Do you have that one special significant other or a very good friend in your life? That you would give your heart to and trust them implicitly with it? John 14:1” Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.” This is what God through Jesus Christ is telling the world today. Do not let your heart be troubled over the issues of life but trust me and give your heart into my capable hands.
Jesus was our optimum role model as he lay in a grave dead for three days trusting in the Father to raise him from the dead and breathe new life into his lifeless body. Was this not the ultimate experience in trust? Depending on someone else to restore your life to you? We too can trust our hearts fully to our Lord God as He faithfully raised Jesus from the dead; so he will take care of all our needs and take special care of us when it is our final curtain call.
More than anything the Lord wants us to trust him with our whole hearts and not halfheartedly. Proverbs 3:5” Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding says it clearly that we are to walk before the Lord with our hearts wholly trusting in him and not to lean on our own understanding to solve the puzzles in life that we face. We need to learn to depend on his wisdom and understanding to direct our lives in the right way. Proverbs 28:25 teaches us, “But he who trusts in the Lord will be prospered.”
I can share with you my friends that trusting in God with our whole hearts instead of sitting on a rock fretting about the problems that surround us is much easier on us emotionally, physically and spiritually and He will direct us into more creative answers than we would otherwise come up with on our own. Peter summed it up in I Peter5:7” casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” There is an old hymn that has this phrase in it: “What a privilege we have in carrying every burden to God in prayer.” What else would we want to do?
