Trusting in the Lord!
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6
If the future feels uncertain right now, and worry is occupying your heart and your mind, remember this: God is already in all of our tomorrows. He knows our way, and He has a plan! And we can be assured it's always the best one for us. He never asks us to figure it all out on our own. He just asks us to trust Him, to recognize His leadership and Sovereignty in our lives. And He promises to make our pathways straight.
Trust (be confident in, be bold, be secure) in the Lord with all your heart (seat of emotions, inclinations, mind, soul), and do not lean (trust, depend) on your own understanding (discernment). In all your ways acknowledge Him (know, recognize), and He will make your paths straight (pleasing, right, smooth)." Friends, this is the foundational life verse for every uncertainty we will ever face in our lives!
We may not always see what's ahead, but He does and there’s great power in trusting Him. It clears the way for our security to be based solely on Him, not on our circumstances, or other people, not on ourselves, or our own ways of thinking. God, is faithful to lead us and He sees the big picture. He brings clarity and light through foggy times. He knows what’s around the other side of the bend where we can’t fully see. His timing is perfect even when we start to feel like we’ve been forgotten. No matter how we feel or what our current situation may be, we can be confident that God’s Presence will go before us, paving out pathways, guiding and guarding each and every step.
Trust in the Lord, He will never leave or forsake us!
