Proverbs 3:5-6 – Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding;6 in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
One of the most difficult things to do in this present dispensation is to relinquish our control to someone else and depend totally on that person to lead and guide us. The Word of God lets us know that we need to learn to wait on Him and to trust Him. But at times it isn’t the most desirable thing to do, because waiting involves trusting. So here are four reasons why you should trust Him.
1. He’s Conscious – This means He’s aware. The word of God says in Matt 6:8 that our Heavenly Father knows what things we have need of even before we ask Him. Isn’t it good to know that we have a God that is omniscient or all knowing? That’s the first reason why you should trust Him, because He already knows everything about you.
2. He’s Concerned – 1 Peter 5:7 says cast, which means to throw, your cares, anxieties and worries on Him because He cares about you. Yes He cares about you! Whatever concerns you concerns Him. So whenever you’re faced with problems, situations and obstacles that seem insurmountable just throw them on Him, He can handle them.
3. He’s Consistent – This means He’s faithful and you can also count on Him and trust Him to do exactly what He says He will do every single time. Even if others let you down and are unreliable, God will never let you down; you can always rely on Him. 1 Cor 1:9 says that God is faithful. So even when we are unfaithful to God, God remains faithful to us.
4. He’s Capable – Eph 3:20 says that God is able to do exceedingly, abundantly above all that we could ask or think according to the power that He works in us. This would suggest to us that nothing is too hard for God. Even if He chooses not to grant our request, He’s still capable of supplying our every need.
If you’ve been relying on yourself as well as others, and not depending totally on the Lord to meet your needs, I admonish you today to trust Him completely. The word of God lets us know that without faith it is impossible to please God. (Heb 11:6)
