Read Proverbs 3:1-12
What does it mean to trust in the Lord with all your heart? So often, I am quick to say that I trust the Lord for my life, but in reality, I am living day by day trusting in myself. Trusting in the Lord means that instead of relying on my own performance or good works, I put my deepest trust completely in the Lord’s “steadfast love and faithfulness” -- on His unconditional and undeserved grace and love poured out on us through Jesus’ finished work on the Cross. It means that I believe that God’s Word is true, even when it goes against MY own thinking and understanding. It means even when the Lord allows difficulty and suffering in my life, I recognize that He is working through those circumstances, because He loves me as His own precious child.
Trust goes hand in hand with obedience and surrender. When we fully surrender, rely on God’s grace and love and faithfulness, and walk in obedience to His Word, He promises to make our paths straight! What joy and peace come when we stop trying to walk in our own wisdom and understanding and instead fully depend on the Lord, our good and loving Father. When we humbly trust in the Lord and not in ourselves, God promises that we will “find favor and good success” and that it will be “healing to our flesh and refreshment to our bones.” God has never failed us and never will, and we will never regret putting our whole heart’s trust in our Lord and Savior!
Lord, help us to trust in You with our whole hearts! Help us to stop relying on ourselves, but instead humbly acknowledge and depend on You and You alone, our faithful God.
