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. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
Today’s Morsel: To trust in the Lord with all of one’s heart, requires a self-development of one’s faith. Those who struggle with their faith in God will also have a harder time putting their trust in God. Paul said that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). Faith is not only knowing that God can, it is knowing that God will work all things for the good to them that love Him and are the called according to His purpose (Romans 8:28). You see, to trust in God is to simply take Him at His word. The prophets and people of old had to believe what God said or it did them no good. The same holds true for you and me today. When we read His word, we must believe what it says. If not, we are wasting our time as it will do us no good to read the Word if we do not believe it. If you lean to your own understanding, it could be very possibly be the wrong direction and the wrong motives.
Sing: I’m learning to lean, learning to lean, learning to lean on Jesus; finding more power than I’d ever dreamed; I’m learning to lean on Jesus.
Thought For Today: Trust in the Lord always.
