What IS trust?
Definition: Firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing. (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/)
The Biblical definition: to have faith in someone or something; believe that someone (usually GOD) will be good to you; to believe that someone is good, and speaks good words; to follow something that you think is true; to follow something/someone as if it/they were true; when we believe in a person.
Trust is both an 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. We feel trust. Emotions associated with trust include companionship, friendship, love, agreement, relaxation, comfort. (Changing Minds)
What does the Word of GOD say about TRUST?
Do not put your trust in idols....I, the LORD, am your GOD. (Leviticus 19:4)
i trust in GOD, so why should i be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me? (Psalm 56:11)
See, GOD has come to save me. i will trust in Him and not be afraid. The LORD GOD is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation. (Isaiah 12:2)
Tell those who are rich in this world not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone. But their trust should be in the living GOD, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. (I Timothy 6:17)
We are made right in GOD's sight when we trust in JESUS CHRIST to take away our sins. And we all can be saved in this same way, no matter who we are or what we have done. (Romans 3:22)
i no longer count on my own goodness or my ability to obey GOD's law, but i trust CHRIST to save me. For GOD's way of making us right with Himself depends on faith. (Philippians 3:9)
We know how much GOD loves us, and we have put our trust in Him. GOD is love, and all who live in love live in GOD, and GOD lives in them. (I John 4:16)
And yet many put their trust in horoscopes, the I-Ching, runes, tea leaves, crystal balls, Jeanne Dixon, Feng-shui, voodoo, Nostradamus, fortune cookies, Edgar Cayce, palm readers, ouija boards, spiritists, mediums, soothsayers, witchcraft. All these in all their disguises are occult practices. GOD has specific laws against the occult (Deuteronomy 18:9-13).
GOD is the Creator of all things...He is Sovereign...He is in control. So why do people put their trust in daily horoscopes, on how the I-Ching lands, or the way the tea leaves float around in hot water, or the "prophecies" of Jeanne Dixon, or Edgar Cayce or Nostradamus? These are counterfeits of GOD's power and have as their root a system of beliefs totally opposed to GOD. "Anyone who does these things is an object of horror and disgust to the LORD." (Deuteronomy18:12)
The acid test for identifying a prophet of GOD is recorded by Moses in Deuteronomy 18:21-22. According to this Bible passage (and others), GOD's prophets, as distinct from satan's spokesmen, are 100 percent accurate in their predictions. There is no room for error. (reason.org)
If Dixon, Cayce or Nostradamus lived in Moses' time, they would have been put to death for making false prophecies!
If anyone wants to foretell the future, if anyone wants to put his trust in something that's 100% reliable, if anyone wants true peace of mind knowing that his daily forecast is Truth and Best -- the Bible is 100% trustworthy. No ifs...no buts...no second guessing. The Word of GOD (THE GOD of the Universe) is totally reliable. It's true wisdom.
Unique among all books ever written, the Bible accurately foretells specific events-in detail-many years, sometimes centuries, before they occur. Approximately 2500 prophecies appear in the pages of the Bible, about 2000 of which already have been fulfilled to the letter—no errors. (The remaining 500 or so reach into the future and may be seen unfolding as days go by.) Since the probability for any one of these prophecies having been fulfilled by chance averages less than one in ten (figured very conservatively) and since the prophecies are for the most part independent of one another, the odds for all these prophecies having been fulfilled by chance without error is less than one in 102000 (that is 1 with 2000 zeros written after it)! (Dr. Hugh Ross)
So a person looking for answers, for daily advice, for direction, for signs of the end times -- the best place to look because it's 100% accurate is GOD's Word -- the Living Bible.
