“Trust Me”. The words come so softly and yet so often. They are only two words, but when spoken from the One who knows, who sees and understands, when spoken from the One who is trustworthy, those two words have so much depth. Trusting God is not an option for the believer, it is required.
“Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths” (Prov. :5-6, KJV)
There are times when it’s easy to trust God, when everything is going just the way you want. It’s especially easy to trust Him when He is taking you through times of great joy and blessing! But it’s in the times of sorrow, in the times of misunderstanding, in the times of silence, it’s in the nighttime when it is not so easy to trust Him. That’s why we must be reminded to trust Him with our whole hearts. Charles Spurgeon says it beautifully in the June 1st morning reading (https://www.heartlight.org/spurgeon/0601-am.html). We must learn to praise the Lord in both the day and the night.
It certainly isn’t in our own strength! I cannot trust the Lord, in the difficult moments, when relying on my own strength. If I am going to trust Him, I need Him to give me the trust that is necessary. I need His grace, which is His power and strength working in me. I need Jesus!
Let us ask the Lord to give us grace to trust in Him with all our hearts.
