Trust is one of the most important issue in any kind of relationship. There is of course a good relationship between love and trust. You don’t trust no one unless you fall in love. Trust is the key when it comes to establishing a strong relationship with your spouse.
If you do not trust her or him, the love you have will be questioned. In fact the greatest treasure one can have next to love is trustworthiness. Are you trusted in the heart of your spouse? Is your spouse trusted in your heart? These are the questions you need to answer before you even think about forming long time relationships.
You may like your friend but if you don’t trust him/her, it is not complete love. When you completely fall in love, you will surrender your self as a gift for one another. Now the very basic thing that temptation will bring upon you is the same thing you have trusted.
Temptation is a questioning thought on the trust you have for one another with question like, “Would she do that if she really loves you?” or “Why would he do that if he cares for you?” If you agree to such kind of temptation that put your trust in bad state, then you will have difficulty to continue in the relationship. There will always be a time where you would feel neglected and rejected and unloved and untrusted in any kind of relationship with others.
What is the difference between love and trust? So when you take a good care of your spouse by being nice to her/him doing what he/she likes the most is love. Trust is the part that continues when love seems to stop. If you answer to your bad thoughts about the doubts and negative feelings, that is love and it takes your true love to trust him/her. So what is the medicine for all the discomfort? You see life is too short to spend all of your time trying to figure out what makes him or her not trustworthy.
There is nothing so devastating that put unbelief and a sense of untrustworthiness in the heart of your wife or husband than disbelief. If you spell out for your spouse that she/he is not trustworthy, then that by itself has the potential to force her/him to be one. Sometimes what makes her/him faithful to you is the level of trust you are building in your spouse’s life. Therefore do not underestimate the power of trust.
Even when things look like a little fishy and they don’t even make sense; when you feel discomfort and something overpowers you just to put away all the trust; please don’t go to that road and bother your marriage potentially with the ideas of the wicked.
But all of these don’t contradict the fact that you need to be aware of everything that is going on around your family and always pray for your spouse for things bothering him/her. The same way devil comes to you to deceive and to steal and to take away, it will come to other members of the family also.
Therefore as a person who has full authority given by God on the issues of the house, every responsibility to protect and guard the family with prayer is on you. So when the time comes that you feel something going on, it is time to kneel down and pray.
Trust has to be there in your relationship especially in marriage. If you already make a promise that you will always love and trust your spouse, please fulfill this promise by doing so.
Most of all we want to be pure and clean in the eyes of God and not men. We want to glorify his name. Marriage doesn’t start at the time of wedding. Marriage starts when two people man and woman, fall in love and make a covenant with God to be one.
God makes the two one by blessing their relationship and their house. If God is not with them that is the beginning and the end of it. Not the sound of thousands of people shouting at the wedding makes one wedding a marriage.
Not even the pastor or the quire makes it true if the Spirit of the Lord is not in that place. But when the Lord blessed your marriage, no evil force
as the power to stand your marriage.
In conclusion, let us be faithful to our God by trusting our spouse and by becoming trustworthy for them.
Marriage is a wonderful gift from God. Therefore let us be thankful and preserve it with all the expense and sacrifices so that we shall be rewarded at the end. God is the creator and the judge of our marriage that He will not only support us in times of trouble but also ask us what we did with our marriage at the end.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. -1 Corinthians 13:4-7
He who finds a wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord. - Proverbs 18:22
Husbands, love your wives, as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her, that he might sanctify her, having cleansed her by the washing of water with the word, so that he might present the church to himself in splendor, without spot or wrinkle or any such thing, that she might be holy and without blemish. In the same way husbands should love their wives as their own bodies. He who loves his wife loves himself. For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as Christ does the church, - Ephesians 5:25-33
