Proverbs 3:5-6 "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."
Trust is total dependence on God. We had and still do have total dependence on God to save us from Hell. Why is it so hard to trust Him in other areas of our lives?
Peace comes with trust. When I trusted God for salvation...an overwhelming peace came over me.
Isaiah 26:3-4 "Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength." These have been two of my favorite verses for a long time. I can tell you from experience that a person with a prayer life...a faithful prayer life...finds it easier to trust Him. A person who doesn't pray worries about everything. Have you found that to be true? I know when my prayer life has been weak I've found myself not trusting God like I should. And I'm sure you've had times when you've been in that state as well.
We all have areas in our life that we don't totally depend on God. Total means complete. I know that all of us can trust God more than we do.
Our flesh is our biggest hindrance in the area of trust for things. our flesh does not want to give control up.
Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the LORD with all thine heart;" All means all. We are to go to God with every need. Then once we do that we need to trust Him with it. The closer we live to God the easier it is to trust Him.
Prayer and holy living is essential to trusting God. When we do these things along with reading our Bible the easier it is to trust God. When we feed the Spirit He will be stronger in our lives. If we feed our flesh we'll not be depending on God and we'll find it hard to trust Him.
So let me ask you...are you trusting totally in the Lord? Are you trusting Him with all your heart?
