Relying on God Requires Faith

 

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV)

 

When you lean on something, you trust that it will hold you up. When you lean on the Lord, you are saying, “I have faith that God is strong enough to hold me up.”

 

God told Joshua, “No one will be able to defeat you all your life. Just as I was with Moses so I will be with you. I will not leave you or forget you.” (Joshua 1:5 NCV). And God says that to you too. As long as Joshua leaned on God, He was undefeatable. Joshua accomplished the impossible because He was depending on the Lord.

 

Who or what are you leaning on for strength? Are you leaning on the approval of other people? That is a very shaky foundation. People are going to let you down. Nobody can hold you up all the time. Eventually, they’re going to get tired and you’re going to get dropped. You can’t even trust in yourself. Have you noticed how often you let yourself down? You make promises to yourself all the time that you don’t keep. So what can you do?”

 

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV). Leaning on the Lord can be scary. Sometimes it’s uncomfortable. It can make you worry, “Is God going to come through? Is He going to hold me up?” That’s why it requires faith to lean on the Lord. You have to believe He has your best interest at heart. You have to trust Him even when you don’t understand, and you have to move forward convinced that He will make your paths straight. When you do this, you will discover that “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NLT).

Now talk to God
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. Take a minute to write a prayer of response to what God said to you. _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________ _____________________________________________________________________________________________
