Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
Friends, the words trust in the Lord echo the command in Deuteronomy 6:5 To love God with all our beings.
Trust is complemented by Lean.
Trusting God is a conscious dependence on God.
Today’s world seems to have more than its share of con men and women, and people today are leery of placing their trust in anyone. Sad as it may seem, many would no doubt put God in that category and would rather trust in themselves. Can you imagine the folly of placing your trust in yourself instead of God?
Placing our trust in God is the wisest choice we can ever make in life. He is our all-present, all powerful, and all knowing Creator who loves us so much that he gave His Son to die for us. We are not victims of our circumstances, we are victims of our choices.
For the reasons aforementioned , and many more, God alone is worthy of our trust. And He is worthy that we trust Him with our whole heart, totally and without reservation. All of our being.
Trusting in Him means not leaning at all on our own understanding; to do that would be choosing a thimble full of knowledge compared to the ocean of wisdom He offers.
Ask yourself: Am I fully trusting in God or Leaning on my own understanding?
While there is yet breath in your body, you can receive Jesus Christ as your personal Savior. He is listening for your call. You can pray to Him in your own words, or by praying and truly believing the prayer below:
PRAYER OF SALVATION:
I confess that I have sinned against You, and I know that there is nothing I can do by my own efforts to change my condition. I believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood and died on the cross for my sins; And that He rose from the grave on the Third Day to grant me eternal life. I know You love me, God, and I love You. I place my faith and trust only in You to conform my heart to Your will; And to order my steps everyday, from this day forward. Thank You , Lord, for saving me.
When we accept salvation, God saves us immediately, and makes us fit for entrance into Heaven, however some changes God will empower you to make easily, while making other changes will be a process that may take months or even years to make. Regardless of your situation, I assure you that the Lord loves you more than you could ever comprehend, and He will be with you every step of the way. Pray, study God’s Word and ask Him to give you revelation of what you are reading. I also pray that the Lord will direct you to a true Bible teaching, Jesus loving church, where you can have the support of other believers.
