Bible Term: Trust

Trust, as it is used in the Bible, means to have confidence in, place reliance upon, to reasonably expect, to believe, and to entrust.

We are to trust in God and his love to provide what we need — both in this reality and the next. The Bible warns us not to place trust in our money, job, possessions, ourselves, or others.
