Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.-Proverbs 3:5
In every relationship there must be trust or that relationship will fail. A child must trust the guidance of their parents, a husband and wife must trust one another, a boss must trust in their employees, and an employee must trust their boss’s guidance. Trust is the building block of our relationships and when it comes to serving God nothing is more important than trust. In order for us to have faith in God we must be faithful to God.
A person can’t commit to God with a whole heart unless they trust God to do what he said he would do. It is impossible for a man to please God without faith and it is impossible for a person to have real prayer with God without trust in God. When it comes down to it a believer must trust that Jesus died for our sins and that he rose from the dead. We must trust that God exist and we must trust that the Bible is the word of God. We must trust in the word of God and the power of the word of God in our everyday life.
When I was younger I used to run with a crew and we had a strategy for attacking other crews. We would target the strongest member of the opposing crew and then we would humiliate that member. The remaining members of that crew would either disband or become weak because they had no trust in protecting themselves after their strength was destroyed. The enemy thinks the same way our greatest strength is our trust in God, so that is exactly where the devil begins his attack. Doubt is the greatest enemy to the faith of believers and doubt is the greatest weapon that satan uses against us. We must “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour (1 Peter 5:8).” The devil seeks to destroy your trust in God from the beginning he crept in the Garden and placed doubt in Eve’s faith in the word of God. Guard your heart this is a war and your strongest point is the primary target of the enemy’s camp. This is why the word of God says “Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. (Ephesians 6:16)” The enemy is out there trying to sow seeds of doubt in the hearts of believers but it is the command of God that we trust in God with all of heart and lean not to our own understanding.-Amen
A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.- James 1:8
