Trust In the Lord

Are you seeking direction from the Lord. Many of us wonder how will we hear from Him? How do we position ourselves to receive His guidance? The answers to these questions are in the Word of God.

Have Confidence

One of the keys to receiving direction from the Lord is to keep on trusting. The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths” (Proverbs 3:5-6, KJV).

The word trust in verse 5 means to have confidence in someone, to be secure in him, to have faith in him, to believe in him. Simply put, God is telling you, “I want you to have confidence in Me, in My ability to lead you, guide you, direct you, protect you, and provide for you.” God wants you to trust Him.

The enemy has been attacking you lately because he is trying to shake your confidence in God and in His Word. But the devil is a liar. Have faith in God. He has never failed, and He never will.

Don’t Limit God

The Bible says to trust in the Lord and not lean on your own understanding. In other words, do not depend on your own knowledge because you are limited. God may not come through for you the way you expect, but do not limit Him.

He is the God of the impossible, and His ways are higher than your ways. His thoughts are higher than your thoughts (Isaiah 55:8-9). He will answer you in a way that will shock you, and He is about to do something new in your life, something explosive.

He said in Isaiah 43, “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert” (verse 19).

Pray About Everything

Back to Proverbs 3. God is telling us to trust Him, depend on Him, and acknowledge Him in all our ways.  To acknowledge God in all your ways means to pray about everything, to seek His will in all you do. Are you about to make decisions in your business, employment, relationships? Talk to God about these things, and He will show you which choice to make.

He said in Jeremiah 33, “Call unto Me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (verse 3).

God will guide you. He just wants you to involve Him in everything you do. “Commit everything you do to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will help you” (Psalm 37:5 NLT). The word commit in this verse means to roll your cares on the Lord.

The Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need and thank Him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus” (verses 6-7).

God Is in Control

Do not worry about how God’s purpose for your life will be fulfilled. King David said in Psalm 138, “The Lord will work out His plans for my life —for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me” (verse 8).

You cannot make God’s plan come to pass in your life. God is responsible. He is in control, He is on the throne, and He is working all things together for good (Romans 8:28). Lift your hands to heaven and say, “God is working it out.” Trust in the Lord!

We See Him Working

As we are ministering to individuals all around the world each week, we are seeing a global picture of God working on behalf of His people. Lost loved ones are coming to Jesus. Sicknesses are leaving bodies and health is restoring. Holy Spirit impartations are transforming lives. Fear is leaving, in Jesus’ name. Cancer is bowing its knee. Depression and anxiety are lifting. There is an acceleration of the plans and purposes of God in people’s lives. God is strategically moving His children into positions and networking them to create the greatest impact for the Kingdom. We are living in exciting times!

Partners like you have made it possible for us to be a source of hope to men and women around the world. Through our Morning Prayers, services at Miracle Healing Center, and other outreaches, God has shown His presence and power. He has transformed hearts and deepened faith as we have been faithful to evangelize and disciple everyone He brings to us. Thank you for freeing us up to do the work of God. Every time you’ve given, you’ve fueled our vehicle to take the good news of the gospel to the nations.
