Chapter 3: Where Is Your Trust?
Today I want to look at something that I think most people struggle with, including myself. That is trusting in the Lord with all thine heart.
If you have been saved that means you have put your faith in trust in Jesus Christ to save you. You aren’t relying on church, baptism, or good works. You know that nothing else can save you except trusting in Christ. It amazes me how much trust we put in Christ to save us but than we have a hard time trusting in Him for answers to prayer, to supply our needs and more.
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.” Proverbs 3:5
Solomon was telling his son here that he needed to trust the Lord with all his heart. He told his son that not to trust in his own understanding, his own wisdom. In the next verse we see the reward that Solomon told his son there would be for trusting in the Lord and that is that the Lord would direct his paths.
In the Christian life, we rely to much on our own strength and power to accomplish things. I am guilty just as much as the next person. The Lord doesn’t care how much we can do to help Him, He wants us to trust that He can do it all.
If we continue to trust in ourselves, we will fail. If we continue to rely on what we can do, we will fail. We are human, we will mess up, we will fall, we will end up in the wrong place if we trust ourselves.
So today, where is your trust? Are you trusting in the Lord that He will lead and guide you the way you need to go. Are you trusting in the Lord that He will take care of you? Just like you have to choose which path you take in life, you have to choose who you will trust in to guide your life. Are you going to trust in yourself where your chances of succeeding are slim or are you going to trust in the Lord knowing He will lead and guide you in the way you should go?
Ask yourself, Where is my trust?
