It is so good to welcome you into this broadcast of The Encouraging Word featuring Dr. Don Wilton well-known author evangelist and pastor and just a few minutes to be taking it straight to Proverbs chapter 3, beginning in verse five before that he wants me to remind you we are here for you to pray with you and for you during this broadcast or do this job. The number down. Start your cell 866899 word and connect with us 24 hours a day. Happy to listen and talk and pray and encouraging, especially during this time the coronavirus are here for you. 86689996734 email us at Now today's message can we really trust with Dr. Don Wilton. I'm always open your Bibles to the book of problems.

In chapter 3, we rarely trust who do we go to Montana you there a lot of wonderful people and I will you know God uses people I've had some conversations with some incredibly godly physicians this week. People who are in the medical field that are on the cutting edge peoplehood, giving of themselves.

People are sacrificing so much. I've had confidence that conversations with men and women whom God speaks through and I'm listening to. We got the goblins speaking we listening to the opinions of China and South Korea and Italy and Spain. Listening to the World Health Organization. The daily briefings in the White House. But who can we really trust. Who can we really trust. That's a good question is not the good question. Who can we really trust where do we go. God's got something to say about this and my friend. I want you to know is open God's word and I'm setting the table this morning. God is going to speak to us.

This is what the word of God says in Proverbs chapter 3 and verses five and six. You need to read this for yourself. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not leave unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him.

Now watch this and he will direct your paths.

Some of our Bible version say he will make your good clogs striped he will stop the swerve he will straighten out your way. You give you a very clear picture he'll show you the end from the beginning you leapfrogged, you, he'll take away all that fear trust in the Lord. That's what the Bible says put your trust in God. I think it's time for America to show up in God we trust our founding fathers brought it then you see my friends when it comes to trusting God and who we can really trust God did not say this to us as a special announcement just for a virus he's always said that God didn't call a special meeting under unique circumstances and site now listen people, I love you all and I recognize that you're going through a very difficult time just something you need to try. Trust me, you see, God always is, isn't he is the golfer and the Omega, he's the beginning, and he's the end he's the first and velocities. Our eternal God. Someone said to me one time, pasta, wind, and God begin God never begin. He always is.

He's changing. He says put your trust in me, because I always am on the great I am even told Moses when Moses had to go and confront the ugliness of Pharaoh. This pagan man was doing what he did to God's people, he said just go to Pharaoh and tell them I am St. you I am Moses said yes I am that spelled Yahweh. Yahweh. It has no vowels. You cannot pronounce it on the unpronounceable one.

I'm old mighty magnificent always am, because I always ease.

I never have not been you can trust me, trust the Lord. In God we trust our founding fathers told us what to do. Long before the coronavirus arrived and I'm going to submit to you today my friends as believers in our church and I live without children with the government as we pray for the nation as we pray for the people in the trust, understand this blog, how he tells us three ways how we trust to give the movie back with the rest of today's message.

Now back today's message. Can we really trust with Dr. Don Wilton. This tells us three ways how we trust.

I want to encourage you to write these down and then I'm going to unpack something here that's very very helpful. I promise you get ready with your payment type it ready with that notepad. Take notes and as you take notes.

Why don't you, perhaps even think in terms of your daily devotional with your sons and daughters with your small children have a habit start something new. If you haven't done this. Do it. God maybe is giving you an opportunity to have a family tabernacle.

Maybe every morning at breakfast, get out the Bible reread this write down some of these points over them. In addition to all the other wonderful resources that you got made available to you. This is what God sees when he sees trusting me. He tells us how to do this. I'm going to be very simple. Someone he tells us to trust him totally trust the Lord because look what he says right there in verse five. Trust the Lord with all your heart, all your soul, heart, trusting, totally you know many of you heard my some of my testimony how I came out of the desert's of Africa on the first morning I was back when off to church. The only reason I went to church and I'm just confessing to all of you back there in my youth and off to being gone for quite a long time was because I knew the best looking girls went to church. I'm telling you that I'm just admitting it and I set way up in the balcony.

I when I look at my church today. There is nobody in our church accepting for a few people. I look up there's nobody there but I see them I see you that day I went to church set up in the balcony look down and there she was. She was on the second row use.

