Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
God guides and provides for our lives. Our loving Father knows the plans He has for our days. He skillfully prepares us for what’s to come and finds the way to teach us how it feels to TRUST.
TRUST is defined as a “firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something”. Often, we forget TRUST welcomes peace. It readies the heart for perseverance and provides the way to discover amazing grace. It allows us to remember we don’t have to try and figure out everything on our own.
If every day was perfect, we would move ahead with ease and never know how it feels to worry. But, life doesn’t work that way. We face unexpected circumstances as we journey ahead and need to be reminded to faithfully TRUST. God will lead us through the happenings of our days. He will draw us close to His presence of peace, when we have recognized why we need Him.
God knows the plans He has for His children. If we TRUST in Him, He will provide everything we need to handle our days. He will lead us on a path of purpose and demonstrate the power of His love. He will remind us why strength will come, if we choose to prepare our hearts and gratefully receive Him.
Dear God, Thank you for this day. Prepare us to move ahead, as we open our hearts to the guiding of Your will and faithfully learn how it feels to totally TRUST in You. Amen
