Trust has to start with a reliable source

What is trust? According to Oxford Dictionaries, “Trust is a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something: “relations have to be built on trust” ·

 Merriam Webster says, “trust is  to rely on or on the truth of ; to place confidence in someone or something ;to be confident
 So give me your definitions of Trust… send me your ans.
 According to Changing Minds, “Trust is both and emotional and logical act. Emotionally, it is where you expose your vulnerabilities to people, but believing they will not take advantage of your openness. Logically, it is where you have assessed the probabilities of gain and loss, calculating expected utility based on hard performance data, and concluded that the person in question will behave in a predictable manner. In practice, trust is a bit of both. I trust you because I have experienced your trustworthiness and because I have faith in human nature”.  changing minds trust, trusting  We feel trust. Emotions associated with trust include companionship, friendship, love, agreement, relaxation, comfort.
 So tell me what are your thoughts on trust?
How do you really feel about truth and trusting?
We can Trust God

Trust God with your worries, secrets,  your alls and everythings

 Sometimes I feel so uneasy about trusting others. Sometimes I can’t even trust myself to do exactly what I’m supposed to do. For example, I can’t trust myself to read my Bible sometimes. Sometimes I can’t trust my friends to tell me the truth about a thing I may ask them about. Sometimes I feel like I can’t trust my doctors.  Even because of the experiences I’ve had with the court systems I truly know I can’t trust them. My oldest son had a set of lawyers and God knows I could not trust them, some non trusts of people or things comes natural, and are warranted. Some people you just cannot trust and when I say trust I mean, trust them  to do the right things. If we look at the Political races, for President, you may find yourself, asking yourself who can I trust, and is there any trust among thieves? Most do not trust public officials, I don’t even want to discuss how money can influence trust lol! (a whole new topic)
BUT TRUST, you do not have to look very far to find a trust issue. Look right in your home, in your social circle, in your family circles,  in your neighborhoods, and the trust issue goes on …. But trust can be a big issue, when trusting may really matter.
Guess what? When u do not trust someone or something that can be a very miserable feeling, a bad feeling, a lonely feeling, a terrible feeling. I know some of you have never thought about it because you can trust everyone, lol! But on the serious side… everybody is not to be trusted and even if they could be trusted, there would still be issues. The issues are, you  never really know, for sure. Then think about the times when you really trusted someone and discovered that on their part, there was no trust.

So after thinking seriously about trust, what is your conclusion to the questions stated above? Well, there is one true answer to those questions:
Question: “What does the Bible say about trust?” ( Got Questions. Org)
Answer: The words translated “trust” in the Bible literally mean “a bold, confident, sure security or action based on that security.” Trust is not exactly the same as faith, which is the gift of God (Ephesians 2:8-9). Rather, trusting is what we do because of the faith we have been given. Trusting is believing in the promises of God in all circumstances, even in those where the evidence seems to be to the contrary. Hebrews 11 talks about faith, which is accepting and believing the truth that God reveals about Himself, supremely in the person of His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, the practical consequence of faith in God is trust, which we prove by living out our full acceptance of God’s promises day by day. Furthermore, it is by this trust that we are promised peace: “You will keep in peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you” (Isaiah 26:3).The classic verse regarding trust is Proverbs 3:5: “Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” This verse sums up the Bible’s teaching on trust. First, it is the Lord in whom we are to trust, not ourselves or our plans, and certainly not the world’s wisdom and devices. We trust in the Lord because He and He alone is truly trustworthy. His Word is trustworthy (Psalm 93:5; 111:7; Titus 1:9), His nature is faithful and true (Deuteronomy 7:9; Psalm 25:10; 145:13; 146:6), and His plans for us are perfect and purposeful (Isaiah 46:10; Jeremiah 29:11). Further, because of God’s nature, we are to trust Him with all our hearts, committing every aspect of our lives to Him in complete confidence. Finally, we are not in trust in ourselves because our understanding is temporal, finite, and tainted by our sin natures. Trusting in ourselves is like walking confidently across a rotten wooden bridge over a yawning chasm thousands of feet deep. Disaster inevitably follows.Trust in God is a feature of many of the psalms of David. There are 39 references to trust in the Psalms alone, whether referring to trusting in God and His Word, or to not trusting in riches or the things of this world. It is on the basis of this trust that David finds deliverance from all the evil he encounters. Many of David’s psalms describe situations when he was pursued by Saul and his army, as well as his other enemies, and always did the Lord come to his aid. One thing that can be noted about biblical trust is that it always engenders further trust in our God. The man of God never stops trusting in God completely. His faith may be knocked, He may stumble, or He may fall into the foulest of sins, but “though he stumble, he will not fall, for the LORD upholds him with his hand” (Psalm 37:24). The man of God knows that, though trials will beset in this life, his trust will not waiver because that trust is based on faith in the promises of God: the promise of eternal joy with the Lord and the promise of an inheritance that “can never perish, spoil and fade” (1 Peter 1:4).

TRUST GOD

TRUST GOD

 But these were people/ things that trusted Yahweh.  So I say where should you put your trust? This is God I trust.
 Sometimes when it is very hard to trust people, the only choice that is evident, is God Our heavenly Father. He asked us to  Trust in Him with all of our hearts and lean not to our own understanding.
WE SHOULD TRUST HIM WHEN WE CANNOT TRUST NO ONE ELSE. DON’T WORRY IF U CANNOT SEE HIM, WITH THE NAKED EYE,  HE IS THERE. TALK TO HIM, TELL HIM, ASK HIM, BELIEVE HIM, TRUST HIM, WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE ANYONE TO TRUST. U CAN TRUST HIM. YOU CAN BE TOLD THAT A MILLION TIMES, BUT UNTIL U ARE PUT IN A POSITION WHERE YOU WILL HAVE TO TRUST HIM, THEN AND ONLY THEN CAN YOU LEARN TO TRUST HIM. As for the days and times we live in believe me that day will come sooner than later. You will need to genuinely trust someone. Have you ever wanted to tell something so bad until you felt like your heart was about to burst, if so you had better trust God, with your information because sometimes the person you trust probably will not be the person to trust. So get on your knees and tell it to God. You can truly trust Him.
