"How Do I Trust"
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
What a wonderful promise we have in this text. It promises that if we trust in the Lord while suspending our own understanding and resisting the temptation to go our own way then He will be our guide. We can experience times in which we must honestly pause after the first phrase of verse five, “Trust in the LORD with all your heart”. We should not consider this a given. It’s not automatic especially when we read the “…with all your heart” part. What does it mean and what does it look like to trust the Lord with all your heart? Many need to spend more time learning how to trust the Lord before we can move on to the benefits of that trust. Grace is required in this quest and God will abundantly provide this grace of trust if we seek Him.
- Gracious Father, I confess that I struggle to trust You with all my heart. I know You are worthy, faithful, and loving and there is no good reason I have for not trusting in You completely. Yet I struggle. Help me to learn greater trust.
