Let us then renounce all treaty with them upon any score but that of total separation, and under God trust our cause to our swords." ~ Samuel Adams

"When we trust our brother, whom we have seen, we are learning to trust God, whom we have not seen." ~ James Freeman Clarke

"I trust you as holy men trust God; you could do nought that was not pure and loving, though the deed might pierce me unto death." ~ George Eliot

"God says, "there's nothing you can do to be accepted, trust me and and let me change you." And at the end of the day, acceptance isn't about what I do, or what I don't do. Acceptance is about me trusting God to take me exactly as I am and take me to something different. And I think that's what we should have for people." ~ LeCrae

"TRUST in GOD and then GO and DO." ~ Henry B. Eyring

"It's a form of bullying, in my opinion, to make sure that your kid gets the best grades, the best jobs and all that sort of stuff. I just want my child to be happy. I want him to do his best and trust God in the rest, but I'm not going to bully him." ~ Nick Vujicic

"In a very real way, the poor are our teachers. They show us that people’s value is not measured by their possessions or how much money they have in the bank. A poor person, a person lacking material possessions, always maintains his or her dignity. The poor can teach us much about humility and trust in God." ~ Pope Francis

"The most important lesson that I have learned is to trust God in every circumstance. Lots of times we go through different trials and following God's plan seems like it doesn't make any sense at all. God is always in control and he will never leave us." ~ Allyson Felix

"Trusting God is not a matter of my feelings but of my will." ~ Jerry Bridges

"I realize anew that, just as we must learn to obey God one choice at a time, we must also learn to trust God one circumstance at a time. Trusting God is not a matter of my feelings but of my will. I never feel like trusting God when adversity strikes, but I can choose to do so even when I don’t feel like it. That act of the will, though, must be based on belief, and belief must be based on truth." ~ Jerry Bridges

"Prayer is the most tangible expression of trust in God. If we would trust God for our persecuted brothers and sisters in other countries, we must be diligent in prayer for their rulers. If we would trust God when decisions of government in our own country go against our best interests, we must pray for His working in the hearts of those officials and legislators who make those decisions. The truth that the king's heart is in the hand of the Lord is meant to be a stimulus to prayer, not a stimulus to a fatalistic attitude." ~ Jerry Bridges

"We learn to trust man when he does what we expect him to do; we learn to trust God when He doesn't do what we expect Him to do." ~ Royce White

"My favorite six words in recovery are: trust God, clean house, and help others." ~ Matthew Perry

"Funds are low again, hallelujah! That means God trusts us and is willing to leave His reputation in our hands." ~ Charles Studd

"I know a lot of Christians who have been in ministry and walked away from it because the pressure can be too great. And there's a lot of Christians who at the same time would say like well why does God do [certain things]. What I found is Christians regardless of whatever their experience is who trust God more and learn to go through those moments of challenge and persevere. Usually the end result is an experience and interaction with the Holy Spirit that's greater than it was previously. And for me, there is no pursuit that I desire or enjoy more than that interaction." ~ Stephen Baldwin

"Scripture teaches us that we should trust God and not lean on our own wisdom or understanding. To do this, we have to strive to know God intimately, walking by faith and not by sight. This may not be easy at first, but it starts with simple obedience." ~ Craig Groeschel

"I think that it's the passion for the game that we have and just the work ethic. We try to work as hard as we can every game. Trusting God and help from our parents have gotten us to where we are now." ~ Malcolm Subban

"Writing is this act of faith - a bit like driving in the fog: you can hardly see just in front of you. But you trust God's leading you and you just write into the space you can see ahead of you." ~ Ann Voskamp

"We must cease striving and trust God to provide what He thinks is best and in whatever time He chooses to make it available. But this kind of trusting doesn't come naturally. It's a spiritual crisis of the will in which we must choose to exercise faith." ~ Charles R. Swindoll

"Shortly before my arrest, my girlfriend at the time, who's now my wife of ten years, told me she was quitting drugs and going to church. I went with her once but that was it. After the arrest, I didn't know what I was going to do. She told me to trust in God but I mean, I was looking at ten years and was like, "God? I'm not dying, I need a lawyer. I need bail."" ~ Christian Hosoi

"Everything happens for a reason, and sometimes, that might be difficult to understand, especially when things don't go the way we plan or expect. If we choose to see things positively and trust in God, he will fulfill his purpose in our lives." ~ Betsy Landin

"Only by trusting in God can a man carrying responsibility find repose." ~ Dwight D. Eisenhower

"If you learn to trust God when the sun is shining, it is easier to trust Him on the day when there are dark and lowering clouds in the sky and you are in one of life's storms." ~ J. Vernon McGee

