Proverbs 3: 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. It sounds so simple, just trust in the Lord, don’t lean on your own understanding… but so often, we “trust” in the things we see, the things we hear, the things we feel… When you are told that your position is being eliminated at work or that a family member has a terminal illness, it is easy to get caught up in worry and anxiousness. We start wondering what we are going to do, we start to scramble trying to figure out how things will work out, or how we can “help” fix things.
It is in these times that the Lord whispers in that still small voice… “just trust in me with ALL your heart.” It will not be easy, and there may be times when you will doubt and question whether God is really there for you, but rest assured… our God is faithful, He has a great plan for us, and as we rest in Him, He will bring you through each and every situation.
The Lord will always provide what we have need of, WHEN we need it. His timing is perfect, He is not early, He is not late, He is always on time. As we trust in Him and see Him provide and deliver time and time again, it will become easier to rest knowing that no matter how big the waves, no matter how dark the storm, no matter how loud the thunder, Jesus is there with us, holding us up in His loving hands, and He will direct our path. Be blessed and find rest today.
