Trust in the Lord


This past semester, I was in a Bible study which focused on the promises of God.  We spent a considerable amount of time contemplating promises God has made to us–both promises found in the Bible that are for everyone and promises God has made to us individually–and exploring which of those promises are easy for us to believe God for and which ones are not.  Planning for this trip has really put my faith to the test already.  I wanted to share some verses that I have been meditating on.  These were given to me for something completely unrelated to this trip, but they were really pertinent to my situation.

Jeremiah 29:11: ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you a future and a hope.’

1 Peter 5:7: Casting the whole of your care [all your anxieties, all your worries, all your concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for you affectionately and cares about you watchfully.

1 Corinthians 16: 13-14: Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be men of courage; be strong.  Do everything in love.

Philippians 1:9-11: And this is my prayer: that you may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ – to the glory and praise of God.

1 Corinthians 13:7: Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening].

Hebrews 10: 35-36: Do not, therefore, fling away your fearless confidence, for it carries a great and glorious compensation of reward.  For you have need of steadfast patience and endurance, so that you may perform and fully accomplish the will of God, and thus receive and carry away [and enjoy to the full] what is promised.

1 Corinthians 2:4-5: My message and my preaching were not with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power, so that your faith might not rest on men’s wisdom but on God’s power.
