“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” (Proverbs 3:5, 6, NKJV, Emphasis, RE). This is one of my favorite passages in the Old Testament. To trust is to have full confidence and complete reliance in someone; in this case, the Lord God. Man will often fail you but God never fails. We cannot rely upon our own wisdom because the Bible teaches that the heart is deceitful. How one feels in his heart is not the assurance that is one is saved and is traveling in the right way, spiritually speaking. We must place our trust in the Lord because He will never fail us nor mislead us. God in His Word will provide for us the way of salvation that is in His Son. It is important that this trust must come from a heart that completely surrenders to the will of the Heavenly Father without any reservation. How comforting to know that if we place our trust in the Lord, He will be involved in directing our paths in this life. So, whatever you may do in this life that is honorable, always acknowledge that it is God who has blessed you and has provided for you in His providential care. 1/27/16
