We teach our children not to trust strangers, when really what we are teaching is to assess someone’s character. How do we as adults determine if someone is trustworthy? How do you decide if you can trust God? You must examine His character. These 16 Bible Verses prove God’s character is trustworthy.

Don’t talk to strangers… Don’t open the door when you don’t know who is there… Don’t accept a ride from someone you don’t know.

These are the lessons we teach our children.
What is the underlying message? You can’t just trust anyone. You have to know their character first.

I had a conversation with a woman about this very issue. She has been broken and wounded. She had trusted and been betrayed. Rejected and abandoned. Her trust radar had deceived her and now she was having trouble trusting again. Even God. Understandably so.

“How do I know I can trust God? How do you know?” her words asked, but her heart implored and her tears begged.

“Because the best predictor of future behavior is past behavior…even for God.”

Where in the Bible does it say God is trustworthy?

There are over 220 verses in the Bible specifically about trusting God. But, if you are like most people, just telling you about something may not convince you to do something.

But when we teach children about how to decide who to trust, we teach them to assess someone’s character to determine if they are trustworthy.

Similarly, scripture tells us about the character of God that makes Him trustworthy.

 

 

These 16 Bible Verses that Prove God’s Character is Trustworthy

  1. God is not human and He cannot lie (Numbers 23:19).
  2. He is righteous (Jeremiah 9:23-24).
  3. God is loving (John 3:16).
  4. He is caring (Matthew 6:26).
  5. God shows loving-kindness (Psalm 86:15).
  6. He is compassionate (Psalm 103:4-5).
  7. God is understanding (Psalm 139:1-2).
  8. He is forgiving (Psalm 103:12).
  9. God pardons us (Psalm 103:3).
  10. He redeems us (Job 19:25)
  11. God renews us (Isaiah 40:31).
  12. He satisfies us (Psalm 107:9).
  13. God accepts us (Psalm 139:1-6).
  14. He is gracious toward us (Ephesians 1:7-8).
  15. God heals us (Isaiah 53:5).
  16. He is sovereign (Psalm 103:19).

I can’t convince anyone to trust me or trust God. But if there was ever anyone I would be inclined to put my trust in, it would be one who would have ALL those traits at the same time. And the only one I know who does is God. He has never let me down. He has proven Himself trustworthy to me, and He will prove Himself trustworthy to you if you will let Him.

Will you let God prove His character to be trustworthy to you today?
