“Trust in the Lord completely and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on Him to guide you, and He will lead you in every decision you make.” Read Psalm 3:5 (TPT). The next statement which comes after “Trust in the Lord completely” is quite telling, “Do not rely on your own opinions.” What does this mean?
Scripture helps us answer this, “This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, “Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” Read Zechariah 4:6 (KJV). Another verse that will help us answer this question, “For it is [not your strength, but it is] God who is effectively at work in you, both to will and to work [that is, strengthening, energizing, and creating in you the longing and the ability to fulfil your purpose] for His good pleasure.” Read Philippians 2:13 (AMP).
Watch this, “I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess.” Martin Luther. The Bible also says, “And my faith in Him convinces me that He is more than able to keep all that I’ve placed in His hands safe and secure until the fullness of His appearing.” Read 2 Timothy 12:1b (TPT). Therefore, we can’t go wrong when we wholeheartedly commit to the Lord God Almighty. The creator of the universe and the Bible says it like this, “God claims the world as His. Everything and everyone belongs to Him!” Read Psalm 24:1 (TPT). This is an amazing Scripture. Think with me for a moment; how hard can it be to trust someone who owns everything, including the earth and the people? It should be easy right, but for the baggage people carry. Beloved, let us continually lean on God, as His wall is a steady wall.
My Father, thank You, Your grace, is at work in me helping me to trust You wholly and daily. I am grateful that I have You as My Father who never ever fails, and for that, I am indebted to You.
