Trust in the Lord

"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths" (Proverbs 3:5-6).

Solomon gives us the best advise in this verse. We are to trust in the Lord. This is not to be done with half your heart but with all your heart. How is this accomplished? He says by leaning not on your own understanding. He is not talking about a blind trust because he is talking about trusting in the Lord. Charles Spurgeon, who was noted for his ability with words, illustrates this beautify. He says, "let me commend to you a life of trust in God in temporal things. Walk in your path of integrity with steadfast steps, and show that you are invincibly strong in the strength which confidence in God alone can confer. Thus, you will be delivered from burdensome care; you will not be troubled with evil tidings. Your heart will be fixed, trusting in the Lord. How pleasant to float along the stream of providence! There is no more blessed way of living than a life of dependence upon a covenant-keeping God. We have no care, for He cares for us; we have no troubles because we cast our burdens upon the Lord"( Spurgeon, R. C. H.(2000).Daily Help (electronic ed.). Escondito , California : Ephesians Four Group.).
