Trust in the Lord

Trust in the Lord by Carey Smith

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5

Can you describe this verse in a picture?  Recently I was walking through the parking lot heading into Wal-Mart and I noticed a family walking out.  What caught my eye was seeing a little girl, around 4 years old holding on to her daddy's hand.  Now, she was not just holding it, she was holding it, walking behind him, with her eyes closed, skipping and smiling.  To me, that is a perfect picture of this verse.  Joyfully trusting in God, allowing Him to lead you without struggling against His direction or trying peek over His shoulder to see what is coming.  This little girl trusted her dad to lead her away from the dangers of the parking lot and she did not have a care in the world because he was holding firmly to her hand.

When I think of the word "Faith" I am also reminded of Queen Esther. In Esther chapter 4, we find that the Queen is preparing herself to meet with the king.  She is going to approach him unannounced which is punishable by death, unless the king extends his scepter.  The Jews are facing certain destruction and Esther has asked her people to fast and pray because she is going to approach the king, unannounced.  She does not know if God will have the king extend his scepter but she is going to trust God that his is what she needs to do, right now.

Apply Proverbs 3:5 to your life today. Where do you need to trust God with no reserves. God does not ask us to rely on our understanding, but to trust Him with all of our heart.

Daily Prayer Focus: Recommit to trust God in all your ways. Ask God to give you a childlike faith. Lean on God, Acknowledge Him, and He will direct  your paths.

On The Go Prayer Focus: Please pray for traveling mercies as the team arrives in Tel Aviv, Israel then drives to Jerusalem!.  The team will be ministering in the Holy Land March 8-18, 2018. Pray for travel mercies, "Divine Appointments," opportunities to minister, decisions for Christ, and God's will to be done.
