Musing on trust

Anything you need to take refuge from? Feeling weary and want to rest for a minute or longer by leaning on someone? Any burdens you need to be free from? The same vehicle facilitates each process, namely, trusting God.

The Scofield Study Bible provides the following information about trust:

“Trust is the characteristic Old Testament word for the New Testament ‘faith’ and ‘believe.’ It occurs 154 times in the Old Testament, and is the rendering of Hebrew words signifying ‘to take refuge’ (Psalm 2:12); ‘to lean on’ (Psalm 56:3); ‘to roll on’ (Psalm 22:8). 

How about it? Let us, without reservation, take refuge in the One Who is “our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1, KJV). Let’s us accept His invitation conveyed in Matthew 11:28, “Come to ME, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (NKJV). Let us roll our burdens on Him at His request (1 Peter 5:7). Let us trust Him.

“Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;  he’s the one who will keep you on track” (The Message).
