The Meaning of Trusting and Believing in God

Bible Verses

Acts 7:2-3 ...The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was in Mesopotamia... And said to him, "Come out from your land and from your relatives, and come into the land which I will show you." Rom 4:3 For what does the Scripture say? "And Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him as righteousness."

The called race becomes the believing race. Abraham was first a called one, then a believing one. He had abandoned everything and had no way to go on except to trust in God. He trusted in God because he did not know where he was going. God had only told him to leave his country, his kindred, and his father's house. He did not tell Abraham where he was going, forcing him to trust in God. Abraham could say, "I simply trust in God. I go wherever He leads me." If we study the history of Abraham, we will learn that his life was a trusting life, a believing life. God did not expect Abraham to do anything. God seemed to tell him, "Abraham, you have been called by Me. Don't do anything. I'll do everything for you. Just stay with Me. When I move, you move. You must go wherever I go. Don't do anything for yourself or by yourself." This is what it means to trust in God. I believe in Him and I believe in all that He has accomplished for me. I believe in what He can do for me and in what He shall do for me. I put my full trust in Him. This is the testimony of the called and believing race. As children of Abraham, the believing father, we are a believing people (Gal. 3:7-9).
