Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Proverbs 3 5 b

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 3:5

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

 

There are going to be times when you say, “God, I don’t understand why this is happening.”  That’s when you must learn to accept that you will not always understand everything God is doing. That’s when you just have to trust that God has a plan and that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Life is not always going to be easy but if you learn to trust God with all your heart you will have peace, joy and happiness in this life.

Perfect Peace

Isaiah 26 3.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 26:3

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in you.

 

No matter what you go through, if you stay focused on the Lord and trust in Him, He will give you peace to get through anything. Give up your need to control every situation and just let God have His way.  Let Him give you the peace your heart longs for.

Rely on God’s Love

1 John 4 16.jpg

 

Verse of the Day:  1 John 4:16

And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.  God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in them.

 

If your first thought of the day is “God loves me” it will change the way you react to things that happen throughout your day.  No matter what happens tell yourself, “It’s going to be okay, God loves me”.  You can rely on God’s love for you and His strength will get you through the most difficult days if only you would trust in His love for you.

God Will Get You Through It

2 Corinthians 4 8-9.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

 

It’s not how many times you get knocked down, it’s how many times you get back up.  Jesus said we would have troubles then He said not to worry because He overcame the world.  Bad things happen, it’s how we handle them that matters.  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and have confidence in His love for you because He will get you through your troubles.

A Heart at Peace

Proverbs 14 30

 

Verse of the Day:  Proverbs 14:30

A heart at peace gives life to the body, but envy rots the bones.

 

When you have a real relationship with God, He changes your heart.  You start to feel freed from anger, worry and envy.  You have peace in your heart and a hope that makes you joyful.  But a heart that envies the happiness, prosperity and success of others exhausts the body and soul.  Don’t let envy steal your peace and joy, don’t let it affect your spirit or your health. Trust in the Lord, what is meant for you won’t pass you by.

Trust in the Lord

Isaiah 26 4.jpg

 

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 26:4

Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord, the Lord himself, is the Rock eternal.

 

Building trust takes time.  The more you get to know God, the more your trust in Him will grow.  When you truly trust in God you will experience the perfect peace that comes from knowing that God is in control. Worrying doesn’t change a thing.  Instead, focus on getting to know God and let of go of worry and let God have His way in your life.

A Two-Step Process

psalm 37 3

 

Verse of the Day:  Psalm 37:3

Trust in the LORD and do good; dwell in the land and enjoy safe pasture.

 

There is a two-step process to receive this promise. The Lord will take care of all your needs but you need to trust in Him and do good.  Notice it says “and” do good, not “or” do good. While you are waiting and trusting on God to fulfill His promise have faith. Moreover, do good, always keeping His commandments and doing the things that are pleasing to the Him.
