Prayer Journey Day 1- Trust
Proverbs 3:5-6 says: “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.”
Trust is a key factor in our relationship with the Lord. To trust in the Lord with all our heart, we must wholly rely upon God’s promises, wisdom, power, and love to help us in every circumstance. Man’s understanding is subject to error. God, on the other hand, sees and understands all. He is the One we can lean on and trust. And if there was ever a time in history to put our trust in Him, this would be it. What better starting place for this focused time of prayer? In this day and time, trust does not come easily. But we have an Almighty, sovereign Lord who can be trusted. How beautiful to be able to entrust ourselves to Him; to lean on Him, to share the deepest cries of our hearts with the God who created us, and knows us intimately, and is intimately acquainted with every fiber of our being. Take time to pour out your heart to Him.
Prayer Prompt: TRUST
- Consider the things in your life right now that you find hardest to hand over to God. It could be the outcome of the coronavirus, your health, an unanswered prayer, a deferred longing, a broken relationship, a prodigal child, desire for a spouse or a child, a struggling marriage, financial hardships, etc.
- Ask God to reveal where you may have stopped believing that He will take care of you, a place you have not been willing to trust Him completely.
- When you feel like you have heard from Him, write out whatever your worry, fear, concern, or area of trust you are struggling with on a small piece of paper. Then throw it in the garbage or shred it to represent putting your complete TRUST in God.
- Choose to trust God completely with this area and pray to let it go.
NOTE: When you pray, lean not to your own understanding. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. With everything that is within you, put your trust in Him, and He will direct your path. Ask Him to help you trust Him with them.
