    hallelujah,trusting in the Lord is full expression of your faith in Him.Now trusting in the Lord carries both a blessing and a reward for the word of God says but it is difficult to please the Lord without faith,for those who come to Him should believe that He is and a rewarder to all those who dilligently seek Him.Trust in the Lord and He will strengthen you.bless you and reward you.GLORY TO JESUS
