PROVERBS 29 - In God We Trust
25 Fear of man will prove to be a snare
But whoever trusts in the Lord is kept safe.
Our coins and our currency state "In God We Trust"; we say in our hymns and our prayers that we trust in God. But do we? What do we trust God with? Do we only trust Him with our prayers when we need a miracle and we have run out of options?
Let us change our lives by inviting God into every part of it. Let us place our trust in God in all aspects of our lives. How do we do that? We simply ask God to lead us and we commit to follow His will. This includes our businesses, our careers, our families, our hobbies, and our spiritual growth. In each area, ask God to intervene and to show you the path for your life. We must take time:
(1) to ask for His guidance daily,
(2) to listen for His response,
(3) to see the doors that He opens, and
(4) to give thanks to God in all situations.
We must be obedient to the direction He gives.
We must walk in faith that His way is the best.
There are many great men of the Bible who trusted God and by their obedience to God they accomplished His will. Think about the lives of Abraham as he left his family to follow God; Moses as he led the nation of Israel out of Egypt; David as he challenged Goliath; Peter as he got out of the boat to walk on water, and you as you follow God's lead today.
