Every truth demands two decisions from you.
 
First, every truth compels you to decide if the truth is true for all human beings.
 
Second, every truth requires you to determine if the truth is true for you.
 
 

There are many things which exist and dramatically influence your life ― whether or not you believe them to be true.
 
Whether or not you believe gravity exists, it exists.
 
Most of the time, gravity holds you firmly to the ground.
 
Every time you jump, gravity allows for a brief good-bye and then quickly welcomes you back to the ground.
 
If you are slender and don’t weigh very much, your landing doesn’t impact anyone but you.
 
If you are really fat, however, your landing creates a loud “thud” which shakes the ground and terrifies earthworms, insects, and small animals.
 
Though these small creatures are not aware that gravity exists, they are certain you exist!
 
Gravity exists whether or not you believe that it exists. Whether you believe or don’t believe, though, gravity doesn’t care. It doesn’t matter to gravity how you feel about it.




In contrast, God wants you to realize that He exists. It matters very much to Him how you feel about Him. He names Himself your Father, and from the foundations of the world He chose you and adopted you into relationship with Himself.
 
He wants you to know the Truth of His nature and character.
 
Still more, He wants you to know Him for Who He is.
 
 
 
Once you decide that Truth is true for mankind, and is true for you, the three most excellent responses to Truth are belief, faith, and trust.
 
You’ll notice that these concepts are so similar that the definitions use the same words.
 
Let’s discuss their differences, and then return to the topic of Truth by learning what God, Jesus, and fathers of the faith said about Truth.
 

 
“Belief” is “trust or confidence, conviction, or expectation that certain things are true.”
 
“Faith” is stronger than belief because it shines with two key adjectives — the words “unquestioning” [without question] and “complete.”
 
“Faith” is “unquestioning belief; complete trust, confidence, loyalty.”
 
Faith describes a deeper commitment than belief.
 
Here’s a verse which, in English, ties hope, belief, faith, and trust together:
 
Hebrews 11:1-3
    1 Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].
    2 For by [faith—trust and holy fervor born of faith] the men of old had divine testimony borne to them and obtained a good report.
    3 By faith we understand that the worlds [during the successive ages] were framed (fashioned, put in order, and equipped for their intended purpose) by the word of God, so that what we see was not made out of things which are visible.

 
Though faith is unquestioning, it shines brightest when combined with other virtues. Martin Luther counseled: “Faith, like light, should always be simple and unbending; while love, like warmth, should beam forth on every side, and bend to every necessity of our brethren.”
 
 

“Trust” exists in a category all its own.
 
One philosopher said, “If life is a comedy to him who thinks; and a tragedy to him who feels; it is a victory to him who believes.”
 
If the philosopher is right, then to him who trusts ― in God ― life is an everlasting triumph.
 
“Trust” is “firm belief in the honesty or reliability of another; confident expectation or hope; to believe, to hope, to expect.”
 
Did you notice that trust is “firm belief … in another.” Trust is tied, then, with relationship.
 
This website seeks to help you believe that God wants relationship with you — and not a distant relationship where all you do is learn facts about Him.
 
God wants you to realize that He names Himself your Father. He wants you to consider yourself as His child.
 
When you are in relationship with God as your Father, you can trust that He oversees all aspects of your life according to His perfect wisdom, timing, and will.
 
A wise Believer said, ““Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.”
 
Two verses which encourage you to trust the absolute, limitless God rather than relying on your own limited abilities are:
 
Psalm 37:5
    5 Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass.
 
Proverbs 16:3
    3 Roll your works upon the Lord [commit and trust them wholly to Him; He will cause your thoughts to become agreeable to His will, and] so shall your plans be established and succeed.
 

Can you trust gravity to keep you firmly on the ground? Not always.
 
Can you trust God to love you as His child? Always.
 
 
 
Spend a moment thinking about the differences in belief, faith, and trust.
 
Belief and faith are tied to what we know about something. You can believe in God and have faith in God based on what you know about Him.
 
On the other hand, trust is belief in, or faith in, another. As just mentioned, trust comes from relationship. The longer you know the heart of the person, the more you know his character, his virtue, and his integrity, and the more you know who he is deep inside his heart, the easier it is for you to trust him.
 
The longer you investigate God as God, the more you will believe in Him.
 
The longer you know God as Father, the more you will trust Him.
 
 

In John 8:32, Jesus said:
 
              And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.



If you are willing to believe that God’s Word, the Bible, is Truth, the following will help define the freedoms you will enjoy.
 
If you determine to trust God as your Father, you will increasingly experience:
 

  • Freedom from fear, worry about provision of your family’s basic human physical  needs for food, water, home, health, and income
 
  • Freedom from anxiety, doubt, and concern about your relational needs for love, belonging, respect, and relational security
 
  • Freedom from fear of physical, relational, or financial harm
 
  • Freedom from fear of abandonment or rejection
 
  • Freedom from habits, addictions or compulsions driven by these fears
 
  • Freedom from indecisiveness and insecurity based in fear; freedom from relational instability
 
  • Freedom from striving to obtain others’ appreciation, favor, applause, recognition, and gratitude
 
  • Freedom from striving to gather possessions, power, prestige, or others’ praise
 
  • Freedom into vibrant life on earth, and later, eternal life
 
  • Freedom into the thrill of becoming who you were created to be and of doing what you were destined to do; freedom to rise from glory to glory
 
  • Freedom to feel acceptance without having to “perform”
 
  • Freedom to rest in relationship with Him
 
  • Freedom to rest and “be.”
 
