“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
Read: Proverbs 3:1-12
“Trust me!” Hearing this sometimes makes us even more skeptical. Why should we have to be told to trust someone when our trust should be freely given? Can you trust someone who has to ask to be trusted? The world we live in is less trusting than the times we might have grown up in. With predators, scammers and identity thieves we can justify being leery.
Other times, when we hear “Trust me”, we can take comfort in knowing we can trust another when things just are not going right. There are times we need to abandon our fears and feel the safety of trusting someone.
When do you trust and when do you question a trust? We all have been fooled before. Discernment is the key to finding real trust in others. Discernment is finding a spiritual peace, depending upon the HOLY SPIRIT to guide our thoughts and reasoning instead of trusting ourselves.
King David got it right when he said in Psalm 20:7; “Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our GOD.”
Today’s prayer: “GOD MY FATHER, Thank YOU for loving me, even when I am not trustworthy. Help me to follow you. I can trust YOU more than myself for YOU are ABSOLUTE TRUST. Amen.”
