tricky for me. Sometimes asking for help feels more risky then simply trusting in yourself to figure it out. Be that as it may, there are times in our lives when the circumstances around us are so far outside of our control that we know we can’t do it on our own. We can’t solve it on our own. We don’t have the resources or knowledge or the power to do anything about what is happening so we must reach out for help.
When King David wrote this Psalm over 5000 years ago, he was wrestling with a situation that was too big for him to handle- and he turned to God. To Yahweh, to the King of kings and the Lord of lords. He beseeched the Holy One and prayed in Psalms 25:2, “I trust in you; do not let me be put to shame, nor let my enemies triumph over me.” NIV
He was honest.
He laid the fear of the future before the Creator.
He asked that his enemies would not triumph over him.
My friend, I want to encourage you to be honest with God, lay the unknown future before Him and ask for what you want.
The Passion Translation says it like this: “Be there for me, my God, for I keep trusting in you. Don’t allow my foes to gloat over me or the shame of defeat to overtake me.”
Then keep trusting Him, regardless of the outcome.
