TRUST: a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
To know Him is to LOVE Him. To love Him is to TRUST Him. To trust Him is to OBEY Him. And to obey Him is to be BLESSED by Him!
1. Trusting God brings happiness!
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him!
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults,
and with my song I give thanks to him.
2. Trusting God brings faith.
11 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.
Man says… show me and I’ll trust you. God says… trust me and I’ll show you!
6 And without faith it is impossible to please him, for whoever would draw near to God must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who seek him.
17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
3. Trusting God brings peace.
27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid.
No Jesus, no peace… Know Jesus, know peace.
6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
4. Trusting God brings hope.
19 We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul, a hope that enters into the inner place behind the curtain,
13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
