“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6
How many times have you tried to stop being afraid? Throughout the scriptures God tells His people to “fear not.” Here though, Solomon tries a different approach. He says to “Trust in the Lord”. But not just a casual trust; he said to trust in the Lord with all our heart. It makes sense. If we are going to stop fearing we must replace the fear with trust. That’s exactly what Solomon meant. He said not to listen to our own twisted logic, lies and misconceptions that lead us to fear. Instead we must trust God, submit our life to Him, lean on Him for good direction and He promises he will lead us. So today, don’t fear instead trust in the Lord. Bring your fears to Him.
Father, thank You for being there. Today, instead of fearing or leaning to my own understanding, I will put my trust in You. AMEN
Good morning. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
