God’s way is perfect. The Lord’s promise always proves to be true. He protects those who trust in him. Psalms 18:30 ERV
What does it mean to trust someone? I looked up the word ‘trust’ in the dictionary and found this: reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence; confident expectation of something; hope.
There have been times that I thought I trusted in the Lord in a situation, but when it came down to it, I was trusting that the Lord would see fit to do it as I wanted it done. That is not what trust looks like.
Trust throws out the possibility of control. It’s content with the outcome knowing that this will fit into a much bigger plan and purpose that merely can’t see right now. It places the end or a thing with the One who knows the end from the beginning. It’s confident that He who began a good work, is faithful to complete it.
Surrendering my will for His, that’s trust. I’m but a small speck of paint in a very large canvas. All I see is what surrounds me, but God, He sees it all. There are times He allows me to see a bit of the bigger picture, but His goal is to gain my trust without showing me the details.
I’m good with that! Someday I will see it all but for now, I’ll just lay back in His arms and trust Him.
