“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, and He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way]” Proverbs 3:5-6, Amplified
When we are in a place in our lives where we have more questions than answers, we need to trust Him. We need to trust that He is up to something good, even though we have no idea what that is. We need to trust that His plan for us is not for disaster, and that He is leading us to our future and hope. Let’s anticipate His good plan for us! Even when we look with our natural eyes, and we see things we do not understand, let’s choose to stand on our faith in Jesus! Let’s trust in and confidently rely upon His goodness and trustworthiness!
Instead of trying to put the pieces of the puzzle together to get a picture of where we are headed and what God is doing, let’s use the only piece of the puzzle we have in our hands. It is the piece of faith. Faith is defined as the complete trust or confidence in someone or something. As believers, we get to put our complete trust and confidence in Jesus! How awesome is that! As the God of our salvation, He wants us to trust Him and not be afraid.
Let’s rejoice in Him Who is our strength and song! Let’s trust Him beyond what we see! He wants us to look straight ahead and focus our gaze upon Him and Him alone, and refuse to look at the stormy skies or heed the voices of suspicion and fear. He wants us to put the hand up to the devil and his nonsense and say, “Talk to the right hand of the Father because I’m not listening to you anymore. I am trusting in the Lord and my gaze is focused on Him!”
Prayer: Father, I love You so much and I am so happy to be Your daughter! I want to trust You more. I am sorry for my lack of trust. Please forgive me and change me. You deserve my full trust! Give me unshakeable faith in You! Give me a heart to see what my eyes can not see. Give me feet to step into the unknown, knowing that You hold my future in Your hands, and that You absolutely will not fail me! Grant me more courage, my Lord! Grant me more strength where I am still weak! Let my faith rise! Let my trust in You explode and take me to new heights in You! Let me always remember that all of my hope is in You, Lord Jesus! Make me fearless because my trust is in the One Who goes before me! In the Mighty Name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
