What is TRUST?

What does it mean to Trust?  We’re called to Trust friends, Trust co-workers, Trust doctors, Trust bank tellers.  But what does it mean to trust God? Proverbs 3:5-8 puts it this way…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
do not depend on your own understanding.

Seek his will in all you do,
and he will show you which path to take.

Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom.
Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Then you will have healing for your body
and strength for your bones.

The TRUST Bookmark…

A bookmark has been published (Universal Designs, Inc.) with the following acronym that puts TRUST into a biblical context…


Take one day at a time

Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself.   Each day has enough trouble of its own.”  (Matthew 6:34)


Remember that all things work together for good.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.”   (Romans 8:28-29


Under no circumstances should you worry.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”   (Philippians 4:6-7)


Start every day with prayer and thanksgiving.

Be joyful always;  pray continually;  give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”  (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)


The Lord will never forsake you.

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.”  So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?’ ” (Hebrews 13:5-6)
