“ Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” (Proverbs 30:5)
When we put our trust in God, we can rest assured we are in good hands. But how do we know we can trust Him? Read His Word. Has He not made good on every promise? All throughout the bible, when people put their trust in Him, He helped them. Eventually they learned that by trusting in Him, they did not need to fear what would happen to them. They realized His power in helping them. Even when they had no idea what was going to happen, they trusted Him to take care of it and it became a shield to them. It gave them hope.
