Learn to Trust

Posted on 3 CommentsPosted in devotions

“Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him.” Proverbs 30:5

“As you put My will before your own, you will learn how to trust Me. That is what I desire to teach you now. When you trust in Me with all of your heart, you will be richly blessed. I know when you are counting on Me to be what no one else can be for you. I know when you are placing all of your confidence in Me to do what no one else can do for you, and I won’t let you down—ever! I will bless you and make you a blessing. Have not I said, seek Me first and My kingdom, and all of these things will be added to you? Didn’t I say not to let My words leave your mouth, but meditate on them day and night and obey Me, and I will make your way prosperous, and cause you to have good success? Didn’t I promise that when you delight in Me, I will give you the desires of your heart? Have not I said these things? So why is your heart hardened against Me? Why have you behaved as though I didn’t keep My promise? Didn’t I say when you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, then you will ask what you will, and it will be done to you? Are you abiding in Me? Is My word abiding in you? I will forever uphold My promise to you. Trust in Me. Trust in My name, My nature, and character. Every Word I’ve spoken is pure, and My ways are perfect, says the Spirit of the Lord.”

(References Matthew 6:33; Joshua 1:8; Psalms 37:4; John 15:7)

Open Up to Him

“I am the Lord your God, Who brought you up out of the land of Egypt. Open your mouth wide and I will fill it” Psalm‬ ‭81:10‬, AMPC‬‬.

Dear friend, there will be times in your life when you will not know who to open up to. You will wonder who you can trust, who has your best in mind and who is truly safe. But there’s one person who you can trust; He is your heavenly Father. You opened your heart to Him once so He could come in and rescue you from a life of sin. The challenge becomes to continue opening your heart to Him as you walk throughout life. He wants to fill your heart with love, your mind with understanding, your mouth with words, and your life with good things. Open up wide to Him when everything is telling you to close your heart. Open up wide to Him and He will come in and fill you completely until you are overflowing and now able to bless others.

Say out loud from your heart: Father, I come to you empty and ask you to fill my heart with your love, fill my mind with understanding, fill my mouth with words to say, and fill my life with good things. Lord, fill every empty place. I need you, God. Help me continue to open up to you wide as I walk throughout life. Thank you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
