Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.” God’s promise in this scripture is meant to keep you anchored in Jesus when going through difficult times. To trust means to cling or lean on the Lord. It calls for you to place your hope and confidence in Christ alone. I admit it can be difficult to trust God when your circumstances speak louder than God.
Trust implies two things. It implies a waiting period and process. The passage of time can gnaw away at your faith and cause you to believe God has abandoned you. Sometimes it will take everything in you to trust God. Trusting God means you act on His Word despite how you feel or how things may appear.
Proverbs 3:6 instructs us to trust God in everything. This means everything: plans, family, career, finances, health, ministry, etc. It is critical not to fall prey to your emotions or attempt to take matters into your own hands as you wait on God. Trusting God demands your obedience and patience. During the waiting period, stay encouraged by reminding yourself of God’s faithfulness in past situations. God never has and never will forsake you. Challenging times demand that you trust God for the outcome.
The good news is that God is not confined by time, space, or circumstances. Absolutely nothing is too hard for God. As nerve-wracking as it can be, I have learned that God does some of His best work at the very last minute. God does what I call, “takes His time suddenly.” Just when it looks like all hope is lost, God He steps onto the scene and moves with purposeful swiftness. During the process your job is trust and obey God because He is moving on your behalf even when He seems to be deaf to your circumstances. Rest assured that God will not stop until your need has been satisfied. Trusting God will always lead you to victory!
Until next time…Be blessed!
