In God We Trust?

A friend and I are suppossed to give a speech on trust. It's supposed to involve both trusting God and trusting frends and we're having trouble finding appropriate Bible verses. Where would be some good places to look?

I am really glad to hear you're gonna tackle this topic. In all honesty, trust in God is probably the one issue that every Christian struggles with the most.

There are a lot of verses you can look and pray through on trust.

My favorite is Proverbs 3:5-6:

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence rely not; in all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths."

I like it not only because it's so straightforward but because it calls me out of laziness and eliminates any excuses on my part.

Here are some more that I hope (and God knows) you'll like:

Matthew 6:6; 7:7-8, 11; 21:22
Hebrews 2:13; 10:22
1 John 5:14-15
Isaiah 65:24
John 16:23-24
Psalm 13:6; 25:2; 31:15; 37:3; 118:8; 145:18-19
Acts 27:25
2 Cor. 1:9
2 Tim. 1:14

I hope these help.

Good luck on your talk. Be sure you PRAY before planning, before practicing and before giving your talk.

It's far easier to talk about trusting God than to actually do it

Trust me.
