“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;” Proverbs 3:5
Lately, everywhere I turn, God seems to be telling me, “Trust Me”. I keep saying, “I do trust You, Lord.” However, I am starting to understand that He wants me to trust Him for so much more than just my salvation or even for a healing. He wants me to trust Him in every little area of my life.
For some reason, that seems so hard. I look around at my circumstances, and it is so hard to see what God has planned. So many things seem to be going wrong, how in the word will He pull us out? But I have to trust Him when He says, “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways, And My thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:9
He says again to me, “Just trust Me.” With every devotional I read, every sermon I hear, every Scripture I read, He just keeps telling me to trust Him. I am trying. Every day I pray that I can give it all to Him, that I can trust Him, even with the things that “don’t matter” because to Him, it all matters.
In Matthew 10:30, He says, “But the very hairs of your head are all numbered.” He cares about it all. He cares about the things that we seem to think are so insignificant. We have to trust that His plan is better than our plan. We have to trust that He will see us through. And on the days when it seems that our faith is wavering, we have to be like the man in Mark 9:24. It says, “Immediately the father of the child cried out and said with tears, ‘Lord, I believe; help my unbelief!'” This is my prayer today, that when my faith wavers, that I pray that the Lord will help my unbelief.
Lord, today I trust You with even those things that seem insignificant. Help me to remember that Your ways are not my ways. Help me to remember that you have a better plan for my life than I could ever imagine. I believe, Lord, help my unbelief.
