Trust Issues and Thwarts

1 Sep

WHEN YOU HAVE a history of placing your trust into someone or something and that trust is broken it can be likened to a rope that is torn in half. Although you may try to tie the rope back together, the “knot” will remain there…

We live in a grievous world full of people who are evil, and abuse others. And within the IC there is an even more dangerous evil of wolves in sheep’s clothing. People who are not outwardly evil, people who have integrity and appear righteous and innocent but a really ministers sent by Satan and inwardly ravenous, selfish, “clouds without water.”

Not to mention the IC, but in general it’s fair to say we have all experienced betrayal, broken promises, and our hopes diminished and shamed. We long to trust, and be accepted; but when we are rejected we can respond in many various ways. One of them is the “ain’t nobody to trust” mentality that’s a mindset of self-preservation. Another is the “rejection fear” a mindset that drives people into the anxiety of needing to be accepted.

Trust is a fundamental part of the human heart, or the mind and emotions. Trust is what bridges relationships, and is essentially the foundation of what makes up a relationship. The first priority we must have is to trust in God through Christ. We should have no other reliance other than God. The issue arises is the person with the “ain’t nobody to trust” mindset claiming to only “trust God” when ignorantly the person fails to realize that God works in people to help others in need…

One of Satan’s powerful thwartings is to create mistrust in your heart. Satan knows exactly what people God wants you to be surrounded with and will do everything to prevent you from reaching God’s people. Think of it like a herd of sheep. Satan works as the wolf, cutting off the path of a struggling lamb to the rest of the herd and shepherd for the sake of slaughter.

While, at times it’s important to have genuine doubts, and test everything, with examination. Eventually, you will have to come to a conclusion and make a decision to trust. The ones who constantly examines and tests yet never are able to come to conclusions are likely to have trust issues, or a mindset of fear. Since, no matter every reason to trust, or the good possibility of a successful relationship, Satan places irrational fear, thoughts, and accusations to shake up a person’s trust; eventually thwarting them from reaching a sincere relationship to someone who God had anointed in Christ.

This has to be one of the hindrances Satan uses against people who God has sent to be part of His Heavenly Kingdom. Satan along with his wicked spirits create all kinds of feelings of “eerie-ness” and fear of the unknown, religious demons, who without rest, are ever finding fault with God’s people and thus accusing and condemning His saints. Satan seductively with intellect, whispering all kinds of suggestions, questions, reasons, possibilities, outcomes, and lies mixed with truth—just to thwart some lost soul from reaching true people of God.

“There’s nothing new under the sun.” Since, Jesus Christ of Nazareth should have been trusted, and sought after for help, yet, at the cross He was betrayed, and left. His disciples shaken up with trusting Him. You can see how God Himself, has been through rejection, betrayal, and people not trusting Him. This is merely an example to demonstrate that Satan will do everything to get us away from trusting God and reaching His people. Not to mention the Devil will easily bring in the “right” people into your life or even yourself whom we should not trust at all…

    Yeah I can relate to that very well. And it sometimes is frankly scary to face this issue fore front when it is mixed with accusations. It’s hard to get back into full on trusting, I get cold feet quite honestly. But it’s a must. No one can live alone by themselves you are right. I don’t really know where to begin though
