The exact phrase, "trust in the Lord," appears only nineteen times in the Bible, but God's Word teaches man to place their trust in Him, from cover to cover!  God does not lie; He keeps His promises (2 Cor. 1:20; Tts. 1:2)!  Here are some examples to encourage us to trust in the Lord:

*  Israel trusted in the Lord, and the Assyrian army perished (2 Kg. 18:22, 30; 19:35)!
*  Sinners who trust in the Lord will be made righteous (Ps. 4:5; 1 Jn. 1:9)!
*  Those who trust in the Lord, hate hypocrisy (Ps. 31:6; Lk. 12:1)!
*  Those who trust in the Lord, do good works (Ps. 37:3; Eph. 2:10)!
*  The testimony of those who trust in the Lord, saves souls (Ps. 40:3; Jn. 17:20)!
*  God is not partial with those who trust in the Lord ("clergy" Ps. 115:10; "sheep" v. 11)!
*  Those who trust the Lord, live forever (Ps. 125:1; Jn. 3:16)!
*  When we trust in the Lord, He guides us (Prov. 3:5-6; Jn. 16:13)!

In addition to the nineteen verses which include the exact phrase, there are twenty-five others which include the word "trust," and "the Lord."  Here are some excellent examples:

Ps. 37:40 - "And the LORD shall help them, and deliver them: He shall deliver them from the wicked, and save them, because they trust in Him."

Isa. 26:4 - "Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength."

Nah. 1:7 - "The LORD is good, a strong hold in the day of trouble; and He knoweth them that trust in Him."

2 Cor. 1:9-10 - "But we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God which raiseth the dead:  Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that He will yet deliver us."

Phil. 2:11 - "...every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord...."
