Trust-in-the-Lord Tuesday

I thought that this particular Tuesday could use some trust reminders, so here goes:

"I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?"
Psalms 56:11


"God has wisely kept us in the dark concerning future events and reserved for himself the knowledge of them,
that he may train us up in a dependence upon himself and a continued readiness for every event."
Matthew Henry

"In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust:
let me never be put to confusion."
Psalms 71:1


"God is God. Because He is God,
He is worthy of my trust and obedience.
I will find rest nowhere but in His holy will, a will that is unspeakably beyond my largest notions of what He is up to."
Elisabeth Elliot

"It is better to trust in the LORD
than to put confidence in princes."
Psalms 118:9

"Fear is born of Satan, and if we would only take time to think a moment we would see that everything Satan says is founded upon a falsehood. He is the father of lies. Even his fears are falsehoods and his terrors ought to serve as encouragements. When Satan tells you, therefore, that some ill is going to come, you may quietly look in his face and tell him he is a liar. Instead of ill, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life. And then turn to your blessed Lord and say, What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee (Psalm 56:3). Every fear is distrust, and trust is the remedy for fear."
A. B. Simpson

"He will have no fear of bad news;
his heart is steadfast, trusting the Lord."
Psalm 112:7

Thank you soooo much for the faith reminders. I really needed them tonight. I'm dreading Tuesday evening, but know that God is still in charge. Blessings.

These are all so wonderful, and SO encouraging. Praying for God's will to be done, and for us to trust.

Amen!! I am sure I will feel grief if the outcome of the election isn't favorable, but I WILL trust in the Lord of Heaven and Earth!

(Maybe you could PM me and tell me how you get those great little boxes around your quotes...);)

I tried to leave a comment on this post the other day but my laptop was acting strange. I'm back today to thank you for reminding me of all these reasons to trust in the Almighty God. I've been having a rough month and the morning I cam here to read your words (As I do each morning) I was comforted in the knowledge of Who Reigns in my life.

Thank you, friend.
