Learning To Trust Him

“Trust in the Lord...Fear the Lord…Honor the Lord” Proverbs 3:5-9

The Bible is filled with encouragement for us as we learn how to trust God. As we pray for God to teach us to trust Him, we turn to God’s word to help using the power of His Word as we meditate on Scripture.

Isaiah 41:10  - Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand 

Psalm 28:7 - The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him. 

Matthew 6:25 - “Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?

Psalm 9:10 - And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.

Hebrews 13:8 - Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.

Romans 15:13 - May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

Romans 8:28  - And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.

Psalm 112:7 - He is not afraid of bad news; his heart is firm, trusting in the Lord.

Joshua 1:9 - Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Mark 5:36 - But overhearing what they said, Jesus said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear, only believe.”

Isaiah 26:3 - You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.

Prayer for today: A Prayer When You Struggle to Trust God Pray: Lord, You see the circumstances I face today, and You know the fear and anxiety I feel. Forgive me for letting worry overtake my thoughts. Pour out a spirit of belief over me, so I can choose to trust You. There is no God like You, awesome in power, working wonders. I praise You for the faithfulness You have shown me so many times in the past. Lord Jesus, even though I feel worried, I will choose to trust You. Help me remind myself today of Your great love and power. Help me identify fearful, anxious thoughts and lay them at the foot of Your cross. Give me the grace and power I need to meditate on truths from Your Word instead. Help me also speak positive words that will inspire others to trust You as well. You are my salvation. You have already saved me from sin, and I know You have the power to save me from my troubles now. Thank You for being with me. I know You have plans to bless me and work for my good. Lord, You are my strength and my song. I will worship You today and sing Your praises, even if I cannot quite understand what You are doing. Thank You for putting a new song in my heart. Amen

Personal Prayer: “Lord, I want to please You! What do You want me to do to help make the dreams of our church come true?”
