Have you ever wondered whether it is sensible to trust in God amid threats to your life? You may probably be looking for a job and you are told to bribe in order to find that proper job you have been waiting for. Isn’t it easier to ignore the biblical injunction to steer clear of corrupt practises and give some money to get the job and get out of the torture that comes with joblessness?
Trusting the Lord calls for a solid conviction that once something is wrong, you avoid it whatever the consequences. God does indeed deliver us from difficult situations but we do not necessarily need to know how He does it before we can trust in Him. The prophet Daniel trusted in Him when threatened with the furnace of fire and was miraculously delivered from the fire (Daniel 3). The apostle Paul on the other hand prayed three times for deliverance from the troubling physical situation in which he found himself. God did not deliver him; instead He encouraged and strengthened him through it (2 Corinthians 12:7-10). It is therefore important to simply trust the written word whatever your circumstances. That becomes genuine faith in the Living God.
