Billy Graham’s homecoming reminds us all that our trust in the Lord is based completely on the promises we find in God’s Word. Billy modeled this for us so well. His complete trust was in the God who gave us His Word in the Bible. He received this truth by faith and never looked back. We must do the same.
We cannot trust the ideas of mortal men, but we can trust our God! We can count on Him to deliver what He has promised. He gives us hope. I am blessed when my children believe me when I make a promise to them. It would grieve me if they would not trust me. Our heavenly Father feels the same way about us, His children. He has proved Himself faithful to us. We can totally trust Him and His Word. The basis for our trust in God comes from the very nature of God, of Jesus Christ, and of His eternal Word. Our abiding trust can only come from the Lord who does not disappoint us (Romans 5:5).
