100% RISK FREE GUARANTEE
Is there really such a thing as a 100% Risk Free Guarantee? What does it mean to trust someone or something so much that it is 100% guaranteed not to fail? And, what does it mean to “trust” someone? Webster’s Dictionary defines trust as: “1(a) assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something (b) one in which confidence is placed”
To trust means to “rely” on someone. And to rely on someone you must have complete confidence in them and their ability to do what you want or need. However, in today’s society, we tend to blindly put our trust in almost anything or anyone, and then we wonder why get hurt. Some people rely completely on their jobs, while others may rely completely on someone else. Then, when we lose our jobs or someone we love hurts us, our hearts are broken and it is difficult to trust someone again. We need to be very careful how we trust and in whom we put our trust. While it is good to trust others, we need to understand that people are not perfect and make mistakes. Jobs and circumstances can change at any moment. We need to understand that in order to truly trust or rely on someone or something other than GOD, it is not risk free.
GOD is the only One we can trust truly risk free. GOD is perfect and never fails. GOD is honest, loyal, faithful and dependable. GOD will always be there fore you and will never leave you turn away from you. GOD will always be there for you in times of trouble. We can trust GOD with our whole heart, with all of our soul. We can trust our own lives and the lives of our children and loved ones in GOD forever and ever. Turn your life over to JESUS, and you will not be disappointed. That is your 100% risk free guarantee.
LORD, JESUS, TODAY I PUT ALL OF MY TRUST IN YOU. I KNOW THAT I CAN TRUST YOU WITH MY HEART, WITH MY SOUL, WITH MY LIFE, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS. PLEASE SAVE ME FROM MY SINS AND FILL ME WITH PEACE, LOVE, AND HAPPINESS THAT ONLY COMES FROM YOU. AMEN.
PSALM 31:1-3 (KJV)
(1) In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.
(2) Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.
(3) For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.
PROVERBS 3:4-6 (KJV)
(4) So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
(5) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
(6) In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
