“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 heart here denotes the soul, the very centre and seat of physical and spiritual life. In other words, every fibre of your being, every cell in your blood is involved in seeking God’s guidance. I understand it when people say as a Christian, you can’t afford to suspend your brain, and whilst that is prudent, we still need to submit and yield to the Holy Spirit. See what the Bible says, “But when the truth-giving Spirit comes, He will unveil the reality of every truth within you.” Read John 16:13 (TPT). Watch, the Holy Spirit is committed to working with a willing you, to reveal and illuminate truth to your human spirit.
Watch this, the one who trusts in the Lord completely is empowered. The Bible says, “But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Read Jeremiah 17:7-8 (NIV).
The Bible compares the man who trusts in the Lord to a fruitful tree whose roots are entrenched in the streams of Scripture. The Bible says, “where the rivers flow, there is life.” Read Ezekiel 47. The one who trusts in the Lord is fearless, is always fruitful and productive even in the midst of a drought.
This is such a beautiful read, “As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in Him will never be disgraced.” Read Romans 10:11 (NLT). This does not need any clarification because it is absolutely clear.
“Trust in God alone, and lean not on the needs of human help. Be not surprised when friends fail you; it is a failing world. Never reckon upon immutability in man: inconstancy you may reckon upon without fear of disappointment.” Charles Spurgeon
My Father in heaven, I am extremely grateful for Your loving kindness and grace and mercy. Thank You, You are seated on the throne of my heart, and for that Lord, my life belongs to You.
