NIV Devotions for Mom Devotionals

In God We Trust

Verse: Hebrews 6:13–20

Additional Scripture Readings:

Numbers 23:19 

Titus 1:2

A dollar is just a scrap of paper, printed in green ink. What gives it value is the promise printed on it by the government. Because we take the government at its word, we believe the dollar’s promise and the dollar becomes valuable to us. Similarly, the Bible is just a book. Its pages are loaded with words just like any other book. What gives it value are the promises represented by those words and the One who stands behind them.

When someone makes a promise to us, we weigh the trustworthiness of the words by his or her character. When it comes to taking God at his word, we can likewise measure credibility by character. Obviously, we have nothing to worry about there! “In God we trust.”
