“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” (Prov 3:5-6)
We are to trust God with all our hearts and not depend on what we know. We may not always know what lies ahead. At all times, we should include God in everything we do. This way, we give Him a chance to keep us on the right track. Nothing is so serious that God can’t solve it, and nothing is too small that God can’t care about it. It is like the relationship between the Lord Jesus Christ and the universe. He is so big that He fills the entire universe, and He is so small that He lives in our hearts. If we have faith in God, our anxiety and unease can be minimized when things are tough.
Nevertheless the solid foundation of God stands, having this seal: “The Lord knows those who are His,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of Christ depart from iniquity.” (2Ti 2:19)
All believers are God’s workers. The Bible says that we are created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do (Eph 2:10). A good worker will endure hardship, be faithful to the truth, and develop godly character.
“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isa 9:6)
The prophet Isaiah called the coming Christ “the Wonderful Counselor.” All people have pain and struggles. Jesus understands the human soul. He knows what we are going through. We can come to His throne boldly to obtain mercy and to find grace to help in time of need. We can trust Him to listen to our problems and guide us in the right direction. Jesus is the Wonderful Counselor. He brings consolation through the power and love in His own life but also today through the Holy Spirit, who is called the Counselor in John 14:26.
It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man. (Ps 118:8)
The above verse is the center verse of the Bible. If we could center our lives in God and trust Him as David did, we shall live a good life. David was a man who had a special bond with God. Many times, before or during a battle, he would ask God what to do. When we ask someone for advice, what we are really telling them is that we have confidence in them and their thoughts are valuable to us. Every time David asked God for His will, it showed how much he valued God’s thoughts and feelings. It is no wonder that David was called a man after God’s heart.
