Trust, Faith, and the Bible

Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;

In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.

(Proverbs 3:5-6)

LORD Jesus, we praise You, for You are the One who is above all—all authorities and powers, all people, and all situations. Forgive us, O God, we pray, whenever we neglect to believe in Your mighty acts. You do work everything together for the good of Your people. Enable us to put our trust in You, and let us have faith in You alone. Guide us daily in Your Word, and give us the power to obey Your command. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.

During our travel, we board the aircraft, take the bus, step off the platform and into the train, or drive our cars in a greater or lesser speed. After a visit to the clinic, we take the prescription, go to the pharmacist to receive our medication, and then take the pills as prescribed by our doctor. Throughout life, we are asked to put our trust in people and products.

Trust whom? Have faith in what? Read the Holy Bible.

In whom, or what, do you put your trust? Why are you trusting a source? Do you have faith? Faith in whom or what? The Holy Bible? Do you seek the whole counsel of God? Really? Will you obey Him, lean on His Word, and do what God requires you to do?

It is so easy for us to say that we believe… in Christ and what He did for us on the cross. In Mark 11:22 Jesus tells us to “Have faith in God.” (Read more on faith in Hebrew 11)

Regarding today’s verses, Matthew Henry writes,

We must not only in our judgment believe that there is an over-ruling hand of God ordering and disposing of us and all our affairs, but we must solemnly own it, and address ourselves to him accordingly.

Diligently seek God today.