"It pays to trust God with all and to make no reservation." ~ Smith Wigglesworth

"Faith is a living, bold trust in God's grace, so certain of God's favour that it would risk death a thousand times trusting in it. Such confidence and knowledge of God's grace makes you happy, joyful and bold in your relationship to God and all creatures. The Holy Spirit makes this happen through faith. Because of it, you freely, willingly and joyfully do good to everyone, serve everyone, suffer all kinds of things, love and praise the God who has shown you such grace." ~ Martin Luther

"We are overcome by the "cares ... of this life" when we are paralyzed by fear of the future, which hinders our going forward in faith, trusting in God and His promises. It is up to each of us to set the priorities and to do the things that make our soil good and our harvest plentiful." ~ Dallin H. Oaks

"Put your trust in god are the most dangerous words in the English language." ~ Hemant Mehta

"You can't trust anybody with power." ~ Newt Gingrich

"Humility may well be one of the most difficult of the fruit of the Spirit to be cultivated in us - and to maintain. That's because without humility, it's not likely that you will put your complete trust in God." ~ Joyce Meyer

"Trusting God brings life." ~ Joyce Meyer

"Well, I kind of split my life into two pieces. One was where my chess career lies. There, I kept my sanity, so to speak, and my logic. And the other was my religious life. I tried to apply what I learned in the church to my chess career too. But I still was studying chess. I wasn't just "trusting in God" to give me the moves." ~ Bobby Fischer

"Trusting God means looking beyond what we can see to what God sees." ~ Charles Stanley

"Too many Christians live their lives like slaves - to the devil - because they believe his lies more than they trust God." ~ Joyce Meyer

"Men are able to trust one another, knowing the exact degree of dishonesty they are entitled to expect." ~ Stephen Leacock

"Suffering can serve us. Suffering tests our trust in God's promises. And we have a great interest in knowing the truth about our trust in Him." ~ Mark Dever

"You see, when we talk about perfect trust, we're talking about what gives us roots, character, the stability to handle the hard times. Trusting God doesn't alter our circumstances. Perfect trust in Him changes us." ~ Charles R. Swindoll

"When we trust God more than our feelings, it confuses the devil. I mean, when he throws you his best shot and he can't budge you from believing God, he won't know what to do with you anymore." ~ Joyce Meyer

"Somehow proper prayer must put more trust in God’s will than in human wants; otherwise failure to get the things we want will force us to doubt either the power of prayer or the ability of God." ~ Bryan Chapell

"We know in whom we believe, and that, so long as we trust God utterly, all must come right." ~ Janet Erskine Stuart

"The things we worry about the most are the hints we trust God with the least." ~ Craig Groeschel

"No man who enters upon the office to which I have succeeded can fail to recognize how every president of the United States has placed special reliance upon his faith in God. Every president has taken comfort and courage when toldthat the Lord 'will be with thee. He will not fail thee nor forsake thee. Fear not-neither be thou dismayed.' Each of our presidents in his own way has placed a special trust in God. Those who were strongest intellectually were also strongest spiritually." ~ John F. Kennedy

"Submitting self to God is the only real freedom-because the deepest slavery is self-dependence, self-reliance. When you live your life believing that everything (family, finances, relationships, career) depends primarily on you, you're enslaved to your strengths and weaknesses. You're trying to be your own savior. Freedom comes when we start trusting in God's abilities and wisdom instead of our own. Real life begins when we transfer our trust from our own efforts to the efforts of Christ." ~ Tullian Tchividjian

"Jerome Daley reminds us of the beauty, presence, and purpose of God in the waiting period, and that God is just as amazing then as He is at any other time. Readers will grow to trust God even more, and will be greatly rewarded as they are encouraged to faint not." ~ Che Ahn

"He that sowes trusts in God." ~ George Herbert

"Nor can you trust in God because everything that you attempt to trust is coming from someone who is not trustworthy to begin with. So everything that you think, feel or act upon is based upon coming from someone who is untrustworthy. Therefore, you'll always be lost." ~ Wayne Dyer

"My advice is: Don't take yourself too seriously, laugh a lot, enjoy your time with family, and appreciate the unique talents of others. Trust in God, love your neighbor, say you're sorry, forgive, and work hard." ~ Willie Robertson

"There is an essential connection between experiencing God, loving God, and trusting God. You will trust God only as much as you love him. And you will love him to the extent you have touched him, rather that he has touched you." ~ Brennan Manning

"I just trust God. I don't worry about what tomorrow may bring because I know who's bringing it." ~ Tony Gaskins

"We are not perfectly free until we live in pure hope. For when our hope is pure, it no longer trusts exclusively in human and visible means, nor rests in any visible end. He who hopes in God trusts God, Whom he never sees, to bring him to the possession of things that are beyond imagination." ~ Thomas Merton

"When I was quite young, I put my trust in God--not government; and I never get the two confused." ~ Bob Dole

