What happens when we begin to trust God

Read: Psalm 112, Isaiah 26:3-4, Psalm 119:165

Have you ever done a trust fall? It’s an exercise that businesses, sports teams, and organizations use to build trust among employees and teammates. 

One person blindly falls backward putting all their trust in the person behind them to catch them before they hit the ground. In order to fully commit to falling, you have to trust the person behind you to catch you before you hit the ground. 

Learning to trust God’s promises can feel a lot like a trust fall. It won’t happen by accident. You’ll have to choose to let go. The Bible tells us that something special happens when we do. We experience God’s unmistakable, unexplainable peace. 

We all want peace, but too often, we look for it in all the wrong places. How often do you catch yourself thinking the following: 
“If I can just __________, I’ll have peace.” 
“If I only had __________, I’d be OK.”

Peace isn’t found in obtaining a position or more possessions. And peace isn’t always found in the absence of conflict. Psalm 112 (MSG) describes the person who trusts God as unperturbed, ever blessed, unfazed by rumor and gossip, and relaxed among their enemies. 

Real, lasting peace only comes from trusting God’s promises. The prophet Isaiah recognized this, writing, “[God] will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you” (Isaiah 26:3).  

Our hearts can remain steadfast because God’s promises remain steadfast. We don’t have to fear falling because we know God promises He will catch us. God is a promise maker, but more importantly, God is a promise keeper. Stand firm in the steadfastness of God’s promises.


  • Do you struggle to find peace? How do you respond when it seems like your world is in chaos? 
  • How many times in a day do you find yourself fearful of receiving bad news? Where does that fear come from?
  • What’s one way that trusting God’s promises has brought you peace in the past? Which promises do you need to lean into to experience that same peace today?