God your Father is absolutely, perfectly, completely able to deliver you into all these freedoms, and these are His desire for you.
 
Since He has given you free will, however, He will only deliver you as completely as you allow.
 
What inspires you to allow God your Father to work in your life? Your trust.


 
God’s Word proves that God is worthy of your trust ― He is trustworthy.
 
Throughout the Bible, God's virtue of faithfulness is woven together with His virtue of truth. Whether the Bible speaks of God the Father, His Spirit, or Jesus, the Bible rarely mentions one attribute without the other. Here are three examples from the Book of Revelation, the last book of the Bible:
 
Revelation 3:14
    14 And to the angel (messenger) of the assembly (church) in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the trusty and faithful and true Witness, the Origin and Beginning and Author of God’s creation:
 
Revelation 19:11
    11 After that I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse [appeared]! The One Who was riding it is called Faithful (Trustworthy, Loyal, Incorruptible, Steady) and True, and He passes judgment and wages war in righteousness (holiness, justice, and uprightness).
 
Revelation 21:5
    5 And He Who is seated on the throne said, See! I make all things new. Also He said, Record this, for these sayings are faithful (accurate, incorruptible, and trustworthy) and true (genuine).
 

God:
 
1 Timothy 2:4
    4 Who wishes all men to be saved and [increasingly] to perceive and recognize and discern and know precisely and correctly the [divine] Truth.




Father God sent Jesus, Who is the perfect representation of His nature and character.
 
Colossians 1:15 explains: “Now He [Jesus] is the exact likeness of the unseen God [the visible representation of the invisible] … .”
 
Hebrews 1:3 declares: “He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God's] nature … .”
 
Father God and Jesus sent Holy Spirit, Who not only is the perfect representation of His nature and character but Who is called the Spirit of Truth.
 
Read what Jesus, Who cannot lie, told us about Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth:
 
John 15:26
    26But when the Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Advocate, Intercessor, Strengthener, Standby) comes, Whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth Who comes (proceeds) from the Father, He [Himself] will testify regarding Me.
 
John 16:13-15
    13But when He, the Spirit of Truth (the Truth-giving Spirit) comes, He will guide you into all the Truth (the whole, full Truth). For He will not speak His own message [on His own authority]; but He will tell whatever He hears [from the Father; He will give the message that has been given to Him], and He will announce and declare to you the things that are to come [that will happen in the future].
    14He will honor and glorify Me, because He will take of (receive, draw upon) what is Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.
    15Everything that the Father has is Mine. That is what I meant when I said that He [the Spirit] will take the things that are Mine and will reveal (declare, disclose, transmit) it to you.
 
1 John 4:1-19
    1Beloved, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to discover whether they proceed from God; for many false prophets have gone forth into the world.
    2By this you may know (perceive and recognize) the Spirit of God: every spirit which acknowledges and confesses [the fact] that Jesus Christ (the Messiah) [actually] has become man and has come in the flesh is of God [has God for its source];
    3And every spirit which does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh [but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him] is not of God [does not proceed from Him]. This [nonconfession] is the [spirit] of the antichrist, [of] which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world.
    4Little children, you are of God [you belong to Him] and have [already] defeated and overcome them [the agents of the antichrist], because He Who lives in you is greater (mightier) than he who is in the world.
    5They proceed from the world and are of the world; therefore it is out of the world [its whole economy morally considered] that they speak, and the world listens (pays attention) to them.
    6We are [children] of God. Whoever is learning to know God [progressively to perceive, recognize, and understand God by observation and experience, and to get an ever-clearer knowledge of Him] listens to us; and he who is not of God does not listen or pay attention to us. By this we know (recognize) the Spirit of Truth and the spirit of error.
    7Beloved, let us love one another, for love is (springs) from God; and he who loves [his fellowmen] is begotten (born) of God and is coming [progressively] to know and understand God [to perceive and recognize and get a better and clearer knowledge of Him].
    8He who does not love has not become acquainted with God [does not and never did know Him], for God is love.
    9In this the love of God was made manifest (displayed) where we are concerned: in that God sent His Son, the only begotten or unique [Son], into the world so that we might live through Him.
    10In this is love: not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins.
    11Beloved, if God loved us so [very much], we also ought to love one another.
    12No man has at any time [yet] seen God. But if we love one another, God abides (lives and remains) in us and His love (that love which is essentially His) is brought to completion (to its full maturity, runs its full course, is perfected) in us!
    13By this we come to know (perceive, recognize, and understand) that we abide (live and remain) in Him and He in us: because He has given (imparted) to us of His [Holy] Spirit.
    14And [besides] we ourselves have seen (have deliberately and steadfastly contemplated) and bear witness that the Father has sent the Son [as the] Savior of the world.
    15Anyone who confesses (acknowledges, owns) that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides (lives, makes His home) in him and he [abides, lives, makes his home] in God.
    16And we know (understand, recognize, are conscious of, by observation and by experience) and believe (adhere to and put faith in and rely on) the love God cherishes for us. God is love, and he who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in God, and God dwells and continues in him.
    17In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.
    18There is no fear in love [dread does not exist], but full-grown (complete, perfect) love turns fear out of doors and expels every trace of terror! For fear brings with it the thought of punishment, and [so] he who is afraid has not reached the full maturity of love [is not yet grown into love's complete perfection].
    19We love Him, because He first loved us.
