Trust in the Lord
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)
We are sinful humans so let’s not trust in our own intelligence to figure out divine things, let’s trust in the Lord. Our hearts are wicked and bent toward sin, which is why we must trust in the word of God as the only standard of truth. We cannot rely on a convincing argument or the majority opinion to determine what is right and what is wrong — we can only trust in the clear word of the Lord.
We acknowledge God and submit to His all-knowing eternal wisdom by not trusting in our own feelings when what we think is contrary to God’s Word. Feelings are like a caboose on a train, they are not required but the engine is.
Let’s pray today that we will make trusting in the Lord our daily habit in all areas of life.
