Trust (Hope) - a relationship of assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something; a person on whom or thing on which one relies: the obligation or responsibility imposed on a person in whom confidence or authority is placed:
Prov. 3:5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Jere. 9: 23: Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches: 24: But let him that glorieth glory in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD.
Even Jesus had to trust in God:
Matt. 26: 39: And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Simon (Peter) trusted in God despite what he thought he knew about fishing. But we see that he did not trust in him totally.
Luke 5: 4: Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5: And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6: And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7: And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.
Do not put your trust in yourself nor man but only God.
Prov. 28: 25: He that is of a proud heart stirreth up strife: but he that putteth his trust in the LORD shall be made fat. 26: He that trusteth in his own heart is a fool: but whoso walketh wisely, he shall be delivered.
Psalms 146: 3: Put not your trust in princes, nor in the son of man, in whom there is no help. 4: His breath goeth forth, he returneth to his earth; in that very day his thoughts perish. 5: Happy is he that hath the God of Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD his God: 6: Which made heaven, and earth, the sea, and all that therein is: which keepeth truth for ever:
Believing in the word of God despite the unbelievers.
Rom. 3: 1: What advantage then hath the Jew? or what profit is there of circumcision? 2: Much every way: chiefly, because that unto them were committed the oracles of God. 3: For what if some did not believe? shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 4: God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar; as it is written, That thou mightest be justified in thy sayings, and mightest overcome when thou art judged.
Habakkuk cried unto God asking when is he going to deliver.
Promises of God will come to pass.
Hab. 10: 2: And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth it. 3: For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. 4: Behold, his soul which is lifted up is not upright in him: but the just shall live by his faith.
God is our father and a father takes care of his children.
Luke 11: 5: And he said unto them, Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go unto him at midnight, and say unto him, Friend, lend me three loaves; 6: For a friend of mine in his journey is come to me, and I have nothing to set before him? 7: And he from within shall answer and say, Trouble me not: the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee. 8: I say unto you, Though he will not rise and give him, because he is his friend, yet because of his importunity he will rise and give him as many as he needeth. 9: And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. 10: For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. 11: If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? 12: Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13: If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
Stand Strong and hold on to the promises of God.
Heb. 10: 35: Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompence of reward. 36: For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 37: For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 38: Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him. 39: But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul.
