Trusting God Completely: Devotion with Podcast

I have always loved Proverbs 3:5-6.

5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.

How Should Christians Live? S2E34 Blue Skies and Green Pastures with Paula Adams

But last year God helped me see that I was only trusting him sometimes and with some things, but with other things I was still relying on my own strength. I was not always acknowledging him or seeking His will and I was often getting things wrong when I did that. One day I realized that when I tried to ‘figure things out’ or ask friends what to do, or just ignore the problem , I was not trusting that God was willing and able to help me with that problem. Some of it was just old habits and the fact that I tend to be a bit impulsive and some of it was that I really did not trust God completely. God showed me that he didn’t just die for my sins so I can go to heaven some day, but that he also cares about my life on earth. I began to see God as the Good and loving Father that he is! Not just a powerful judge or creator, but someone who knows my needs. You can trust Him, too.

Matthew 6:33 helps me when I get worried about earthly things I think about this promise.

Seek ye first his kingdom and his righteousness and all these things will be give to you as well.

And Phillipians 4: 6-7 gives me supernatural peace in times of trouble.

6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7 And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I pray that I will never doubt your love and care for me, but when I do , I trust that you love me anyway and are willing to forgive me when I ask. Thank you for your mercy and grace. Please bless all who read this post today and show them the way to you. Amen.
