Scriptures for Encouragement – Trusting God

Marty reads Scriptures to encourage us to Trust God.

Trust or Not to Trust

Kathy—When we are in a hard place the first decision we have to make is to trust God or harden our hearts & handle things our own way. The only recourse you have if you don’t trust God is to take control of the situation. Control is about ME, my feelings, my rights, and my desires. To trust God we must embrace the truth about His character and His ways consistently until belief is consistent in us. Prov.3:5-6, KJV — “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;  6  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.”

Take a Step

As the people of God assemble today and they sing out praises and worship and they hear the powerful Word of God taught, may they realize it is time to take yet another step. May each one take a step more in the direction the Lord has them headed in within their bent, their calling, their purpose. This is the season for stepping up to the next level of purpose and function in the Kingdom of God. Prov.3:5-6, Amp — “Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding.  6  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].”

Correction and Offense

Kathy — Gen.4:5, “But for Cain and his offering God had no respect or regard.” ManWalkAwayDoor.pngListen to that wording. There was something amuck with Cain’s heart and character already for God to have no respect for him as well as his offering. His character flaws became obvious when His behavior and action was not accepted by God. Instead of humbling himself before God for a son’s correction, He took offense! Prov.3:11, TPT — “My child, when the Lord God speaks to you, never take his words lightly, and never be upset when he corrects you.“

Solutions to Present Challenges

Those trying/challenging circumstances that made a pronounced entrance into the LookingAheadLadderhistory books in the early part of the 20th Century drove some to excel. They also enabled some who had certain knowledge, skill-sets, personality wiring, and creativity to get traction in spite of the slippery pavement of uncertainty. For those who will stand on tiptoe and stretch their neck to look beyond fears, immediate obstacles and predictions based on limited knowledge, there will always be solutions and vision waiting that can be applied to present challenges.


Keep Mercy and Truth

ManPrayLookUpMay your heart keep Jehovah’s commandments. May they give you long life, good years and peace. May you be diligent to keep mercy and truth near you. Fasten them around your neck so that you are continually reminded of them and so they stay close and ready to apply. May you find favor and much success in the sight of God and people. (Prov.3:1-4)

May the Lord be Your Confidence

WalkingI pray you find wisdom and may you find long life in her right hand and riches and honor in her left hand (Prov.3:16).  May wisdom and discretion be life to your soul and adornment to your neck and may you walk in your way securely and your foot not stumble. May you not be afraid when you lie down. May the Lord be your confidence and keep your foot from being caught (vv.21-26)

Prayer and Focus

PrayingHandsFoldedWith a purpose, a promise, we know what to get into agreement with and we know what to target with prayer. But it is possible to get into agreement with it in the prayer closet and get out of agreement with it in day-to-day struggles and conversations. It comes down to what we are focused on and what has caused us to be focused upon it. (Prov.3:5-6)

Guard Attitude and Gratitude

(Kathy Gabler)—Our faith and trust in God is our stand of agreement that opens the earth and the circumstances and the day and the moment to Him. Basically, Father told me to guard my attitude and my gratitude, and I learned the surest way to do that is to make trust a priority every time a contrary wind stings my face. My confidence in Him cannot be passive nor frail. It must be a deliberate daily decision. Thankfulness too is a daily deliberate decision. For me that decision starts when I remind my soul that He is good and He is in the moment.

Your Home Fuller This Year

May your home be fuller this year—full of the things you have needed, full of the evidences of victories and full of love and good, productive fellowship.  “The curse of the Lord is in and on the house of the wicked, but He declares blessed (joyful and favored with blessings) the home of the just and consistently righteous.” (Prov.3:33, Amp)
