Trust In The Lord

When I’m through trusting in  people, places, money, circumstances, things, or any other earthly stuff, I end up where I should have started all along.  My struggles come from putting my hope in places that it does not belong–especially people.

God is faithful, however, and He will have the final say.  He is faithful to comfort us through His Holy Spirit and His Word.  He is comforting us right now through the love of Jesus and if my trust will remain in Him, I will win the war.

Here are some passages of hope and confidence from God.  He is the giver of all good things and the Savior of our souls.

(Isaiah 40:27-31 NIV)  “Why do you say, O Jacob, and complain, O Israel, “My way is hidden from the LORD; my cause is disregarded by my God”? {28} Do you not know? Have you not heard? The LORD is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. {29} He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. {30} Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; {31} but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”

(Matthew 5:43-48 NIV)  “”You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ {44} But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, {45} that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. {46} If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? {47} And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? {48} Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