I how did you know it was the second row. Trust me on you. I've never forgotten. All I could see was the back of her, but you know the day that I went and introduced myself didn't get much response from her and I remind her about that for a lot, but you know she's been my wife and the love of my life for over 44 years now and I love her dearly, but I meant to tell you what happened that day I gave my heart to her. It got into my heart. You will not know what it means to give your heart and then she gave me her heart. We gave our hearts to one another.

When you give your heart it means you.

You just totally it means to be completely given over it means to be in LA given it means to be whole heartedly engaged in the one you've given your heart.

That's what it means that fantastic site.

How do I do that when you trust him with your whole heart just tell him that it begins when you give your heart to Jesus.

That's the starting point. Do you know the Lord Jesus, I'm going to invite you right now to give your heart to Jesus. That's where it starts because if you don't give your heart to Jesus and confess your sin and trust them as your Savior and your Lord. Yes, you might have a deep affection for him. You might respect God, you might tolerate him. You might use him from time to time.

But when you give your heart to him. It already does. He comes all of him back into your heart. That's why want you to give your life to Christ right there where you all you can pray a prayer like this, Lord Jesus, I know that you are God and I know that you love me and I believe that you died for me. I confess my sin to you, and I receive you into my heart. I do you you my heart and when you do that, that's the starting point.

There goes that the initial total trust and capitulation. That's what he said you want me to be involved with you I'm not going to make this announcement that's going to suit a time or an issue in your community. This is always been the case, follow me. He says you give your heart to me completely entirely. Alright, so there's number 126). The Bible, he says trust in the Lord. In God we trust means totally number two trusting confidently not only totally but trusting confidently the beautiful statement that he says do not lean on your own understanding that they lean is up is a it's actually a very beautiful description here what God is saying here is he saying don't mean on any other understanding, to the point at which you have conviction that that is the word that you can take to your heart. Listen, by all means ascertain God gives to us a spirit of discernment.

God uses us in every believer, because we are fooled by the spirit of God. God dwells in us richly by his spirit and that spirit of discernment will help us to be able to not lean on our own understanding but to trust God confidently God has the final say it means to trust him. Certainly, to trust him assuredly to the two trusting positively. That's what it means what he says to us, he says trust in the Lord. In God you trust in God I trust if someone was to come to you right now on site you what you think of this.

This single greatest on so that I can give to your viewer decide to me right now Dr. Wilton. What do you think about the coronavirus the greatest on so I can give right now is our trust God.

Yes, I'm going to give you my opinion.

I'm going to I'm going to concert my opinion.

I'm going to consider all the wonderful work man from medical personnel to people who understand these things the work that's going on.

The incredible genius of the human mind.

I don't I don't lay any of that aside, and God speaks to people. That's how he does.

That's the way he brings these things to us, but I'm not going to lean on my own understanding.

I'm not going to depend on human understanding. I'm not going to put everything that I've got on what we think might be or might not be I'm going to put it all on God. Amen.

Can you feel that while you know II believe that of all the many things we can say about the reason why these things. I don't know all the reasons but I think God's trying to get our attention, don't you.

I think God's trying to get our attention about himself and at the centerpiece on that that attention ladies trying to get concerning himself has to do with what we believe to be true about God, the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ friends listen to me. God has become just a byword in our communities. He's become gobbled up in everyone's God, who is God, he's become just whatever anybody thinks he might be everybody's got an opinion God has given us very clearly what we need to know about him and he says trust in me, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob trusting me number one totally trusting me confidently and number three trust him trustingly. Now that a real form of the word trust is a is a very interesting to trust God trustingly.

This is what he sees to us here. He says in all your ways acknowledge him, I'm going to trust God, you're not going to trust God in a time like this because it's in God we trust every other trusting totally and confidently and trustingly in all ways we go to acknowledge him.

Not in some ways it means when we trusting trustingly we trusting fully we trust him confidently. We trust him expectantly.

