It all comes down to whether you have faith in (act as if they it is true) the promises, character of God and His teachings in the Bible. Do you trust He is your greatest advocate and has supreme abilities to take care of you? Faith and trust are like a staff that you can lean on as you climb uphill. If you trust in God, the staff will support all of your life’s weight as needed.
I find the thought of leaning on you very comforting since I feel as if my path is more uphill than down. I confess to you that there are many things that I lean on when things get tough, things that block me from receiving Your precious gifts. I pray that you help me turn away from all theses inadequacies and shift my focus and weight to You.
Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
And those who know your name put their trust in you, for you, O LORD, have not forsaken those who seek you.
