Trusting the Lord One Step at a Time

We are on a journey, and on our journey we find there are paths. As we walk along the path of life we are taking many steps; each step is an act of faith. Each step is leading you closer to a destination. Some people intricately plan their steps and others approach life more spontaneous, but I believe all of us are aware we are going somewhere. We may be trying to understand life and what lies far ahead or even just right around the corner. We want to take good paths that lead to positive outcomes. I do, don’t you? We don’t want to get lost in life and end up going in the wrong direction. When faced with decisions and choices, what do we do? How do we get on or stay on the right path?

The answer lies in trusting in the Lord. He wants to direct our path. Trust implies a relationship that has been proven to be faithful. We don’t trust someone that hurts us and neglects the relationship. We also don’t trust someone we don’t know. Why would we? We trust someone we know well and we believe has our best interest at heart.; someone who has the answers we need and guidance we desire. When we place that trust in someone we act in faith and let’s face it, it is kind of risky. But here is what the Lord teaches us to do.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path. Proverbs 3:5-6

God never tells us to trust in people with all our heart. People will fail you and you will also fail people. It is inevitable. But God…….He is not people, He is not fallible, His ways are not our ways. And His love is perfect. His ways are right and they lead to life.

Proverbs 2:2 says, “Incline your heart to understanding.” Understanding is a good thing. So, is this a contradiction? Of course not! There are two types of understanding- our own and God’s. We are told not to lean on Our understanding . It is often based on our human logic, experiences, and perception. God tells us to trust Him and His ways. He sees the big picture of our lives while see only in part. His understanding is unlimited!

So it all boils down to this simple but powerful truth- He will direct your path. There is no greater thing than to know that the Lord is telling you which way to go, what path to take, and gently caring for you and your soul on this journey called life.
