Psalm 37, 5: “Commit thy ways unto the Lord; trust also in Him and He shall bring it to pass.”

Proverbs 3, 5: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart and lean not unto thine own understanding.”

Psalm 56, 3: “What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.”

Trust is required or necessary in times of uncertainty, trouble, fear or danger. Trusting God will help you to stand firm and go through the trials of life with a victorious mindset. It is enough if you trust and have faith just like a mustard seed. Having simple trust, simple faith like that of the little children will help you to move the mountains. To trust God means that you don’t rely on your own human intellect, reasoning and comprehension of things and situations. For our thoughts are not His thoughts and our ways are not His ways (Isaiah 55, 8-9). God often comes up with another solution that we did not even think about. When you trust God, you agree to put your total confidence in His power and ability because you know that with God, all things are possible. He will never fail. He is the almighty God and His power is matchless. When people say that it is impossible, God says that there is nothing too hard for Him to do. But we often stop God from moving when we don’t trust Him. Unfortunately, we can tie God’s hands with our unbelief and lack of trust.

The three young Hebrew Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego trusted God when they were thrown in the fire and He delivered them (Daniel chapter 3). God is honored when we trust Him. Trusting God means that we acknowledge Him as our God, our All in all, our Great I am. He will be for us what we need Him to be in the situation. The Bible tells us about mighty men of faith who trusted God in their situations. Moses, for instance, had to really trust God that He would open the Red Sea by him simply stretching out his rod over the waters, causing the children of Israel to go through on dry land and being delivered from the Pharaoh (Exodus chapter 14). God did not actually need Moses to stretch his hand before He would part the sea, but Moses’ trust and obedience were being tested. God will always be faithful and do His part, but we must also do our part, which is to trust the One who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think (Ephesians 3, 20). Mighty men and women of faith like David, Joseph, Job or Esther had to trust God and rely on His power to achieve great purposes and watch God take them into highest places. They had a firm confidence in their God. They were unshaken; they were not tossed to and fro. Like Paul said, they knew in whom they have believed (2 Timothy 1, 12). For those who know their God shall be strong and do mighty exploits (Daniel 11, 32b). But all these great experiences are not only for the past. We can continue to write the story today and be a source of inspiration for the next generation by the level of trust that we put in God. mt
