Unfortunately, we have the tendency to put our trust in a lot of things, whether material or not. We trust our car that it’ll get us from point A to point B when we get behind the wheel. We trust the dentist and doctor that by their expert care we will keep all of our teeth and body. And so forth and so on.
But Proverbs 3:5-6 undoubtedly tells us in crystal clear english whom we should put our trust in, first and foremost!
We’ve been entrusted and commanded to put our entire trust in Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior who came as God in the flesh to provide the ultimate sacrifice for our sins so that we may have everlasting life through Him (John 3:16 ESV).
God is unequivocally sovereign, self-sufficient, all-powerful, and able. He meets ALL our needs, blesses us daily and in Him there is no variation, no shadow of turning. (James 1:17 ESV).
Hallelujah, He is the same, yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8).
Brothers and sisters, God wants it ALL because putting only a bit of your trust in Him and spreading some of the remaining trust in other things doesn’t work.
That being said, trusting in the Lord means to fully and completely rely on the Lord’s protection, providence, power, and promises, while trusting that He will direct our paths. This is not blind faith. In fact, it is an informed, intelligent wide-eyed faith.
If you been struggling like we always do, surrender all your worries and anxiety in the hands of God because the Lord is able, He will not fail you, and He will provide for you. Trust Him!
