Psalm 49:6. From a Christian perspective, the definition of trust means trusting God and not other things. Many people put their trust in wealth and the promises of wealth over God. Most people gamble and play the lottery because there is a promise of wealth if they win. By their actions, they have more hope on winning the lottery than hope in God that He will come through for them.
Proverbs 3:5. God's plan is for us to trust completely in Him for all of our needs. This trust is the essence of having faith in God. He desires for us to continually acknowledge Him and stay in close fellowship in Him. When we go against His plan and trust solely in our own understanding (be self-centered), God considers our self-centered actions wicked.
