Many things in life require trust. For instance you trust that when you turn on the tap water (clean) comes out. When you flick the light switch the room illuminates.
These are practical things. What about trusting that the sun will rise tomorrow morning? Or that you will wake up after sleeping to greet it. These things require a trust in something much greater than us.
It requires that we trust in the LORD – the covenant God of the universe.
Proverbs 3:5-6 puts it well,
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know Him, and He will make your paths straight.
Powerful words for sure.
There are days when I can lean into this heavily. However there are many days – let’s be honest – most, that I think,
I’ve got this.
Look at me.
It is these days that I need to say again and again this simple proverb. I need to trust God, with ALL my heart, remember that He has this, look to Him and know who He is and He will be with me.
