“Trust in the Lord”
"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 straight your paths."
God tells us to trust in Him and don’t lean on our own understanding. We don’t understand everything that happens in our lives (hands up). We need to trust that God is in control and that He knows what is best for our lives. Have you ever had prayers not answered and now that life events have played out you look back and think “thank God you didn’t answer that prayer”? Garth Brooks wrote a song about that. That is so true, God knows best!!!!!
We need to always thank God that He is Sovereign and not only acknowledge that He exists, but confirm He is our Lord. We need to acknowledge Him and surrender to Him and trust in Him fully.
When we trust in the Lord and follow His guidance. God will protect us when we follow His path, the straight path is the one of obedience. We may stumble along the way or need redirection, but God repeatedly brings us back when we have a heart to obey Him. His path isn’t always easy, but it’s always the best.
