Scripture Read: Proverbs 3; 4
Title: Trust In the LORD
(H) Highlight verse: "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him and He will make straight your paths." Proverbs 3: 5 & 6
(E) Explain: Trust is defined as the assured reliance (confidence) on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something. Trusting God is something that should come naturally and yet it seems to be one of the hardest things we face as people of God. Author, radio host, and founder of Joni and Friends, an organization accelerating Christian ministry in the disability community, Joni Eareckson Tada writes, “Real satisfaction comes not in understanding God's motives, but in understanding His character, in trusting in His promises, and in leaning on Him and resting in Him as the Sovereign who knows what He is doing and does all things well.”We often do not know why certain things happen, but we should trust that God has our best interests in mind and he is worthy of our trust.
(A) Application: :
Three Hindrances to Trusting God
(R) Respond: LORD, help me to trust you with all my heart and not lean on my understanding. May I acknowledge you in every way, trusting that you will make my paths straight.
