By placing Adam above all living things, God first showed to us what trust really is. God demonstrated a firm reliability on Adam's ability to take care of all that which has been placed under him.
But this trust was broken after Adam was lured to eat of the fruit which God forbade him and Eve to eat. The trust between God and Adam was broken and sin came into the world. This act of disobedience resulted in the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the garden and the fall of mankind as we know it today.
In Mathew 16:18 Our Lord Yashua (Jesus) said ''You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church. He trusted his apostles to carry on the good news at the end of his earthly mission. His apostles faced tremendous obstacles as they tried to fulfill this task, but even in the face of trials and tribulations they carried on and that is why the good news has been shared in almost all cities of the world today.
Trust is one of the most tender perception any living thing can have towards another living thing. A lioness is one of the most fierce hunter in the animal kingdom, but it's cubs are not afraid of her, because they trust her not to do any harm to them. A crying human infant is soothed by the smell of his/her mother because he/she knows she will satisfy his/her hunger.
As Christians, Life is worth living when we fully trust God for everything we need and desire, we go to sleep trusting that he will wake us up in the morning. We plan ahead because we know he will be there for us and he will give us the strength to carry on and persevere even when life gets tough.
The journey of a Christian and trusting fully in God is not a smooth journey, even the apostles who saw Christ in the flesh struggled from time to time with their believe. But we should dust ourselves up each time we fall, continuing to trust God almighty to the very end because he promised to give us the strength to do so.
