“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.”
God knows best. So trust Him. The end…
Of course there are comical connotations in the above statement, yet in reality, this should be our life statement. It really is as simple as that. God really does know best, so that is why we should trust Him.
Not only should we trust Him, but we should learn to distrust or rather not depend on our own understanding. In truth, that is probably harder than trusting God. We can trust God because we know that He is all powerful and sees all things and knows all things. But the difficult part is letting go, and letting God. We want to be in the driver’s seat of our lives, because although we know that God knows best, we still want to be in control.
It is like when we follow a satellite navigation route. We program it, follow its route, yet when we are led into a route or an unknown road that is not familiar, we tend to have less confidence in the GPS and start to take back control ourselves by not following the navigation’s instruction, which of course ends up causing us to become even more lost. It’s the same with our lives. When we try to take back control from God’s leading in our lives, we get even more lost and confused. We should simply put our trust in God, actively seek His will, seeking the next step, decision or words we should say, and let Him show us which path to take, what to do, and what to say.
We can have full confidence that God knows best. His plans for us are for good. Trust Him and see that He is good.
