“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding….” Proverbs 3:5

No matter what season of life I travel through or how circumstances change, the call to trust God remains constant. I’ve trusted the Lord for a husband, for the well-being of my children, for sicknesses to be healed, for friends and family members to be saved, for fruitful work. You name it. I’ve trusted for it. And God has always proved to be faithful. Not that He has worked all things together according to my desires, but for something far greater. He has worked all things together for my good.

You’d think after all these years, my trust would have expanded beyond borders. But in truth, nothing blocks my trust in God more than me. Rather than trusting Him with all my heart, I still tend to lean on my own understanding. In other words, I prefer to trust myself: a flawed, mistake-ridden human being rather than the invisible sovereign Creator of the universe who loves me more than I can imagine. Doesn’t make a lot of sense, does it?

Borderless trust depends on a borderless God. This kind of trust quenches our thirst for needing to know why by giving us the assurance that whatever the why, He is enough. His everlasting arms prove to be the only things in the universe that are big enough, loving enough, to lean on.

So let’s not let anything block us from offering to God what He alone is worthy of: our unbounded, unrestrained, borderless trust.

Praise You Lord, that we can fully trust in You. Today, we choose to lean on You rather than on our limited understanding. In Jesus’ name, amen.
