Good morning! Many believers treasure this command, some calling this their life verse. And for good reason! Yet this is a daunting command: trust the Lord with all your heart? If that’s the case, this means there must be no room given in our hearts for any other… anything.
The following verse calls for us to not lean on our own understanding. Nhat Hanh once said, “Most of your suffering comes from the lack of understanding yourself and others.” There’s a ring of truth to this, although Scripture tells us that we have a lack of understanding of all around us because of our brokenness due to our desire to stray from God’s design.
By the power of the Spirit, we are called to acknowledge him in all our ways–to take every thought captive to Christ (see 2 Corinthians 10:4-5). The Spirit and the Word direct us in the paths Christ calls us to take. Do you trust Him to take you where you need to be? If not, why not?
