Putting Our Trust In God Analysis

Improved Essays
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the Lord, and depart from evil. Proverbs 3:5-7

After I posted a status on my Facebook page several friends messaged me and asked, "How do I put my trust in God? What precisely should I do?" (I posted the Facebook status in question at the end of this blog)

I found the verses above to be a great "teaching passage" on how anyone can begin to learn the process of "Putting Our Trust In God"!! Above all..."TRUST IS A MUST"!! The verses above give us five steps to follow:

1. First it tells us to trust "with all thine heart," for me... this is best compared with loving someone from the bottom of our

5. Continuing, "fear the Lord" I learned long ago that having fear of the Lord is actually us developing a reverence, respect, an awe and a true devotion to our Lord Jesus Christ! We never have to be afraid of approaching God in praise, worship or prayer, He will ALWAYS be there for us! God is consistently ready to instruct us in all our ways!! The Bible says, The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction. Proverbs 1:7

6. Finally, I think we can all agree that as Christians "WE NEED TO DEPART FROM EVIL", actually we need to RUN FROM EVIL, break free from earthly amusements, enjoyment, thrills and pleasures! Here God's Word is very simply stated; Abstain from all appearance of evil. 1 Thessalonians 5:22 Don't restrain or prevent the Holy Spirit from working in your life by engaging in evil activities. Don't be deceived or fooled by the enemies lies and tricks, make sure that everything you do is for the GLORY OF GOD!! Get rid of anything in your life that is corrupted and polluted by the things of the

    Christians vs. temptations etc. Being obedient to God is one of the most important things to God.

    It does mean that a believer cannot have contact or has to avoid society. It means a recognition of the corrupt characteristics of the world and the avoidance of all the ungodly actions of the world. Romans 12:2 says, “Do not be conformed to this World, but be transformed by the renewal of the mind, that by the testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.” Also, believers are called to go into the world and make disciples as the Great commission states. This would not be done if a believer were to isolate themselves and avoid the world. It is important for a believer to be careful to not give Christian recognition to unsaved people or organization that do not promote Christ and Christian values.…

    Jesus's Sorrow Analysis

    It's the Holy Spirit calling you to admit on the basis of 1 John 1:9, “Dear Lord, I was wrong?” As such, we resolve within our hearts that we will, with the help of God, “cease to do evil, and learn to do good” (Isaiah 1:16). As soon as you confess and repent, God says, “I'm glad you shared that with Me. You're cleansed; now get on with life.” And, you walk away from that confrontation free. If it drives you away from Jesus making you to want to isolate yourself or run to other sins, it is probably a sorrow provoked by accusation. When you find lies lurking beneath your feelings of sorrow -- especially if your feelings persistently drive you into the ground -- you are being falsely accused.…

    Jesus never used the sword to defend or spread His Gospel, but He did use love. Therefore when I witness I would want to be the love of Jesus to that person, because the revelation of the love of Jesus will change any person’s heart. As a witness it is also important to be guided by the Holy Spirit and to let the Holy Spirit speak, move and work through me (Cartsens,…

    God promises in John 3:16 eternal life, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (NIV). The Christian worldview teaches us that God is love and that we must be the same way. Christians are given the hope by leaning on God for his strength instead of our own. God promises to never leave us. The most confusing thing about Christianity is that one is to have faith in someone that cannot be seen.…

    When they heard about it, the Pharisees said that that the only way he did that was because he was the prince of demon. Jesus refutes this claim and goes on to speak about how those who speak against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven. The Holy Spirit is there to live in us and guide us as we live and experience the world but also have faith towards God and His calling for us and these points in Matthew continue to prove that point.…

    The Fear of the Lord Shedrack Wike BIB314 Book of Proverbs September 15, 2015 The Fear of the Lord According to Proverbs 1:7 it says, “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Webster defines wisdom as accumulated philosophic or scientific learning; as in knowledge, judgment, and insight. In Proverbs the wisdom that is discussed there is the wisdom that only comes from God. There are different kinds of fear, and as Christians, we should fear God with a particular kind of fear. We should fear God, not in an irrational and unpredictable way, such that is incompatible with love. Rather, we should fear him in a respectful way, as a child of his in Christ.…

    Deuteronomy 28:1 is the verse that can sum up the theme of obedience, “If you fully obey the LORD your God and carefully follow all his commands I give you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations on earth.” Obedience is stressed in the first commandment love the Lord your God with all your heart soul, and strength. This is the way, God gives us the means to love Him, obedience. Obedience is the only way to be with God, and obedience to God is impossible. The second law tells the story that obedience is not attainable and perhaps, this is a story of the longing of the need the Israelite have to be whole, holy and loved by God. Obedience is essential for communion with God.…
