Day 17

Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart

   and lean not on your own understanding;

 in all your ways submit to him,

   and he will make your paths straight

How hard is it to trust? and how much harder is it when someone breaks our trust to have confidence in them again? Trusting in someone or something is to have complete reliance in them. In a world where many relationships are broken or where we’ve been hurt – completely relying on anyone can be hard. 

Every day we trust in all kinds of situations – we trust a bus to deliver us to our destination, a supermarket to have the food we want, a hospital to have a doctor, diagnosis and a cure. But God calls us to trust him above everything, above situation, above how we feel and above what we see in front of us.

When you’ve been hurt by the world, in whatever form, it can be hard to trust. It can be scary to trust, to open up and feel vulnerable, but God calls us to trust him above everything. Because he is all-powerful, all-knowing and loves you so much he will never let you down. He wants the very best for you. So trust him with your whole heart, with everything you have, even when the way ahead looks confusing, put your plans in his hands and he’ll work everything for good.
