Daily Lift – April 22nd, 2018

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding (Proverbs 3:5).

How much do you really trust God? That
question may offend you, but the writer
of Proverbs gives a challenge in teaching us
to “trust in the Lord with all [our] heart.” All?
Really? Shouldn’t I hold back part of my heart,
in case God is not really faithful?

Absolutely not! We must trust God with our
all because of the chasm of difference between
His knowledge and ours. I cannot “lean on
[my] own understanding,” simply because I
do not understand everything. My knowledge
is limited, and my wisdom is finite. God’s
knowledge and wisdom are infinite. He knows
all, and He knows best.

If we trust God with our all, our paths will be
straighter, brighter, better, and eternally blissful.
