Clarify the WHY

Trust in the Lord above all things

By October 21, 2019 No Comments

Ask yourself, who is it you trust most in this world? Who is the most worthy of your trust? Think of all the wonders that god gives us, and how little he asks in return.

Building your relationship with the lord means building trust with him. It is when uncertainty has fled your heart that God’s love will show itself.

Remember to stand in awe at the narrow range of the lord’s capabilities that you are able to understand. Fear his wrath and what is wrought upon his enemies.

Take a few minutes and think about trust. What does trust mean? What can be gained from it?

We all falter from time to time. When you are down and out, remember this page and re-read some of these passages. Contemplate what trust means to you, and what you can do to place more of it in the lord in your everyday life.

Psalm 56:3-4 When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise- in God I trust and am not afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Isaiah 26:3-4 You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you. Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.

Psalm 13:5 But I trust in your unfailing love; my heart rejoices in your salvation.

Psalm 37:5 Commit your way to the LORD; trust in him and he will do this:

Psalm 9:10 Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you.

Jeremiah 29:11-14 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back from captivity. I will gather you from all the nations and places where I have banished you,” declares the LORD, “and will bring you back to the place from which I carried you into exile.”

Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord,

whose confidence is in him.

They will be like a tree planted by the water

that sends out its roots by the stream.

It does not fear when heat comes;

its leaves are always green.

It has no worries in a year of drought

and never fails to bear fruit.”

Proverbs 16:3 Commit to the Lord whatever you do,

and he will establish your plans.

Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,

for I have put my trust in you.

Show me the way I should go,

for to you I entrust my life.

2 Corinthians 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.

James 1:6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.

Hebrews 13:6 So we say with confidence,

“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.

What can mere mortals do to me?”

Proverbs 29:25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare,

but whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.

Psalm 73:25 Whom have I in heaven but you?

And earth has nothing I desire besides you.

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Philippians 4:19 And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.

Proverbs 16:20 Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers,

and blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord.

1 John 4:16 And so we know and rely on the love God has for us. God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

Psalm 37:3 Trust in the Lord and do good;

dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

1 John 4:1 Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Psalm 31:19 How abundant are the good things

that you have stored up for those who fear you,

that you bestow in the sight of all,

on those who take refuge in you.

And with these thoughts in mind.

We have some thoughts to pray on. We need to see the light that shines upon us when we trust in a higher power. We need to feel the strength that flows through us, knowing that we are not along. We know that it is our faith that gives us his favor. It is our devotion that will sow the seeds of prosperity.

We need to know what it means to see god in everything. We see the beauty of his love in everything around us. We see the trials that he sets before us for what they are. We are alive in the knowledge that with his love, there is nothing that we cannot overcome.

We could all do with more trust in our lives, and trusting in the lord is our best foundation to do so.
