Forty Days to Flourish: Day 30

Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Prov. 3:5-6 (NLT)

Life becomes so much more carefree when we learn to put our trust in God for everything!  If you are relying on your own ability, resources or others as the object of your trust, you’ll become anxious and worried.  None of those sources are all powerful, all knowing and ever present.  In fact, it’s putting way too much pressure on others when you put your trust in them!  People are not infallible.  They will let you down.  But, God is perfect, powerful and loving!  He is the only true source worthy of our complete trust.  If you’ve put your trust in Him, He will never let you down!  Now, the question becomes to what extent are you trusting Him?  For many, God has become someone to whom they put their trust in for eternal salvation, but they fail to put their trust in Him for the practical everyday decisions of life.  They stress and worry over issues because they are not trusting God with all their hearts.  If God is big enough to trust for our eternity, isn’t He big enough to trust for our daily needs?  He is God of both time and eternity!

Are you trusting Him with all your heart?  What part of your heart do you hold back from committing to Him?  Someone once said our hearts are like a hotel and we offer Jesus only one room.  It’s time to give Him the Master Key and trust Him with all your heart!
