Dear Partners in Prayer,
Even as a "good" Christian we can find ourselves trusting the government, our political party, our retirement accounts, our pastor, our church far more than we actually trust God. Or we spend years trusting other people only to find our lives falling apart as people let us down. We may go to church and hear the right way to live, and then return home to try and do it on our own.
But Jesus makes it clear in John 15:5 that He is the Vine and we are only branches, that apart from Him, we can do nothing. He is to be the One Source we draw from. We are to rely on and lean on Him for each and all parts of our lives. Proverbs 3: 5, 6 reads "Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight."
This is a choice we can make on a daily basis, to include His Presence and enlist His guidance in all facets of our life. We choose to do what He says despite what our ?best' thinking on the matter, even despite what our "heart" tells us! Then we are truly choosing to trust Him.
