Trusting the Lord can be difficult. Human trust tends to be conditional. That condition is predictability. “If I can predict the outcome, I trust the situation (or person.)” God is very consistent. He is consistent in grace. He is consistent in love. However, He is not predictable, because we base predictability on our standards, timeline, and agenda, not HIS.
Think of someone you trust. What did it take for them to earn your trust? Time? Communication? Honesty? Following through on promises? Your trust of that person didn’t develop overnight. Allow yourself the time to develop trust in God. He will be patient….and is more trustworthy than you could ever imagine!
O Lord God, I pray that your Spirit will be with me today and open my heart to Your loving grace and patience. Help me to learn to trust You more as I turn my will over to you daily. Leaning on my own understanding is not wise as I have proven that time and time again. Reveal to me as this day unfolds the causes of my doubts. Enlighten me Lord on how better to trust You. In Jesus’ name, Amen
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do and He will light your paths.
May the God of all hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
