Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
It is imperative as believers in Jesus Christ that we trust God even when we don’t necessarily understand everything that is occurring in our lives! How often have you believed for that raise, promotion, new home, good health, or restoration of a relationship and it seemed like God had failed or was slow in fulfilling your desire? I am sure that we all have had the opportunity to succumb to this temptation at some point or another. Nonetheless, today’s verse of Scripture admonishes us to trust God with ALL our heart and not lean on our own understanding. It is so easy to lean on your own understanding when something in your life is not going the way you had anticipated. That is a trick of the enemy. We are to lean on God’s promises expressed through His Word instead of our own understanding. The promises in God’s Word are sure because Heaven and earth will pass away but His words will never pass away (Mark 13:31). Trust God on today!
