Seeking particular scripture references

Hey, fellow Christians (and fellow readers), I need some help with a bit of research.

For my next Lenten post, I need some examples of scripture passages talking about trusting the in LORD. Specifically, I'm looking for admonitions to trust in the Lord rather than in men/armies/horses/strength, or to trust only in the Lord (with implications of not trusting anyone or anything else, or that all is fallible except the Lord).

Hebrew scriptures AND New Testement references would be welcome.

For some reason I'm having a hard time finding these. And depending on how much I find, that will slant my post, because if there's not as many as I think, then the idea I'm discussing takes on a new light in terms of the way I've heard it taught in various denominations.

Help? :)
