Devotion: Trust In God

“Faith” is defined as “trust in somebody or something, especially without logical proof; trust in somebody that you consider worthwhile and truthful; and accepting that something exists when there is no physical proof of its existence or of its reality”  We can honestly say that having faith in somebody or something is the same as having trust in the same.

“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God” (Mark 11:22).  Jesus is telling us to have faith in God, which is the same as him telling us to have “trust in God.”  We know that God is a god of faith, for “without faith it is impossible to please him” (Hebrews 11:6).  Therefore, if we trust in God then it is possible for us to please God.  Imagine that, a little trust can go a long way to pleasing God.

Faith or should we say trust is required in order to have a relationship with God.  Faith or trust is necessary for anyone who wants to know God.  Scripture tells us to trust in the Lord with all our heart and in all of our ways submit to God and he will direct us, making our path straight and crowning our efforts with success.

“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6).

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.  Delight thyself also in the Lord; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.  Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.  And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday” (Psalm 37:3-6).

Faith is a choice.  Believing is a choice.  Trust is definitely a choice.  You can choose to believe or you can choose not to believe; that choice is yours.  As for us, we choose to believe and we choose to place our faith or our “trust in God.”

We pray that today’s inspirational message will bless you and inform you.  If you are blessed by this message, please share so that others may be blessed as well.  Amen.

Enjoy your blessings - KW
