Trust the Trustworthy One Part 1 of 3

 

The next three weeks the writings will be a simple succession of bullet outline statements followed by the Scriptures to back the statements up. Each statement will be in reference to the issue of trust. This will provide us, at the end of the three weeks, an in-depth look at the issue of trust “God style.”

VARIOUS TRUTHS ABOUT TRUST:

 

Anxiety can be overcome by trust.

Ps. 37:1–5 = Do not fret because of evildoers, Nor be envious of the workers of iniquity. 2For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, And wither as the green herb. 3Trust in the Lord, and do good; Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4Delight yourself also in the Lord, And He shall give you the desires of your heart. 5Commit your way to the Lord, Trust also in Him, And He shall bring it to pass.

 

 

Reliance upon the Holy Spirit to speak through us is a deep form of trust.

Mark 13:11 [Jesus speaking] = “But when they arrest you and deliver you up, do not worry beforehand, or premeditate what you will speak. But whatever is given you in that hour, speak that; for it is not you who speak, but the Holy Spirit.

 

 

 

We can trust in God’s provision for us.

Luke 12:22–30 [Jesus speaking ] = 22Then He said to His disciples, “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; nor about the body, what you will put on. 23“Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing. 24“Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap, which have neither storehouse nor barn; and God feeds them. Of how much more value are you than the birds? 25“And which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature? 26“If you then are not able to do the least, why are you anxious for the rest? 27“Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; and yet I say to you, even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28“If then God so clothes the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much more will He clothe you, O you of little faith? 29“And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. 30“For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things.

 

 

Assurance of God’s sovereignty gives us trust in Him.

Rom. 8:28 = And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.

 

 

Prayer is a trusted method in which we can communicate with God.

Phil. 4:6 = Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;

 

Uncertainties in life need not affect our trust in God and what God has revealed to us.

Rom. 4:19–21 = 19And not being weak in faith, he did not consider his own body, already dead (since he was about a hundred years old), and the deadness of Sarah’s womb. 20He did not waver at the promise of God through unbelief, but was strengthened in faith, giving glory to God, 21and being fully convinced that what He had promised He was also able to perform.

 

Trust God’s care for you!

1 Pet. 5:6, 7 = 6Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, 7casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.

 

There is such a thing as “believing trust,” which totally believes in what it seeks as being God’s Will.

Matt. 21:22 [Jesus speaking] = “And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive.”

 

 

Happiness of God’s people is derived from, trust in God.

Prov. 16:20 = He who heeds the word wisely will find good, And whoever trusts in the Lord, happy is he.

 

Our trust in the Lord is to be with all you heart.

Prov. 3:5 = Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

 

We are called to trust God when you can’t explain a situation or circumstance in our lives.

Job 2:9, 10 = Then his wife said to him, “Do you still hold fast to your integrity? Curse God and die!” 10But he said to her, “You speak as one of the foolish women speaks. Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?” In all this Job did not sin with his lips.

 

The cure for a person’s insomnia can be found through trust in God.

Ps. 3:5, 6 = I lay down and slept; I awoke, for the Lord sustained me. I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.

  1. out of this whole entry, the verse ‘Shall we indeed accept good from God, and shall we not accept adversity?’ spoke to me most. it’s interesting when it is laid out like that. how little with think about life in these terms.

    • If we trust our God we must trust His Providence. Yes, there is good and evil in the world. No, God does not want some of the horrible things that happen to happen. We choose daily to listen to God or Satan. Humans have freewill and they often use it to the detriment of their fellow human being. However, remember Job from the Bible whose story must be read from bringing to end or it cannot be understood and will be taken out of context, Job suffered horribly but He suffered nothing without God first knowing and knowing Job could and would overcome what He was going to suffer.
