He that trusts in his own heart is a fool:
but whoever walks wisely, he shall be delivered.
We’re called to trust God. True servants have a trusting heart. By trusting Him we show that we believe he loves us; that he wants only what is good for us. But so often we put our trust in everything else and wonder why our lives are a mess. We need to lean on Him for everything. Things not going right for you? Ask yourself “am I really trusting God”.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
(Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT)
To develop a trusting attitude you must know God and to do that you need to know what the bible says about him. You need to experience his power in your life. And you need to rely on the Holy Spirit to guide you.
But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. (John 16:13 ESV)
If you struggle to trust him for your daily needs as well as difficult trials remember he wants your trust. He wants to know you believe in His love for you.
“…trusting God has become easy…for today anyway.” (Jubilee Journey, Day 94)
A Prayer for Trust
Father, show me that I can trust you, that you do have my good at heart. Show me where you have come through for me in the past.
