“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not on thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
How many times have you heard this statement and verse? I’d heard it for years before I finally came to realize what it truly meant to “trust in the Lord”. I don’t remember when it was exactly, but I do know it was through a series of “trials”. There was one “trial” in particular that I will tell you about. My dad found a piece of equipment on e-Bay that he needed for our home business, but we didn’t have the funds to purchase it, so we prayed for it. The evening before the auction ended, I was praying, and I felt an urge to pray for the money to come somehow, but my thoughts were “tomorrows a holiday, we won’t get mail and the check that dad was waiting for.” But, I prayed anyway, and that evening someone called us and told us someone had anonymously provided the money for us! I felt SO humbled.
I can’t tell you how to trust, exactly, but I can tell you that once you get to that point it as an AMAZING experience!! I had/have so much more peace in my life!
There are still times I stumble and try to take matters into my own hands, but, sooner or later, I end up giving it all back to Him!
So I encourage you…learn to Trust…let the Lord bless you!
