Trust in God

Additional Links

signifies confidence in or dependence upon him. This trust ought to be:

1. Sincere and unreserved not in idols, in men, in talents, riches, power, in ourselves part and in him part (Proverbs 3:5-6);

2. Universal-body, soul, circumstances (1 Peter 5:7);

3. Perpetual (Isaiah 26:4)

4. With a lively expectation of his blessing (Micah 7:7). The encouragement we have to trust in him arises:

1. From his liberality (Romans 8:32; Psalms 84:11);

2. His ability (James 2:17);

3. His relationship (Psalms 103:13);

4. His promise (Isaiah 33:16);

5. His conduct in all ages to those who have trusted him (Genesis 48:15-16; Psalms 37:25).

The happiness of those who trust in him is great, if we consider,

1. Their safety (Psalms 125:1);

2. Their courage (Psalms 27:1);

3. Their peace (Isaiah 26:3);

4. Their character and fruitfulness (Psalms 1:3);

5. Their end (Psalms 37:37; Job 5:26). (See FAITH).
