Proverbs 3:5 (ESV)
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
Trust in God and stop trying to make sense of everything.
Trust is something that we do almost every day. We trust that our beds will not allow us to fall on the floor, and that our parents will provide us with food or our kids will do their chores. We trust that our favorite internet sites will allow us to login and chat with old and new friends. The statement that Solomon is making here is that we must trust in God, and trust enough for us not to know what God is doing in our lives. Solomon is also urging us to believe He is working on our behalf even when we feel like it doesn't make sense or the situation is not right. But, we have to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts, with all that is in us and lean not on what we understand because God's ways are higher than our ways. Some things may not have gone the way you wanted them to go, but you still have to trust in God and stop trying to figure it out. If we could figure it out then we would not need God, and we need God, so stop thinking and trust!
Today let us focus of trusting God for the problems we are having at home, at school, at work, in those private areas that no one knows about. Trust God and don't try to figure it out. Give it over to God fully and trust that He is working on your problem, even though it doesn't feel as if anything is happening.
Dear Lord, help us to trust in You today more than we have ever trusted in You. Help us, Lord, to stop trying to make things work out by our self, but to turn the whole situation over to You. In the Name of Jesus, Amen.
