What does it mean to trust?

a sure foundationTo trust in God can be described in several ways.

  1. To place our confidence in God. To be confident in God.
  2. To depend on God.
  3. Trust also speaks of the future and things that are not yet a reality and as such trusting God includes the aspect of hope.
  4. To trust God is to rely on His character, ability and strength.
  5. It is a complete assurance and certainty regarding the character, ability and strength of God.

Trust speaks of confidence, dependence, faith, hope and reliance. The opposite would be doubt, skepticism, suspicion and uncertainty.
