Trust

Adapted from Proverbs 3:5–6; Psalms 125:1, 1:1–3, 112:7, 118:6;

Hebrews 4:14, 10:23, 3:1; Deuteronomy 30:11, 14.

I trust in you with all my heart, and I do not lean on my own under- standing. In all my ways I acknowledge you. You will make my paths straight. For those who trust in you are as Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever.

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord. My delight is in the law of the Lord, and in his law I meditate both day and night. I am like a tree planted by the water; I will not fear when the heat comes. I am not anxious in a year of drought, and I continue to yield fruit. I will never be shaken. For my heart is steadfast, and I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?

Because I have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, I hold fast the confession of my faith without wavering. Jesus is the Apostle and High Priest of myconfession. His commandment is not too difficult for me, nor is it outof reach. But the word is very near me, in my mouth and in my heart, that I should observe it.
