Trust the Lord your God with all of your heart!

Trust God copy

Commentary by:  Gordon King

Trust the Lord your God with all of your heart, mind, and soul.  Keep your faith strong and your heart pure.  For the Lord is our provider, protector, and comforter.

Proverbs 3:5-6

5 “Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”

God is pure, righteous, and holy.  He never lies, never fails, and keeps all of His promises to us.

1 Corinthians 1:9

9 “God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”

By faith we are saved, by faith we shall endure.  For without faith we cannot believe or trust in God.

Mark 11:22

22 ‘So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God.”‘

Hebrews 11:6

6 “But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.”

There will be many times in the life of a believer when he or she shall be brought to their knees in pain, sorrow and misery.  It is very easy to distrust our Lord and loose our faith.  But, it is vitally important for every believer to keep their faith and trust in the Lord. 

When times are tough and life seems hopeless, the Lord your God is with you.  He shall guide you and lead you down the righteous path. 

When you feel alone and deserted, the Lord your God is with you.  He knows your pain, is aware of your circumstances and wants nothing more than your happiness. 

With faith all things are possible.  We are children of the Most High God of the Universe.  We are a chosen people, of a royal priesthood, a holy nation.  We are special people.  We are the personal possession of God Almighty Himself!

1 Peter 2:9

9 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light”

So the next time you encounter difficulties in life, remember who you are, and who you belong to.  With God all things are possible.

Give thanks unto the Lord in all things.  Praise the Lord continually.  Worship the Lord God with all of your heart.  Believe that He can do all things.  He shall provide all of our needs.  Seek first the Kingdom of God and all of these things shall be added unto you.

Matthew 6:33

33 “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Lord in heaven please hear my prayer.  You are worthy of my praise and worship oh Lord.  Without you I am nothing, but with you I am Your priest, Your ambassador, and Your child.  I am Yours and I thank you each and everyday for that.  I thank you for Your patience and Your mercy upon me.  I thank you for all that You do for me and all that You provide for me oh Lord.  Thank you God, thank you!   Amen

God Bless!

    Are there translations of the Bible that are not trustworthy? I know of one or two translations out of sixty-plus English translations that are not trustworthy. Many take the position that the King James Bible is the only dependable translation of God’s word.


    THE LIVING BIBLE-Paraphrased (TLB)

    John 3:16 For God so loved world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.(KJV)

    John 3:16 For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son so that anyone who believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (TLB-P)

    John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, the He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. (NASB)

    You will notice in the KJV and the TLB-P use lower case when translating, he and him. The NASB uses He and Him when talking about God and Jesus. Should God and Jesus be capitalized? Of course. Does that mean that the KJV and TLB-P are not trustworthy translations? NO IT DOES NOT. All three translations say the same thing.

    Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (KJV)

    Acts 2:38 And Peter replied, “Each one of you must turn from sin, return to God, and be baptized in the name Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; then you also shall receive this gift, the Holy Spirit. (TLB-P)

    Acts 2:38 Peter said to them, “Repent, and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (NASB)

    Notice all three translation say that in order to have your sins forgiven you must repent and be baptized. Some deny that repentance and baptism are essential for sins to be forgiven. MEN DENY THIS, NOT BECAUSE OF INACCURATE TRANSLATIONS. THEY SIMPLY CHOSE NOT TO BELIEVE IT.

    Men are not going to be lost because of faulty translations. Men are lost because they refuse to believe in the translations they trust.

    99% of all translation are trustworthy. My translation, of choice, is the NEW AMERICAN STANDARD BIBLE. You can get to heaven by reading the KJV, TLB-P, the NIV and many other translations.
