In an earlier version of the New Living Translation for verse 6 it used the words; ‘confidence dependence’. I really like it said that way. For me, with those words, it is strong in what it says. I first have the confidence in who God is in my life, and then I can totally depend on Him.
The book of Hosea ends with these words that are so true as well; “ A wise person will know these things, and an understanding person will take them to heart. The Lord’s ways are right. Good people live by following them, but those who turn against God die because of them”. (Hosea 14:9 NCV)
Father, I truly today, and always, trust You as my God. I know that Your ways are right, and are what give me life. Thank You for Your love for me. AMEN
The teachings of the Lord are perfect; they give new strength. Respect for the Lord is good; it will last forever. Psalm 19
5 It was the Lord God All-Powerful; the Lord is his great name. 6 You must return to your God; love him, do what is just, and always trust in him as your God. (Hosea 12:5-6 NCV)
5 the Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, the Lord is his name! 6 So now, come back to your God. Act with love and justice, and always depend on him. (Hosea 12:5-6 NLT)
