What does it mean to trust in God?
1 The people who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion: never shaken, lasting forever. 2 Mountains surround Jerusalem. That’s how the Lord surrounds his people from now until forever from now! 3 The wicked rod won’t remain in the land given to the righteous so that they don’t use their hands to do anything wrong. 4 Lord, do good to people who are good, to people whose hearts are right. 5 But as for those people who turn to their own twisted ways—may the Lord march them off with other evildoers! Peace be on Israel! (CEB)

What does it mean to trust in God? It means trusting in justice for all, rather than in systems or actions that marginalize and dehumanize others. It means returning good for good and over-coming evil with goodness. It even means diverting your own tendencies to put yourself ahead of others with special needs. This is trusting God and bringing peace to the world.
