Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

  and do not lean on your own understanding.”

Proverbs 3:5 ESV

This proverb falls into the “I don’t know if I can do that” category. How do I trust in the Lord with all of my heart? How do I not lean on my own understanding if that’s all I have? These are fair and normal questions.

For some, the answer will seem evasive, which actually supports the answer. What is the answer? Faith. Paul deals with this same idea in 1 Corinthians 1:18, “For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” Without faith, walking with God, and all that means, makes no sense.

So, how do I trust God with all of my heart? One faith step at a time. With each step of faith comes the opportunity for our faith to grow, which corresponds to ever increasing measures of trust in God. As our faith grows, so does our trust.

Begin to grow in your trust today by asking God for help in believing in the small things, that your faith may increase.
