We talk to our children often about stranger danger, predators, and about guarding who and where they place their trust due to peace or safety concerns. It is wise to build trust in a secure environment.
When discord enters a safe and secure relationship, trust exits and honor and respect quickly follow. Spirits of hate, jealousy, anger, bitterness, hurt, strife, sorrow and fear can rush to fill the place where honor and respect once stood.
Thoughts that lead to words and actions are the cause of trust fleeing relationships between man and his Creator, husband and wife, parents and children, siblings, friends, family and acquaintances.
Safe and secure relationships can be healed and restored if we are willing to recognize and repent for moments that we have caused broken trust within our relationships.
Once trust is reestablished, honor and respect can return conquering the spirits that invaded their place.
Abba, forgive us for our thoughts that became words and actions that caused trust to escape any area of our relationship with you or with others that bring us no harm.
Be our help in building a firm foundation of trust in your promises that guide our steps in discerning and guarding trust in our relationships.
