Like I Trust You: Trusting in God

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths – Proverbs 3:5-6 NKJV

I love revisiting the definition of words. Trust is the firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. If that is the case shouldn’t we find it easiest to trust God above anyone or anything else? This scripture suggests that the thing that hinders us the most from trusting in God is our own understanding.

Leaning to our own understanding can cause us to worry, doubt, move to fast, or not move forward at all. But if we live our lives like we trust God then He will direct our path. Sometimes we need to be still like we trust Him. Other times we need to move forward in boldness and got for it like we trust Him. Then there are times where we need to let go like we trust Him. What form of trust is God asking from you today? It can be one or a combination of all three in different aspects of our lives. So trust God like you know He is reliable, able, truthful, all powerful, and faithful to come through.
