Trust in God

Trust in God!


232. Trust in God! One of the main statutes we find in the religions of God is that we must put our Trust in God if we are to spiritually progress in this existence: The messengers of God tell us that trust in God is a must for our deliverance from the harsh realities of this life, and if we are to truly achieve salvation and progress in this world and in the next world. How can our spirit grow and our soul develop if we don’t trust in our creator to do what is best for us? And, God wants us, to place our trust in Him, to have faith in Him always unto eternity.

    Without trust in God we are like a rudderless boat adrift on the sea of doubt not knowing in what direction we are going or how we will get there; because we have no true guidance, we feel we can count on, to show us the way. Jewish symbols star-8pix Judaism: 2 Samuel 22:3 “The God of my rock; in Him will I trust: He is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.” Psalms 7:1 “O LORD my God, in thee do I put my trust: save me from all them that persecute me, and deliver me:” Psalms 16:1 “Preserve me, O God: for in thee do I put my trust.” Psalms 31:1 “In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.” Psalms 37:3 “Trust in The LORD, and do good;” Psalms 71:1 “In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust: let me never be put to confusion.” Psalms 118:8 “It is better to trust in The LORD than to put confidence in man.” Psalms 118:9 “It is better to trust in The LORD than to put confidence in princes.” Psalms 141:8 “But mine eyes are unto thee, O GOD The Lord: in thee is my trust; leave not my soul destitute.” Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in The LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:6 “In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 16:20 “He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in The LORD, happy is he.” Proverbs 30:5 “Every word of God is pure: He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him.” Isaiah 12:2 “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for The LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; He also is become my salvation.” Isaiah 26:4 “Trust ye in The LORD for ever: for in The LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength:” the cross-5pix Christianity: Matthew 12:21 “And in His name shall the Gentiles trust.” 2 Corinthians 1:9 “But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:” 2 Corinthians 1:10 “Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in Whom we trust that He will yet deliver us;” 1 Timothy 6:17 “Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; 6:18 That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; 6:19 Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life.”
