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.
These well-known verses speak volumes about our relationship with God. Trusting the Lord is the key to life. Our God is utterly dependable, and His character shows that He cannot lie. His wisdom is so great that He cannot err, His motives so pure they cannot be questioned, and His love so glorious that He can never be unkind. So trust Him and grow in that trust, and you will find His best!
Once that is established, the rest of our verses are easy: I rely on His understanding and not my own, acknowledge His will in my circumstances, and look to His hand to direct my paths. But it all starts with trusting Him with all your heart!
Resting in His trustworthiness today,
Pastor Jack Abeelen
