Trust in God

Trust in God 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 (Pr 3:5-6); 2. Universal-body, soul, circumstances (1Pe 5:7); 3. Perpetual (Isa 26:4)

4. With a lively expectation of his blessing (Mic 7:7). The encouragement we have to trust in him arises: 1. From his liberality (Ro 8:32; Ps 84:11); 2. His ability (Jas 2:17); 3. His relationship (Ps 103:13); 4. His promise (Isa 33:16); 5. His conduct in all ages to those who have trusted him (Ge 48:15-16; Ps 37:25).

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

1. Their safety (Ps 125:1); 2. Their courage (xxvii, 1); 3. Their peace (Isa 26:3); 4. Their character and fruitfulness (Ps 1:3); 5. Their end (37:37; Job 5:26). SEE FAITH.
