I am teaching you today—yes, you— so you will trust in the Lord. Proverbs 22:19 (NLT)
In this Christian life, one of the most difficult subjects to teach is learning how to trust! What makes it so difficult is that trust requires living with elements of the unknown and relinquishing control! As such, trust threatens our independence thereby inducing fear within us! Typically, fear cause us to ponder all the what if’s! In effect, we worry ourselves for absolutely no reason at all! However, in Christ, trust is not a matter of control, but willful submission by those who acknowledge him as Lord and Father over their lives! For those who do, He loving leads and guides us while supplying all of our needs! In fact, trusting Him entitles us to live worry free, because we’re totally dependent on Him! As such, now is the time to: (1) Trust that He will settle all the what if’s as He is the only one who knows all about us! (2) Believe that His word is true and He will do everything that He has promised to do! (3) Trust Him even in the most unimaginable situations! (4) Stop struggling to hold our lives together, because He has the power to control it! So, this my friend, is what a lesson in trust is trying to teach you and I hope you understand!
