Trust the Lord with all your heart lean not on your own understanding….
On Friday I received some news that I was not really ready or praying for – quite the opposite actually. And I remember feeling so crashed – I am an emotional person so I found myself in tears. I immediately talked to my husband, my mum and my small sister. During my devotion that morning as I was studying a book that is part of my devotions – the author expounded on the need to have spiritual counselors and went ahead to identify who they are and who they can be. I smiled because I realized my inner circle is doing well exactly what the author was talking about.
Anyways, so I talked to all 3 of them and the common thing they all said is ‘God knows and His ways are not our ways…but they are best ways’…..so after a while I went back to my prayer journal and I wrote that I choose to trust you God. While in a cab I found myself thinking about what it means to trust God and how can I choose to trust God even when I feel bad? It hit me that the depths of trust, the nature of trust – is revealed when things are not going our way. It’s easy to trust God when after a month of prayer He answers literally everything on your prayer list, but it’s not the same when that doesn’t happen.
In that same book – the author wrote that ‘Christians are known by their fruits’ – and it’s amazing how when I read it I was like exactly – little did I know that a few minutes later I will need to show that trusting in God is good because in the end I believe that His plans for my life are good. So I needed to plant a seed in trust and in faith that it will bear rich fruit that will reveal the depth of my relationship with God – which will stay true and be evident.
So my word for the week and for the month and just for life – is to trust God ALWAYS – even when it doesn’t make sense. When I was studying the verse I realized that trust is about the heart, and the heart decides to feed the mind so that we act in trust – whereas understanding is solely about our mind. And so as we decide to trust in God – it doesn’t have to make sense in our minds, it just has to make sense in our heart – the rest will follow!
We choose to trust you!
Have a blessed week and may this be a great month!
