Darkness has no belonging.
In the light of God each one must answer
to the trust buried deep in our hearts.

Trust is what builds a soul. Is the choice that gives joy one of temporary
carnal pleasures or spiritually more edifying and endlessly enduring?
Broken trust is why we have become the abomination that we are.
If we honor the lie we miss the truth.

Trust is like a puzzle and it involves our deepest desires.
Relationships, Money, Education, Government, Medical, etc. issues.
Many men crawl on their bellies searching for sustenance as they slither
through their almost unconscious desperate life. Once they obtain their
possession, they hide among associates unaware of the damaged goods
or wounded souls left behind. The only salvation for such is to stand and
listen. If fortunate enough to be humble without violence, and prodding
from others not to take it, realization may come; realization that anger
cannot cover misery but only increase it. As such, truth becomes one’s
greatest weapon and fear the worst enemy. Trust outside self rises to
a higher level allowing true liberty to arrive while in mortal bondage.


The LORD is good, A stronghold in the day of trouble;
And He knows those who trust in Him. ~ Nahum 1:7

Thus says the LORD: "Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes

                                                         ┗► Evil has no color but dark.

No man is higher than what God Himself can do, for each
one of us in His promise of salvation, when one turns to Him.
Much of what we trust in is what we hope for. Does one hope for
those carnal things that displease God, ignoring or abandoning His
clearly defined goodness, that is found in Him and His word?


... Commit your way to the LORD, Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass. ~ Psalms 37:3-5

It is each souls quest to honor the Lord and
His spoken word is where spiritual protection arises.


Beyond the material trust has supernal qualities
The LORD knows those who trust in Him
The LORD does not forsake those who seek Him
Blessings come upon those who trusts in the LORD
Do not put your trust in princes or in a son of man
Feed on His faithfulness & commit your way to Him
Humble yourselves and cast all your cares upon Him   
Be sober, vigilant; Resist the devil, steadfast in faith
The righteous’ heart is steadfast trusting in God
Praise His word and trust in God
Trust in God’s salvation removes fear
Trust in the LORD more than your self
Trust in the LORD over putting confidence in man
Submit to God; Resist the devil and he will flee

in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy. ~ 1st Timothy 6:17


Everyone’s greatest mortal quality is ignorance. ◄┓                                          
Rich can be a relative term. Rich in knowledge may not necessarily

what man has devised. Truth is written on the hearts, from the Holy Spirit,
where conscious reveals genuineness over callous rejection of what
is found in His goodness and delivery of universal truth.

us to His living way where death no longer has dominion over us.


And we have such trust through Christ toward God. ~ 2nd Corinthians 3:4

No embrace is tighter than His love for us, and so we love Him.
                                              ┗► His Love has been given beyond measure.


... our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of
the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; ... ~ 2nd Corinthians 3:5-6

the dead books that blow across the ages of time.