"It is more beautiful to trust in God. The beautiful in this world is all from his hand, declaring the perfection of taste; he is the author of all form; he clothes the lily, he colours the rose, he distils the dewdrop, he makes the music of nature; in a word, he organized us for this life, and imposed its conditions; and they are such guaranty to me that, trustful as a little child, I leave to him the organization of my Soul, and every arrangement for the life after death. I know he loves me." ~ Lew Wallace

"Audacious faith is not passive. Neither is audacious prayer. Every aspiration you have in prayer needs an accompanying action. Otherwise you're not really praying. You're just pontificating. You do the natural. Trust God for the super." ~ Steven Furtick

"It is the easiest thing in the world for us to obey God when He commands us to do what we like, and to trust Him when the path is all sunshine. The real victory of faith is to trust God in the dark, and through the dark. Let us be assured of this, that if the lesson and the rod are of His appointing, and that His all-wise love has engineered the deep tunnel of trial on the heavenward road, He will never desert us during the discipline. The vital thing for us is not to deny and desert Him." ~ Theodore L. Cuyler

"If we are going to learn to trust God in adversity, we must believe God will allow nothing to subvert His glory so He will allow nothing to spoil the good He is working out in us and for us." ~ Jerry Bridges

"Always trust your fellow man. And always cut the cards. Always trust God. And always build your house on high ground. Always love thy neighbor. And always pick a good neighborhood to live in." ~ Robert Fulghum

"Every day before supper and before we went to services on Sundays. My grandmother would read the Bible to me, and my grandfather would pray. We even had devotions before going to pick cotton in the fields. Prayer and the Bible, became a part of my everyday thoughts and beliefs. I learned to put my trust in God and to seek Him as my strength." ~ Rosa Parks

"Things don't always happen the way we planned. As we learn to trust in God's plan, we will see that He has our best interests at heart." ~ Dan Ellis

"In explaining the growth of his faith, psychiatrist Gerald May writes, "I know that God is loving and that God’s loving is trustworthy. I know this directly, through the experience of my life. There have been plenty of times of doubt, especially when I used to believe that trusting God's goodness meant I would not be hurt. But having been hurt quite a bit, I know God's goodness goes deeper than all pleasure and pain it embraces them both." Ruthless Trust, pg 22" ~ Brennan Manning

"You can't trust God to be unmerciful. There you have the beginning of all wisdom." ~ Robert Frost

"If I'm trusting myself, I will stare at all the possible ways I could fail. If I'm trusting God, I will stare at all the possible ways He'll use this whether I fail or succeed." ~ Lysa TerKeurst

"Sometimes, our greatest strengths can be found while trusting God through our greatest obstacles." ~ Si Robertson

"Only let it be trust in God, not in man, not in circumstances, not in any of your own exertions, but real trust in God, and you will be helped in your various necessities... Not in circumstances, not in natural prospects, not in former donors, but solely in God. This is just that which brings the blessing. If we say we trust in Him, but in reality do not, then God, taking us at our word, lets us see that we do not really confide in Him; and hence failure arises. On the other hand, if our trust in the Lord is real, help will surely come." ~ George Muller

"It is much easier to do something than to trust in God. That is why there are so few fellow workers with God and so many workers for Him. We would far rather work for God than believe in Him." ~ Oswald Chambers

"When you don’t understand what is happening, you need to wait, trust God, and rest in His care. He is always faithful to His own." ~ Jim George

"Trust in the Lord is the only true antidote to fear. Focusing on God rather than the trial will keep us from sinking in fear. However, learning to face our fears does not mean we will never have another anxious moment. Faith does not lie in trusting God to stop the storm, but in trusting Him to enable us to walk through the storm. When trouble occurs, He will give us the ability to cope with it." ~ Jill Briscoe

"It is just as important to trust God as it is to obey Him. When we disobey God we defy His authority and despise His holiness. But when we fail to trust God we doubt His sovereignty and question His goodness." ~ Jerry Bridges

"We give credit to human wisdom when we should give credit to the divine guidance of God being exhibited through childlike people who were “foolish” enough to trust God’s wisdom and His supernatural equipment." ~ Oswald Chambers

"Only the Holy Spirit has the power to make the changes God wants to make in our lives.... We allow Christ to live through us... through the choices we make. We choose to do the right thing in situations and then trust God's Spirit to give us his power, love, faith, and wisdom to do it. Since God's Spirit lives inside of us, these things are always available for asking." ~ Rick Warren

"I make soup and I back bread and I know my supreme need is joy in God and I know I can't experience deep joy in God until I deep trust in God. I shine sinks and polish through to the realization that trusting God is my most urgent need. If I deep trusted God in all the facets of my life, wouldn't that deep heal my anxiety, my self-condemnation, my soul holes? The fear is suffocating, terrorizing, and I want the remedy, and it is trust. Trust is everything. If fear keeps our lives small, does a life that receives all of God in this moment grow large too?" ~ Ann Voskamp

