“Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know.”
The Book of Proverbs gives us advice for a variety of circumstances; but, the statement in Chapter 3, verse 5 covers every possible situation that we may ever encounter. Trusting can be a challenge especially a total and complete trust overriding everything we thought we already knew. This task is not something that “we of ourselves” can successfully do. Thankfully, the very next verse tells us how this may be accomplished.
“Remember the Lord in everything you do, and he will show you the right way.”
Remembering the Lord involves holding to God’s Truth in mind, heart and soul at all times and in all conditions. Knowing God’s place in our lives and that He is the very Life and Breath that we call our own, frees us to “let the government be on his shoulders.” We are able trust by knowing that the Lord is God’s Law that governs and guides and graces all of His creation.
With Grateful heart and praise forever, Father, we give you thanks. Amen.
