Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. (Proverbs 3:5-6) When you are a child, you trust easily. When you are an adult, you have to learn to re-trust.
Trusting God is not as most people think because it is not something we must do. Rather it is something God does in us. This is because trust actually comes through God to us. It is not something we have to do on our own. It is a gift He gives us that we can then give back to Him. All we have to do is be willing. We must be willing to walk the trust journey with Him. If you want to grow in your trust, I encourage you to pray this simple prayer: “Lord, please help me trust You.”
Trusting is not as difficult as you may think. When you stand or stand up, you rely on your thigh muscles. You lean on them. When you trust God, you stand on the truth He has given. Truth is like a spiritual muscle which strengthens us. When we lean on the truth, it helps us to stand.
When we trust God with all our hearts, it is our greatest strength because our hearts are the place God’s love resides within us.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 says:
7 A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other. 8 To one person the Spirit gives the ability to give wise advice[b]; to another the same Spirit gives a message of special knowledge.[c] 9 The same Spirit gives great faith to another, and to someone else the one Spirit gives the gift of healing. 10 He gives one person the power to perform miracles, and another the ability to prophesy. He gives someone else the ability to discern whether a message is from the Spirit of God or from another spirit. Still another person is given the ability to speak in unknown languages,[d] while another is given the ability to interpret what is being said. 11 It is the one and only Spirit who distributes all these gifts. He alone decides which gift each person should have.