"Faith by its very nature must be tried, and the real trial of faith is not that we find it difficult to trust God, but that God's character has to be cleared in our own minds. Faith in its actual working out has to go through spells of unsyllabled isolation. Never confound the trial of faith with the ordinary discipline of life. Much that we call the trial of faith is the inevitable result of being alive." ~ Oswald Chambers

"What you fear reveals where you trust God the least" ~ Craig Groeschel

"Through personal prayer, through family prayer, by trusting in God with faith, nothing wavering, we can call down to our rescue His mighty power." ~ Thomas S. Monson

"He who hopes in God trusts God, Whom he never sees, to bring him to the possession of things that are beyond imagination." ~ Thomas Merton

"Would you like me to teach you how to trust God? Start with your money." ~ Johnny Hunt

"I am so weak that I can hardly write, I cannot read my Bible, I cannot even pray, I can only lie still in God's arms like a little child, and trust." ~ Hudson Taylor

"I trust in Nature for the stable laws Of beauty and utility. Spring shall plant And Autumn garner to the end of time. I trust in God,-the right shall be the right And other than the wrong, while he endures. I trust in my own soul, that can perceive The outward and the inward,-Nature's good And God's." ~ Robert Browning

"Work hard, trust in God, and keep your bowels open." ~ Oliver Cromwell

"The sad pattern of lack of trust in God has persisted since the Creation." ~ Henry B. Eyring

"I trust men only because I trust God." ~ Mahatma Gandhi

"I'm going to trust God that I'm not going to completely burn out, and that I'll have the energy in me to stay in it. Fortunately, I have really excellent people around me that are helping me." ~ Zachary Levi

"It isn't necessary to trust God when we have full understanding and knowledge of what He is doing on our behalf... Trust is needed in those times when, for whatever reason, we are not hearing from God as clearly as we would like." ~ Joyce Meyer

"There's an antidote to our fears- trust. If we trust God more,we can fear less." ~ Max Lucado

"In order to trust God, we must always view our adverse circumstances through the eyes of faith, not of sense. And just as the faith of salvation comes through hearing the message of the gospel (Romans 10:17), so the faith to trust God in adversity comes through the Word of God alone. It is only in the Scriptures that we find an adequate view of God's relationship to and involvement in our painful circumstances. It is only from the Scriptures, applied to our hearts by the Holy Spirit, that we receive the grace to trust God in adversity." ~ Jerry Bridges

"Faith is not a soft option offered to people who need a crutch to get through the rest of their lives. Faith is the supernatural activity of God whereby He opens blind eyes, unstops deaf ears, and a man or a woman says- “I see it now. I get it now. I am going to trust in God. I am going to trust in Jesus." ~ Alistair Begg

"Mostly I think I've learned to trust God more. I mean, if I start getting worried or freaked, I just try to put it in God's hands. Sometimes I imagine God cradling the globe in his hands, and I tell myself that as long as I'm with God, the Creator of the universe, I can be comfortable and at home anyplace on the planet." ~ Melody Carlson

"Trust in God, always take care of each other." ~ Joseph Smith, Jr.

"From the pioneers we can learn to have faith and trust God; we can learn to be compassionate to others; we can learn that work and industry not only bless us temporally but spiritually; and that happiness is available to us no matter our circumstances." ~ Dieter F. Uchtdorf

"Because I don't think God trusts just anybody with so much heartache. The world has not yet seen what God can do with a man who gives both halves of a broken heart to him. And I don't doubt that a man like that can change the world...or at least a little part of it." ~ Chris Fabry

"It isn't as bad as you sometimes think it is. It all works out. Don't worry. Put your trust in God, and move forward with faith and confidence in the future." ~ Gordon B. Hinckley

"That we ought, once for all, heartily to put our whole trust in GOD, and make a total surrender of ourselves to Him, secure that He would not deceive us." ~ Brother Lawrence

"Trust God where you cannot see Him. Do not try to penetrate the cloud He brings over you; rather look to the bow that is on it. The mystery is God's; the promise is yours." ~ John Ross Macduff

"Trust God for the impossible-miracles are His department. Our job is to do our best, letting the Lord do the rest." ~ David Jeremiah

"Man depends on God for all things: God depends on man for one. Without man's love God does not exist as God, only as creator, and love is the one thing no one, not even God himself, can command. It is a free gift or it is nothing. And it is most itself, most free, when it is offered in spite of suffering, of injustice, and of death . . . The justification of the injustice of the universe is not our blind acceptance of God's inexplicable will, nor our trust in God's love, his dark and incomprehensible love, for us, but our human love, notwithstanding anything, for him." ~ Archibald MacLeish
