Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
Trust is defined as a firm belief in the reliability, truth, ability, or strength of someone or something. These scriptures encourage us to trust in someone whom we have never seen. It tells us that we are to have a firm belief in the Lord. Hmmmmmm.......easier said than done right!!!! Our friends have let us down, our family let us down, and if we are honest with ourselves; we have let us down. The magnitude of hurt that consumes us after we have been let down by someone we trust sometimes is unbearable. It causes us to put up walls to keep others out so that we don't have to deal with the hurt and pain again. We tell ourselves, this will never happen again. We tell ourselves we never trust so easily. We tell ourselves that the next person will have to earn our trust. Then something happens in our life that requires us to do the very thing we said we wouldn't do...TRUST. It then becomes obvious that the one we need is the One we can't see and we stand at the fork in the road called a decision trying to determine which route is best. Do we go down the familiar path of friends and family, or do we walk by faith and not by sight down the road of hope. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result, in other words, we have always gone down the familiar road and now it's time to try something different. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths. God knows what is best for us and He knows the path which we should take and we have to do is trust Him,
Apostle T. P. Lane
