                                   2 Samuel 22:3, 31                                             Pastor Rick Jackson


Here is a message for everyone. Young, old, man, woman, child, red, yellow, black, brown, Caucasian… everyone. Trust the One True God and you can shoulder any burden, climb any obstacle, get through anything. Trust God. Trust in God. This is the message for this hour. This is the message for any hour!




1. Salvation comes thru Trusting Christ [1 Timothy 4:10 For therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe.]


2. Security comes thru Trusting Christ [2 Corinthians 1:9-10 But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead: Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;]


3. Stability comes thru Trusting Christ [Nahum 1:7 The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and he knoweth them that trust in him.; Psalm 125:1 They that trust in the LORD shall be as mount Zion, which cannot be removed, but abideth for ever.]




“The beginning of anxiety is the end of faith. The beginning of true faith is the end of anxiety.” – George Mueller

Learn to trust through difficulties. Paul said, “I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”


1. Trust reminds us that God is in Control [Isaiah 12:2 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.


2. Trust reminds us that God is Love [Philippians 2:19 But I trust in the Lord Jesus to send Timotheus shortly unto you, that I also may be of good comfort, when I know your state.; Psalm 36:7 How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings.]


3. Trust reminds us that God is to be Obeyed [Isaiah 50:10 Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.]



1. Trust in God can Change any Situation [the Red Sea, the walls of Jericho, the lion’s den, your life]

Philemon 1:22 But withal prepare me also a lodging: for I trust that through your prayers I shall be given unto you.


2. Trust in God can Change us [1 Timothy 6:17 Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy;]


3. Trust in God can give us Compassion [Psalm 143:8 Cause me to hear thy lovingkindness in the morning; for in thee do I trust: cause me to know the way wherein I should walk; for I lift up my soul unto thee.]


He Maketh No Mistake

My Father’s way may twist and turn,

 my heart may throb and ache.

 But in my soul I’m glad I know,

 He maketh no mistake.

My cherished plans may go astray,

 my hopes may fade away,

 but still I’ll trust my Lord to lead,

 for He doth know the way.

Tho’night be dark and it may seem

 that day will never break;

 I’ll pin my faith, my all in Him,

 He maketh no mistake.

There’s so much now I cannot see,

 my eyesight’s far too dim;

 but come what may, I’ll simply trust

 and leave it all to Him.

For by and by the mist will lift

 and plain it all He’ll make.

 Through all the way, tho’dark to me,

 He made not one mistake.
