Proverbs 3:5 ( AMP): 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.
There are so many days in our lives where we are just going from day-to-day doing our normal duties, jobs, responsibilities, etc. Then suddenly out of the blue it seems like the sky falls out upon us or something drastic happens to in our world. This could be a loss of a loved one, an unexpected tragedy, a job loss, an unexpected bill, you receive a bad doctors report and sickness & disease shows up in our body, the children may be acting crazy, all of a sudden your spouse wants a divorce out of the blue, your business fails and you have to declare bankruptcy, your business is struggling to stay afloat, etc. You get the picture all the things that happen around us called life. What should we do when these things happen? The Bible tells us to trust God.
Proverbs 3:5 says to lean on, trust in, and rely on the Lord; meaning that when something comes our way to knock us down and it will, we are not going to fail, why? Because the glory of God is resting upon us to see us through and He will not fail us, if we do what the Word says. That is trust in Him and lean on Him not our own understanding. I decided that by faith I’m not going to rely on myself or on my insight or understanding, but I will trust in the Lord with everything within me. When difficult times show up, this is not the time for me to run away from God but to pull closer to him.
Learning to trust God and His process is not always easy, but I know when I choose to believe his Word and not my mind everything will be all right!
