“Put your trust in the LORD and go ahead.  
Worry gets you no place.”
– Roy Acuff

“Never be afraid to trust an unknown future to a known God.” – Corrie Ten Boom. The times seem uncertain now, but no more disconcerting than those that Corrie Ten Boom and her family faced while assisting Jewish families in the Netherlands to escape the Nazi Holocaust during World War II. The devout Christians called their home The Hiding Place,” and saved the lives of 800 Jews. Eventually, her family was arrested and imprisoned in Ravensbruck concentration camp. Despite the bleakness of their plight, Corrie and her sister Betsie held worship services with a smuggled-in Bible. Upon her death, Betsie exclaimed, “There is no pit so deep that He is not deeper still.” In times like these, perspective is everything. The Ten Boom family drew from a well full of trust. King David sang in his distress, “You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
  TR
TRUST is a firm belief in 

the reliability, truth, ability or strength of someone or

something; it is allowing someone to look after or commit something or someone of importance or value to safekeeping. You are important to God and He cares for you. Isaiah proclaimed, “Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH is my strength and my song; he also is become my salvation.” (Isaiah 12:2) That is a strong declaration. I love how these Scriptures pair trust with a song. Christ-followers can lead the way in these times by preaching the Good News. “14Because God’s children are human beings made of flesh and blood-the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. 15Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.” (Hebrews 2:14-15) The Ten Booms were not afraid of death. 
Paul said, in the last days perilous times would come. (2 Tim. 3:1) So we pray Psalm 91:3-7 over ourselves and our loved ones, “For He will rescue you from every trap and protect you from deadly disease. Do not be afraid of the terrors of the night, nor the arrows that fly by day. He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection. Do not dread the disease that stalks in the darkness, nor the disaster that strikes at midday. Though a thousand fall at your side, though ten thousand are dying around you, these evils will not touch you.” The One who determines when we are born and when we’ll die is God. If it’s our time, we trust Him to make that appointment. In truth, for a Christ-follower, “to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Phil1:21) Because we know where and to Whom we’re going we can say like David, “I TRUST in You LORD, You are My God, my times are in your hands.” (Psa. 31:14-15)