You can expect God to deliver. So what's this now, folks, this is going to be very important for us today as we worship the Lord Jesus, the Bible say is when we trust in the Lord totally confidently and trustingly we put everything on God by faith means we don't necessarily understand and we don't necessarily have all the nuances and we don't necessarily get it. But when we trusting he will make up all destroyed. He will direct us. He will direct you. He will direct. He will show you he will point so yes the question how does God. How does the Lord direct us. How will the Lord direct your house, how he knew this. I'm going to give you just five ways to get you ready 12345 and I'm going to give you a Scripture verse next to each one. When I do this right that Scripture verse down is, you can use that as a devotional right there in your own home. You can use that. Take one of these may be for the next five days if you like use that as your family devotion, in addition to other things that you might have those wonderful resources that God is given to us through devotionals and so many different means you have so many things made available to you, even through your own church and I encourage to do that how the Lord will direct you number one this is what he does when he makes up all strike. He will provide for you.

Philippians 419.

My God shall supply all our need according to his riches in glory you provide for you I can guarantee that because I trust God, who cannot really trust.

Trust God, he will provide for you.

Number two.

He will quiet you.

I love this listen to Zephaniah chapter 3 and verse 17 the Bible says he will quiet you by his love you and I have a picture of a terrible storm coming through any community and I have a picture of a child lying in the child's bedroom that little girl that little boy becomes terrified and runs to mommy and daddy's bedroom jumps into that great now doesn't want to be on the edge of the bottom or on the side wants to be right smack in the middle and in that incredible thing when that little one jumps in gets up through those sheets and blankets gets into the middle between mommy and daddy and is just smothered by the love of her parents and when she smothered by the love of her parents. They love quiets her expert God sees when you trust him to beautiful picture will provide for you.

He will quiet you, he will guide you. Number three John chapter 16 verse 13. So many passages about what God does for us by. He spurred he guides us.

You know that would God. He guides us into truth into that which is absolute and that's what God will do for you when you trust him, he will guide you. Number four. He will protect you now love this. He will protect you. Listen to what the psalmist said in Psalm 32 and verse seven. You are a hiding place for me.

You preserve me and protect me from trouble you surround me with shouts of deliverance. The psalmist goes on and he talks about the fact that God sings to us that fantastic what it wanted statement of worship this morning before I got up to preach. We were singing we were hearing, you know, as I was sitting here singing along. It's as though I was hearing God singing to me. You know, God sings to us, and what he does when he does that he provides a hiding place for us. He he protects us. He pulls us into himself and he holds us in the palm of his hand and we just give you these again quickly. This is very important. Folks, so trusting God trusted trusted in God we trust. Put everything on God have total faith and trust in him. He's the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Trusting, trusting with everything your whole heart and what will he do you make your paths straight.

He will direct your ways. You show you give nonsense. He's at the end before the beginning and how does he do that well. He'll provide for you. He will quiet you he will guide you.

He will protect you and here's one more. He will answer you and just get this evil on scene one John chapter 5 I want you to write this down one John chapter 5 verses 14 and 15 powerful verse I've written down your mentor read it to you and this is the confidence that we have toward him that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us and if we know that he hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests that we have a hold of him.

Think about that God wants is me just fantastic going on since you so what questions of you got right now you please send them in: number, text, sending those emails anything. Let's get along side a rerun. We're hoping we're getting alongside people ministry but a bubble. Put your trust in God. He's the one he's the one. So what are we saying today when we trust God with trusting the one that we really can't trust we can thank God for all the incredible wisdom, all while our teachers and parents out doctors people in government listen we can trust we can listen we can take. We can think all of this we are in this together, but it's in God we trust God is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we could ask or even think plastic. This is who God is. That is who God is. Her doctor will come from the pulpit has been preaching insurance God's word right now before we get away. I pray you'd allow him to just speak to you from his heart as he comes in the studio these last few moments.

The greatest thing I ever did was give my heart to Jesus. I want to invite you to give your life to Christ today.

Pray this prayer with me today. Dear God, thank you for the Lord Jesus Christ, God's son, who came to this earth to die on the cross for me today. I put my faith and my trust in you. I confess my sin to you and ask you to come into my life by faith in Jesus name. If you prayed that prayer.
