Proverbs 3:5 KJV
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
Some trust in their chariots, cars, property, skills, gifts, strength and technology. All these can fail at anytime. The best footballer can have a bad game just as the best doctor can make the deadliest mistake. Self confidence is important however it shouldn’t be at the detriment of our trust in God.
Don’t deceive yourself by portraying to be depending on God when in actual sense your confidence is locked up in a man. Self induced testimonies are not a prove of God’s faithfulness.
To trust is to have assurance or total reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something.
When your understanding increases, Trust Him.
When your barns are breaking….Trust Him. Irrespective of your state, trust in God.
Your confidence should be placed in God alone.
Trust in His faithfulness, love, kindness, judgment and His person.

Thank you father for your word today.
I know you are the solid rock in whom I put my trust. I know you would keep me in perfect peace because my mind is fixed on you. So help me God.
F: Solomon Rehoboth
