Proverbs 3:5 English Standard Version (ESV)
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
Never be afraid to Trust an unknown future to a known God. - Corrie Ten Boom
Psalm 56:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?
Either we are adrift in chaos or we are individuals, created, loved, upheld and placed purposefully, exactly where we are. Can you believe that? Can you trust God for that?
Trust is merely an act we are to perform in everything... and when we don't.. all we can do is say "Lord, help me in my unbelief, forgive me for not trusting you with THIS Specific thing, help me to trust you in ALL things".
It's not easy.
But it is necessary.
When I remember to trust God this is what happens... the pressure is off. After all, when I trust I am showing that I am ultimately not in control... it's no longer MY problem. This enables me to just relax and work my way through whatever is facing me. It helps me to take a longer term view on things. So it may be hard now (and sometimes it is very hard) but ultimately God will work it out. So trusting him is crucial to my life. It removes a lot fear and uncertainty, it relieves pressure of "I have to do this just right", and it helps me to remember just who I love... God... the one who sustains me (psalm 55:22)
Psalm 118:8-9 (English Standard Version)
8 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in man.
9 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in princes.
