TRUST IN GOD IN ALL THINGS
TEXT: PROVERBS 3: 5, 6
â€œTrust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy pathsâ€ (Proverbs 3: 5, 6).
The Scripture says: â€œBut without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek himâ€ (Hebrews 11: 6). God expects us to have absolute faith in Him. This entails trusting His Word, character and track record of faithfulness. It is impossible to please Him if we do not trust Him. Let us read this faith exhortation of Samuel Rutherford, â€œBelieve Godâ€™s Word more than you believe your own feelings and experiences.â€ In whom do you trust? If you are a child of God, trust in Him with all your heart. Do not be your own god. It is your faith in God that will see you through lifeâ€™s challenges. Our text counsels us to trust in God and acknowledge Him in all our ways. In times of persecutions, disappointments or academic problems, trust in God, remain faithful to Him, and you will experience divine intervention.
Challenge: Repose your trust in God and not in man.
Prayer: Help me Lord to trust you in all things.
Quote: Do not be your own god.
