To Trust:

  • Trust in Hebrew literally means “to lean with the whole body” or “to rest one’s full weight” upon something.
  • To trust the Lord is to rest your full weight, everything you’ve got upon Him. Proverbs 29:25 “…Whoever trust in the Lord is kept safe.”

 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”

 

 

  • He wants us to be like the offering on the altar where we give ourselves without reservation to Him!

 

 “In all your ways acknowledge Him”

  • “All” means… in everything that you do, in every detail of your life.
  • “Acknowledge” means …intimate communion… to make a place for Him.
  • He will make our path straight!
  • That is He will make it clear what direction we should go and will help us navigate through whatever life throws at us.
