Trusting God----------------------------WFW












Trusting in the Lord pays big dividends. Proverbs 3 teaches us about just a few.


Desire: A long and satisfying life.
God’s Instructions: My child, never forget the things I have taught you and store my commands in your heart,

Desire: Finding favor with both God and people, gaining a good reputation.
God’s Instructions: Never let loyalty and kindness get away from you! Wear them like a necklace; write them deep within your heart.

Desire: To have God direct my paths.
God’s Instructions: Trust in Me the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Acknowledge Me the Lord and seek My will in all you do.

Desire: To gain renewed health and vitality.
God’s Instructions: Don't be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear Me the LORD and turn your back on evil.

Desire: To have my barns fill with grain, and vats overflowing with the finest wine.
God’s Instructions: Honor Me the LORD with your wealth; give Me the first and the best.

God promises if we trust in Him with all our heart, letting go of our limited understanding of how things really work and allow Him to do His will which is always best and fill with knowledge, in our lives we will receive our heart desire. Continuing to set our course without consulting God, seeking His wisdom is unwise and will lead to heartache, pain, confusion and many other such sorrows. Why not take the path which leads to joy and success?

Going Deeper with Daily Acts of Faith
Turn to God for every decision.

It's impossible to please God apart from faith. And why? Because anyone who wants to approach God must believe both that he exists and that he cares enough to respond to those who seek him. Hebrews 11:6

Reflect throughout the day about your decisions; ask God if they were pleasing to Him.

Oh, that my actions would consistently reflect your principles! Psalm 119:5

Utilize the word of God for daily, moment by moment inspiration.

Instead you thrill to God's Word; you chew on Scripture day and night. Psalm 1:2

Search your heart; keep it filled with things which flow from the Father.

Above all else, guard your heart, for it determines the course of your life. Proverbs 4:23

Trust the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you in the right way.

Those who think they can do it on their own end up obsessed with measuring their own moral muscle but never get around to exercising it in real life. Those who trust God's action in them find that God's Spirit is in them - living and breathing God! Romans 8:5 Message

Those who are dominated by the sinful nature think about sinful things, but those who are controlled by the Holy Spirit think about things that please the Spirit. Romans 8:5 NLT

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not lean on your own
understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your
paths.
