Wednesday Word 11/16/2011

“Trust 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 paths.” ~Proverbs 3:5-6
You can quote it in your sleep, but do you live it out? In order to receive the abundance God has for us He calls us to a higher level of trust. He wants us to trust Him and only Him. Even when everything we see, hear, think, or feel is pulling us in a different direction, God urges us to put all of our confidence solely in Him. And yet sometimes that just seems so impossible…

The truth is that trusting God is not so much difficult as it is uncommon. Fully relying on the Lord is not the cool thing to do. In order to walk into the blessings in store for you, you must go against the grain. You will do things that stand out. People may think you are crazy. You may even question Him yourself sometimes. But all that doesn’t matter. Why? Because He will direct your paths. The beauty of fully relying on God is that He will give you every single thing you need to make it through. So when life gets difficult, don’t stop trusting and fail, trust that He still has it all under control.
