What is trust?
Trust means to count on or rely upon God, someone or something.
You can’t trust someone if you don’t believe in them and if you believe in something is different from trust in that thing. I believe you are human beings but I don’t trust you, that you can help me to the end.
In trust, we put in our hope, confident, we depend on, not only that but also we expect something out of it. What do you mean by totally trust in God? What I mean by totally trust in God is to put God first in all things, even at the point of death.
If we put our hope, confident, believe, depend on and expecting something out of it, let all this be put in God, in all situations. Before we read our first Bible quote, let me give one illustration.
1} In our homes, we have some children who keep asking questions upon questions, why? “Because” they believe that the person they are “asking” the question will give them the correct answers.
2} Some children also will ask where is it, when they are been sent, even what they are looking for is right in front of them, why? Because they believe and trust that their parents know everything and even where they are in the house.
Let talk our first Bible Quote:
Psalm 20 vs 7 Some trust in chariots and others in horses, but we depend on the LORD our God. (NET) This quote let us understand and know that some people put their trust in many things, like they trust their cars, can take them to their destination but your car can not get there without God protections, the Holy word of God says God cares for both good and bad people else will.
Not only that but other things like money, property, friends, Pastors, coworkers etc people put their trust in them. But we depend on or trust in the Lord our God, why? Because he is the living God, He is the beginning and the end and the are no one likes him, Now let takes some word from our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
Matthew: 6 vs
26 Look at the birds in the sky. They don’t plant or harvest or gather food into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. You are more valuable than they are, aren’t you?
31 “So don’t ever worry by saying, ‘What are we going to eat?’ or ‘What are we going to drink?’ or ‘What are we going to wear?’
32 because it is the unbelievers who are eager for all those things. Surely your heavenly Father knows that you need all of them! Here our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth is telling us that, if we totally trust in God our Father in Heaven he will take care of us and our needs.
(ISV) Proverbs 3 vs
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not depend on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs is telling us, to totally trust God with all our heart,
Meaning: If you trust God tell him your secret
If we totally trust in God our Lord, every morning we will play to Him and wait for His answer, when we make our plans for our home, work, finances, for our children and other things we will submit it to Him and wait for His final plan for us. And when He gave us his plan for our lives, work, finances, church, children and other we will accept it in good faith and think him.
Just imagine this, when you close from work and God willing you get home the first thing you do is kneel down and pray telling God what happened from morning till close, keep doing it every day for 6 months or more and see the relationship you will build in the Lord God, not only after work but in the morning tell him, what happened in the night when you wake up what you did before going back to sleep, what you dreamed about and many other. Telling God about it in prayers.
When you build the relationship with your Lord your God, you will know what God has for you and your family, things will totally change in your family.
Because you trust in God that is why you tell him everything about you to him, yes truly he knows everything, but he still asks;
Genesis 3 vs 9 “Where are you?” and Mark 10 vs 51 “What do you want Me to do for you?”
If you don’t trust him you can not tell him anything about yourself and your business others to God, without trusting him you will think to pray to him you are delaying or wasting your time. Or you just ask him for things you want.
This is the end of part one trust in God.
