Trust in Faith

July 2022

Hezekiah was a righteous king who trusted in the Lord. He also had great faith.

Is trust different from faith?

In a sense, yes. Trust is the demonstration of faith. We grow our faith by exercising it through trust. And when we trust in God, our faith grows. Increased faith leads to greater capacity to trust.

Since his power is infinite, the more trust we have in him, the more we will accomplish.

The exercise of faith reminds me of the early Saints who settled this stake. Their anthem says a lot about trusting in God:

Come, come, ye Saints, no toil nor labor fear

But with joy wend your way

Though hard to you this journey may appear

Grace shall be as your day

Gird up your loins, fresh courage take

Our God will never us forsake

And soon we’ll have this tale to tell

All is well! All is well!

We’ll find the place which God for us prepared

Far away in the West

Where none shall come to hurt or make afraid

There the Saints will be blessed

We’ll make the air with music ring

Shout praises to our God and King

Above the rest these words we’ll tell

All is well! All is well!

Absolute trust in God will turn our fear into faith; our trials into triumphs.
