September 8, 2013 : TRUST - THE KEY TO SUCCESSFUL LIVING

Dr.  Burnie R.  Burnside

 

Proverbs 3:1-10

 

In Proverbs 3:1-10, there are some marvelous words of wisdom for us on our relationship with God.  This morning I want to talk to you about what I consider to be the key to successful Christian living.  What happens when our whole relationship is based on obedience and trust?

 

Top two questions Christians ask:

1. “How can I know God’s will?”

2. “How can I be a success for God, others, and myself?”

 

Trust is the most important factor in....

Knowing God and His will for my life.

Growing His Kingdom and myself as a steward.

 

OBSERVATIONS ON PROVERBS 3:1-10:

The commands are all-inclusive.

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight”
(vv. 5-6)

The commands precede a promise.

The promises are conditional.

 

STEWARDSHIP AXIOMS:

God is trustworthy.

God has entrusted the possessions, opportunities, talents, and time that we now experience.

We are trustees of everything God has given us.

 

TRUSTWORTHY THOUGHTS ABOUT GOD:

God’s Care is Constant.

(Heb 13:5-6)  "...God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." {6} So we say with confidence,

"The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?""

God’s Gifts are Generous.

 

DEVELOPING OUR TRUST...

Trusting in Adversity. God wants us to learn to trust Him even in the areas where we don’t understand.

Trusting in Plenty.  We run to God fast when we have problems, but we kind of ignore God when we’re being blessed.

Trusting God as our Source.

 

 (Prov 18:10-11)  "The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe.

{11} The wealth of the rich is their fortified city; they imagine it an unscalable wall."

 

“You Can Trust Him”
