BENEFITS OF TRUST

Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord . For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which is not inhabited. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord , And whose hope is the Lord . For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit “{Jeremiah 17:5~8}.
Who do you trust? Who is qualified to merit your trust? Do you know what trust is? Trust is the unquestionable confidence you put in someone or something. The bottom line and truth of the matter is people will let you down, and you will even let yourself down, but God will never ever let us down. Isaiah 26:4 says, “Trust ye in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God is everlasting strength.” Then we are warned in 1 Timothy 6:17 not to trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy. Then for those who trust in themselves Proverbs 28:26 says, he that trusteth in his own heart is a fool. Psalm 118:8 says, “It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.” The apostle Paul describes for us in 2 Corinthians 1:8-10 the confidence we develop when we trust in God, “We were burdened beyond measure, above strength, so that we despaired even of life, yes we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death and does deliver us, in whom we trust that He will deliver us.” Which means it’s time to eliminate people and self-dependence and totally trust God. It’s time to redirect our focus and attention on God and boldly declare like David in Psalm 18:2, “The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer, my God, my strength in whom I will trust, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, and my High tower.” Some trust in chariots, and some in horses, but we will remember the Name of the Lord our God (Psalm 20:7).

Bottom line is if you don’t trust God, then you trust the devil, and he will continue to steal, kill and destroy you, but you can change all that today, by trusting in God, and His plans to save you through His beloved Son, Jesus, Just go to the top of this blog, click on the salvation page, follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you for the rest of your life. Now you can trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding, and acknowledge Him in all your ways, so that He can direct your paths as Proverbs 3:5 & 6 says. Now that you know who you can trust, are you willing to trust Him? “As for God,His way is perfect,the word of the Lord is tried,He is a shield to all those who trust in Him ” (Psalms 18:30). One man esteemeth one day above another,another esteemeth every day alike,let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind Romans 14:5 tells us,therefore I can’t trust for you. However,if you are interested in getting and knowing then you have to trust Him,remember,without faith it is impossible to trust God,and he that cometh to God must believe that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.{Hebrews 11:6}.

    …Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind.
    1.Romans 4:21
    And being fully persuaded that, what he had promised, he was able also to perform.
    +++When you fully trust God you are fully persuaded and you cannot be dissuaded.
