Webster describes trust as Itís a firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing; confident belief; faith. Itís the person or thing in which confidence is placed. Itís custody; care. Itís something committed into the care of another; a charge. The Condition and resulting obligation of having confidence placed in one. Itís reliance on something in the future, hope. Itís reliance on the intentions and ability of a purchase to pay in the future; credit. In law terms itís a legal title to property held by one party (the trustee) for the benefit of another (the beneficiary). Itís the right of the Beneficiary to the property.

As a man or women our trust is in God. Psalms 71:5  For You are my hope, O Lord GOD; You are my trust from my youth.

Psalms 141:8 But my eyes are upon You, O GOD the Lord; In You I take refuge;
Do not leave my soul destitute.

1 Timothy 6:20 Ė 21 (KJV) O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane and vain babblings, and oppositions of science falsely so called: 21 Which some professing have erred concerning the faith. Grace be with thee. Amen.

Trust drives away fear and we have more fear to day that any time in our history as Americans, terror on every side. Is 12:1-3 (KJV)   1 And in that day thou shalt say, O LORD, I will praise thee: though thou wast angry with me, thine anger is turned away, and thou comfortedst me. 2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation. 3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.

What comforting words for anyone living in our world today and we just need to trust the Lord regardless of the circumstances. We are seeing so much emphasis put upon the Christians in the political arena it is causing Christians to be misunderstood. Republicans are not all Christians, as well as Democrats are not all Christians. It is not who your are, it is who do you serve?

We canít trust in friends, brothers or sisters, riches or our selves, we trust in the Lord and His written Word the Bible. 1 Tim 4:10-11 (NKJV) 10 For to this end we both labor and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of those who believe. 11 These things command and teach.

Trust is putting into action that affection and love that is needed in our world for survival. We were created by God, He instructed, and entrusted us to care for the world and one another, as male and female. We are to multiply and replenish this planet with the ability and talents entrusted to us that produces unity, togetherness among husband and wife. We have an obligation to God to love Him, trust Him, and as we do we grow in all dimensions of our lives.

God has given us custody of this temple we call the body, which we are of the Holy Spirit. He created us all with the Spirit of God with in us as we breathe this air, He created. But everyone that breaths is not Christian, for they have not called upon the name of the Lord to forgive them of sins committed. What we do with this body  determines what we shall be now and in the future. I trust we constantly want to get better and better in all areas of our lives. That is hope in action, we are not perfect but we are becoming more like our master, as we serve Him, and that is obeying Him.

Now when we think of trust in the matters of the law it takes on even greater meaning. The Lord legally put us here as man, we are the trustees of His benefits, He is the Beneficiary and we are the trustees, we are His property. He called us and ordained us to bear fruit, we are serving God and one another in respect to ourselves as the property and Jesus as our benefactor.

Caring seems to follow trust, itís becoming accountable knowing what I know. That is God, Loves me, I trust Him and show it by how much I care about all aspects of my life. Caring seems to be in three parts or ways. 1. Care for God. 2. Care for self. 3. Care for others. Caring is affection at the greatest degree. That is what 1 Corinthians 12 teaches us about love. If we do not care something will show in what we do and say.
