‘Then they opened their treasures and presented Him with gifts.’

- The giving and receiving of gifts is part of the way we were created.
- Something about each person, is the longing to be a blessing to others.
- The Wise Men brought their gifts and presented them to the Lord.
- We too can bring our greatest gift, our hearts, and present it to our Lord.

Prayer: Lord, thank You that I can give my heart and my life to You today. I hold nothing back, but I choose to surrender myself to You. Be my Lord and be my God. Amen.

What Does It Mean To Trust?

November 15, 2019

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO TRUST?

To trust in God can be described in several ways.

1. To place our confidence in God. To be confident in God.
2. To depend on God.
3. Trust also speaks of the future and things that are not yet a reality and as such trusting God includes the aspect of hope.
4. To trust God is to rely on His character, ability and strength.
5. It is a complete assurance and certainty regarding the character, ability and strength of God.

Trust speaks of confidence, dependence, faith, hope and reliance. The opposite would be doubt, skepticism, suspicion and uncertainty.

MANY OF THE THINGS WE PUT OUR TRUST IN ARE UNCERTAIN

Beauty, Health & Physical Strength – Proverbs 31:30 ‘Charm is deceptive and beauty is fleeting…’

a. Other People – Psalm 146:3 ‘Do not put your trust in princes or in mortal men, who cannot save.’
b. Wealth and Money – Proverbs 23:5 ‘cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they shall surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.’
c. Tomorrow – Proverbs 27:1 ‘Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day will bring forth.’ (Tomorrow’s another day).
d. Life – James 4:14 ‘…you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.’
e. Fame and Glory – 1 Peter 1:24 ‘All men are like grass, and all their glory is like the flowers of the field; the grass withers and the flower fall…’
