“Those who trust in their own reasoning are fools, but those who walk in wisdom will be kept safe.” (Proverbs 28:26, CEB)
“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].” (Proverbs 3:5-6, AMP)
“Trust [rely on and have confidence] in the Lord and do good; Dwell in the land and feed [securely] on His faithfulness. Commit your way to the Lord; Trust in Him also and He will do it. He will make your righteousness [your pursuit of right standing with God] like the light, And your judgment like [the shining of] the noonday [sun].” (Psalm 37:3, 5-6, AMP)
“O Lord of hosts, How blessed and greatly favored is the man who trusts in You [believing in You, relying on You, and committing himself to You with confident hope and expectation].” (Psalm 84:12, AMP)
“Those who trust in and rely on the Lord [with confident expectation] Are like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but remains forever.” (Psalm 125:1, AMP)

//God is trustworthy. He has always been trustworthy and always will be trustworthy. If anyone walked up to me at anytime and asked, “Can God be trusted?” I would answer without hesitation and unequivocally, “Of course He can be trusted. He can be trusted completely.”
And yet there have been times when my trust in Him has wavered, weakened. And I acknowledge that has nothing to do with my Father; my lack of trust or weakened trust has to do with me. My uncertainty that although He can do the impossible, that thing that I am longing for, I am not sure that He will.
And there have been times when He has not answered my prayers they way I wanted Him to. Like when two of my sisters died within a few years of each other. Even after we had prayed in faith and believed.
But I am learning to know my Father better. Learning more of His character. Learning that no matter how much I know, I will always know in part. But finding it to be true that those who know Him will trust Him.//
And to know Him is to love Him and rest in His love and in His good plan for me. Every time I choose to trust Him even when I do not understand, I am loving Him well.
