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.
Trust has an ugly truth...it's hard to do! Trust requires us to believe that someone else has our best interest at heart. And many times, you have to believe that to the point of taking that person at their word. The reality is, this doesn’t always turn out the way we’d hoped. And yes, people that you trust can let you down.
We are human, and that means we don’t always get it right. But there is a trust that is greater than the trust that we place in one another. A trust that God our father in heaven, loved us enough to give, and that Jesus the Son of God, sacrificed His own life to help us keep. When you trust God, you are saying, “I believe you have the best in mind for me so I will let you take the lead, even if I cannot see how what you are doing is going to work…” Sound familiar?? We have all been there–trusting in God can feel like your walking with a blindfold on with no one leading the way. But remember this, seeing isn’t everything. Sometimes, even when our eyes are wide open we can still bump into a wall.
We trust the Lord, not because we can see or understand all that He does, but because we believe in what He knows. If you believe without doubt, that He created and fashioned all of our days, then you have to trust that He’s already ahead of you at the next step and wouldn’t steer you the wrong way. The choice to trust is always yours, but trusting in the Lord is a worthy risk.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Jeremiah 29:11
