Trusting in God is about having confidence in His plan, even when the path ahead is unclear. This trust is not a passive resignation but an active surrender, acknowledging that God’s wisdom surpasses our understanding.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (NKJV) encapsulates this sentiment perfectly: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths." By trusting in Him, we allow Him to steer our lives in the right direction, even when we cannot see the road ahead.
It’s about recognising that, while we cannot predict every outcome, we are in the hands of a loving Creator who knows our journey’s end. This trust brings peace as we rest assured that we are never alone and that He guides our steps. Trust is faith exercised, it’s only then you get to see what happens next.
Trust is faith exercised.
Lord, help me trust Your perfect will for my life. Amen.
Write down some of your fears and pray about each one, asking God to help you.
