Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust is a hard thing for me. In fact trust is the one thing I find that I make people work hard for. I blame it on tons of disappointments and my upbringing. You see my dad always told me that one can never trust anyone but themselves. He to had his share of disappointments which made him a bit guarded with people. His words however I took to heart. I learned to only rely on myself and I learned to only trust myself . As you can imagine this was a huge stumbling block when it came to falling in love with my husband. You see I had to learn to trust someone other than myself. Bless my husband and his understanding nature because he was willing to make the effort. I would like to think that it was an effort that he to this day doesn’t regret making.
When I started my christian walk once again this thing called trust became a stumbling block for me. How was I suppose to believe that God was going to take care of me? How was I suppose to believe that I was truly saved with no cost for me? Yet it did come with a cost. Just like with my husband things are required of me. And just like my husband God tells me just what He wants from me.
God shows me daily in His word areas in my life that I need to work on. He shows me areas He feels I could use a little growth in. During my personal prayer time with Him I am reminded by Him how far I have actually come. Sometimes I have even caught myself by surprise by how far I actually have come. The difference in myself today is like the difference in night and day. All because I learned to trust Him and not myself.
Trusting God’s plans for you open you up to a whole line of blessings you can never imagine. Trusting God by following His word allows personal growth in your your heart and spiritual walk. Trusting in God to provide you with your needs allows Him to show you with blessings in your deepest hour of need. Trusting God with all of your heart provides comfort during the many seasons of your life.
But How Do We Show That We Trust God:
We show Him this by following His word. By being willing to follow the instructions that He laid out so perfectly for us. We show Him by stressing less and praying more. We show Him by putting His will before our own. It all really seems pretty easy when you read it on paper. But really when you are trying to live it you find that really it is hard. Luckily God allows us a lot of grace and provides us with an unconditional love.
How is your trust level with God? Are you still struggling with it a bit? Maybe a talk with God is in order.
