Trust in God (3:159 – 3:160)

God loves those who trust in Him. We make decisions and trust in God and we will be successful even if we made the wrong decision as long as we are not deliberately choosing to sin.

[3:135] If they fall in sin or wrong their souls, they remember GOD and ask forgiveness for their sins – and who forgives the sins except GOD – and they do not persist in sins, knowingly. 

Proverbs 16

  1. The plans of the mind belong to mortals, but the answer of the tongue is from the Lord.
  2. All one’s ways may be pure in one’s own eyes, but the Lord weighs the spirit.
  3. 3. Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.
  4. The Lord has made everything for its purpose, even the wicked for the day of trouble.
  5. All those who are arrogant are an abomination to the Lord; be assured, they will not go unpunished.
  6. By loyalty and faithfulness iniquity is atoned for, and by the fear of the Lord one avoids evil.
  7. When the ways of people please the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.
  8. Better is a little with righteousness than large income with injustice.
  9. The human mind plans the way, but the Lord directs the steps.

In God We Trust” was adopted as the official motto of the United States in 1956 as an alternative or replacement to the unofficial motto of E pluribus unum, which was adopted when the Great Seal of the United States was created and adopted in 1782. Secularists have expressed objections to its use, and have sought to have the religious reference removed from the currency. “In God we trust” first appeared on U.S. coins in 1864 and has appeared on paper currency since 1957. A law passed by the 84th Congress (P.L. 84-140) and approved by the President on July 30, 1956, the President approved a Joint Resolution of the 84th Congress, declaring IN GOD WE TRUST the national motto of the United States. IN GOD WE TRUST was first used on paper money in 1957, when it appeared on the one-dollar silver certificate. The first paper currency bearing the motto entered circulation on October 1, 1957
