(Proverbs 22:19 KJV) That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee.
In a better time in our history, congress decided to print “In God We Trust” on our money. It was all the way back in 1956. It seems like ancient history now. Those of us who notice probably think it has always been there but it was a statement the country wanted to make. Would we do it again? It is hard to believe it could happen now.
If you look at the context, the reason that Israel was able to trust in God was because they had taken the wisdom of God and internalized it. It would be impossible to trust God if we don’t know what He has had to say to us. It would be like buying tires without knowing the size of your rims. You might get lucky but don’t count on it.
So? Know the promises. Know the Promiser. They go together.
