Trust is Quiet Confidence
To trust is to be confident of something in the present or in the future. Trust can also be in the One Who made us.
David encourages us to place our trust in the Lord.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” ~ Proverbs 3:5-6 NASB
The Lord talks about those who seek Him with an undivided heart. David cries out for the Lord to give him an undivided heart. We can agree with David’s prayer.
“Teach me Your way, Lord, that I may rely on Your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear Your name.” ~Psalm 86:11 NIV
To be undivided means to be whole. When we seek the Lord with our whole heart, He says we will find Him.
Blessing for Deeper Trust
I pray you will find deeper trust in the Lord from a whole heart.
May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” ~ 1 Thessalonians 5:23 NIV
