Proverbs 3:5-Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding.
TRUST= batach in the greek and means trust, confidence, faith.
We live in a world where trust must be earned and seems to be in short supply because trust in man is temporary and short lived. Man promises today and forgets tomorrow about his or her promises they made to us today.
Trust! Where have you placed yours on today? If not in God, what will you do at the time in your life when the sudden chaos in your life appears to be the worst moment of your life?
At the intersection of tragedy or crisis where or whom will you turn to? Will you draw nigh to God in faith or will you be driven away by anger and doubt and blame God?
Scripture declares that there is a time and a season for everything under heaven. The season and time in which we are living NOW is the time for "FAITH' in God to be activated in our lives like never before

Jesus says "My peace" I give unto you, not as the world gives. God alones give us peace and rest in the midst of life's storms.
Believe it or not, but the world and all it's affairs is wrecking havoc on the minds of mankind everywhere and is causing many to loose faith in God. But, the call today from the God of the universe to mankind everywhere is the command to "PUT OUR TRUST IN HIM" for He alone is able to do EVERYTHING He says concerning you and I.
How is God going to fulfill His promises written in His Word concerning us in a world that seems to have gone crazy? It is not for us to know or figure out for our thoughts are not His. This is where our "TRUST" and faith in God has to begin to be activated.
Many minds, including some believers, are cluttered with so many things that are temporary and of little importance to their now and their eternal destination, but yet that clutter has taken the forefront of their minds.
The call of the Christian is to have the sort of trust that makes us put our entire lives into God's hands.
Will it be easy? Not at all, but we must daily work toward trusting God each day more than we did the day before.
As humans we want to be in control of all the affairs of our lives. It is in our nature to want to be independent of God and live our lives apart from God and His command, but in spite of our desire for self control, God is calling us from that mind set on today. He is calling us to lean not unto our own understanding but in all of our ways, to acknowledge Him and to put our faith and trust in Him alone.
Trusting God means that we are daily handing over the keys of our lives to Him for we know that He alone is able to lead, guide and direct our paths.
Many people have and are still putting their trust in everything and everyone except God, but we are reminded of this as believers in Psalm 20:7 Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.
It is when we trust God that we show that our faith in Him is real.
Trusting God can and may be rough for many, especially when things in our lives are contrary to the Word of God, but this is the time when we need to dig our minds deep down in the word and be not removed, regardless of what our eyes may see.
God is calling us to complete 'TRUST" even in those hard and painful places in our lives. Yes, letting go of self control and giving it over can be tough for many and scary for others, but this I what God is calling us to do.
Each and every day of our lives, we must consciously lay aside our own plans and expectations and surrender to God's plans for our lives for in His Word , God Himself declares that He knows the plans He has for us. Not to harm us, but to prosper us and give us a hope and a future with Him.
Proverbs 3:7 -Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil.”
In the midst of whatever you may be dealing with on today that may be painful and unpleasant, will you put your trust in God?
Where you may lack in your faith on today, pray and ask God to move you from a place of doubting Him to a place of trusting Him no matter what.
The call to all of us today is to "TRUST" GOD in spite of what our lot may be on today.
In these spiritually dark days in which we are living, "TRUSTING GOD" can NO LONGER be an option for you. IT MUST BECOME A NECESSITY!
TRUST in God is a an attitude of mind, will and soul that causes us to realize our own need for God.
Even in an ever changing world, our God remains the same. Trust Him today people of God!
