“Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this.” Psalm 37:5
“Trust me.” We say this to convince someone to believe that what we are stating is true. Scripture tells us over and over that trusting in the Lord is paramount if we want to live a godly, purposeful life. His ways are true, and we can rely on Him.
So for me trust is:
Office bonding exercises often involve blindfolding a person in order to determine if they can trust the other person to lead them somewhere safely. They have to rely on the seeing co-worker to guide them away from any dangerous obstacles. Those that do trust the co-worker, walk at a steady pace. But those that are unsure walk more cautiously and try to “see” by way of touch or sound; they doubt the person leading them has their best interests at heart or is capable.
In order to follow God’s will, I must place my trust in it. If doubt creeps in, my steps slow. My mind begins to question. “What-ifs” cloud my thoughts.
Jesus said He is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Each time I am faced with a decision, I can either trust in that statement or begin to doubt its believability.
Do I believe His teachings speak truth, or do I see them as antiquated and irrelevant? Does He truly give me life eternal and abundant, or is His will a straightjacket of rules that are impossible to live by?
How about you? Will you trust Him to lead you, even if you can’t clearly see why or where?
Dearest Lord, help me to erase all doubts that creep into the corners of my thoughts. Keep me focused on Your footsteps and living according to Your Truths as You guide me through this life into life everlasting. Amen.
