Trust in the Lord

One of the familiar verses in the Bible is Proverbs 3:5-6: “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” This describes the life of the believer.


When we trust the Lord, we are not trusting ourselves. Too often we rely on our own means or methods, our own goals or dreams, to accomplish the outcome we desire. And if we can’t accomplish the outcome, we get frustrated, angry, or worried. But when we trust the Lord, we leave it all up to Him to work things out in His way and in His time.


A reason why things go off track in our decisions is because we don’t acknowledge the Lord in everything we do. We don’t think about what He wants, but rather we think about what we want, or sometimes what we don’t want. Either way, we lean on our own understanding, and we go off course.


But if we trust in the Lord, with all of our heart, without any wavering or doubting, allowing Him to work without forcing the issue; when we rely upon the teaching of God’s Word, and look to please Him; then He shall direct our paths. He will clearly make His plan for us known.
