2 Samuel 22:31 As for God, His way is perfect; the word of the Lord is tried. He is a Shield to all those who trust and take refuge in Him [AMP] Trust is.
We live in time when the word trust doe not carry the value it once did. We must carefully ensure our thoughts are not contaminated by the carnality and views of the world. Joshua and Daniel displayed steadfast trust in two extreme situations.
Daniel did so when his trust was tested for his confession and faithfulness. Joshua did so on personal level with his family teaching them of the great deliverance and the future he experienced in the promise land. Imagine how Joshua taught his family about the mana and quail? Teaching them that this daily supply was the minimum that God wanted to do for his people.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths [AMP]
Trusting God at times in our life may require extreme application of faith, but know that when we trust God no matter what the situation is we win! Always remember Joshua and Daniel, they displayed trust in two extreme situations. They never wavered or doubted.
