Trust in the Lord

Solomon wrote divinely-given advice to his son in the book Proverbs, advice that well serves anyone, of any age. Here is some of his counsel: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Pro. 3:5-6).

Trusting in the Lord is living by faith, the act that pleases God. How do you do that? First, trust “with all thine heart,” with full devotion, full commitment to doing what He says. If you are double-minded, you are not trusting the Lord. Second, don’t depend on “thine own understanding.” We all see things a certain way, but that way isn’t necessarily correct. Double check your thinking against the Bible, and choose its words to be your thoughts. Third, look to God “in all thy ways.” Consult Him first. Ask yourself if your thoughts or actions align with God’s Word. Ask yourself if you are doing the Lord’s will in a certain matter. Fourth, if you do these things, you will find that “He shall direct thy paths.” Not only will the Lord guide your steps, but He will also direct the path you take those steps on. Then you know that you are doing God’s will. Then you know that you are pleasing the Lord. You are living by faith.
