56. The law on Trusting God
Remember that this is a law and not a suggestion. What would the penalty be for failure to trust God?
It would be the result of “leaning on your own understanding”. Believe this: we do not have very good understanding in our flesh. Our understanding becomes perfect when we Obey God and keep his commandment.
Trust in God.
1 Chronicles 5:20 KJV+ And they were helpedH5826 againstH5921 them, and the HagaritesH1905 were deliveredH5414 into their hand,H3027 and allH3605 that were withH7945 H5973 them: forH3588 they criedH2199 to GodH430 in the battle,H4421 and he was intreatedH6279 of them; becauseH3588 they put their trustH982 in him.
The warning: Make sure you have your trust in the right God. There is only one Creator.
Jeremiah 46:25 KJV+ The LORDH3068 of hosts,H6635 the GodH430 of Israel,H3478 saith;H559 Behold,H2009 I will punishH6485 H413 the multitudeH528 of No,H4480 H4996 and Pharaoh,H6547 and Egypt,H4714 withH5921 their gods,H430 and their kings;H4428 even Pharaoh,H6547 and all them that trustH982 in him:
Proverbs 30:5 KJV+ EveryH3605 wordH565 of GodH433is pure:H6884 heH1931is a shieldH4043 unto them that put their trustH2620 in him.
Proverbs 3:5-8 KJV+ TrustH982 inH413 the LORDH3068 with allH3605 thine heart;H3820 and leanH8172 notH408 untoH413 thine own understanding.H998(6) In allH3605 thy waysH1870 acknowledgeH3045 him, and heH1931 shall directH3474 thy paths.H734(7) BeH1961 notH408 wiseH2450 in thine own eyes:H5869 fearH3372 (H853) the LORD,H3068 and departH5493 from evil.H4480 H7451(8) It shall beH1961 healthH7500 to thy navel,H8270 and marrowH8250 to thy bones.H6106
Trust in God every day for all your needs:
Matthew 10:29-31 KJV+Are notG3780twoG1417sparrowsG4765soldG4453for a farthing?G787andG2532oneG1520ofG1537themG846shall notG3756fallG4098onG1909theG3588groundG1093withoutG427yourG5216Father.G3962(30)ButG1161theG3588veryG2532hairsG2359of yourG5216headG2776areG1526allG3956numbered.G705(31)FearG5399ye notG3361therefore,G3767yeG5210are of more valueG1308than manyG4183sparrows.G4765
Luk 12:6 Are not five sparrows sold for two assaria? And not one of them has been forgotten before God.
Luk 12:7 But even the hairs of your head have all been numbered. Then stop being afraid; you differ from many sparrows.
Luk 12:22 And He said to His disciples, Because of this I say to you, Do not be anxious as to your life, what you should eat; nor as to the body, what you should put on.
Luk 12:23 The life is more than the food and the body than the clothing.
Luk 12:24 Consider the ravens, for they do not sow, nor do they reap; to which there is no storehouse or barn, and God feeds them. How much rather you differ from the birds!
Luk 12:25 And who of you by being anxious is able to add one cubit to his stature?
Luk 12:26 Then if you are not able to do even the least, why are you anxious about the rest?
Luk 12:27 Consider the lilies, how they grow: they do not labor, nor do they spin, but I say to you, Not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed as one of these.
Luk 12:28 But if God so dresses the grass, which today is in the field and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, how much rather you, little-faiths?
Luk 12:29 And you, do not seek what you shall eat, or what you shall drink, and stop being in anxiety.
Luk 12:30 For all the nations of the world seek after these things, and your Father knows that you need these things.
Luk 12:31 But seek the kingdom of God and all these things will be added to you.
Luk 12:32 Stop being afraid, little flock, because your Father was pleased to give you the kingdom.
Luk 12:33 Sell your possessions and give alms. Make for yourselves purses that do not grow old, an unfailing treasure in Heaven, where a thief cannot come near, nor moth can corrupt.
Luk 12:34 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
(Luke 12:22) AndG1161 he saidG2036 untoG4314 hisG848 disciples,G3101ThereforeG1223 G5124I sayG3004unto you,G5213Take no thoughtG3309 G3361for yourG5216life,G5590whatG5101ye shall eat;G5315neitherG3366for theG3588body,G4983whatG5101ye shall put on.G1746
