Deciding To Choose Right: Trusting God

Special Teaching by Minister Ginger London

Special Teaching by Minister Ginger London

In the New International Version Proverbs 3:5-7 reads, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord..” It is clearer in the New Living Translation, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths. Do not be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord.”

The duration of your life will involve you in making important decisions. The outcomes will be determined by who you trusted in the decision making process. Did you trust a friend? Did you only trust yourself? or Did you whole-heartedly trust God? God knows what is best for you and who is best for you. His ways are not your ways and His thoughts are not your thoughts. His ways and thoughts are higher and better than yours. He knows what you don’t know and sees what you can’t see. You have to learn about people. God doesn’t, He is the creator of people. You must learn to trust God completely in every choice that you make.

What Should You Do?: Trust God – The word “trust” in the Hebrew language means, “to attach oneself,” “confide in,” “feel safe,” “be confident,” “secure,” and “rely on.” This word expresses the sense of well-being which result from knowing that the “rug won’t be pulled out from under you.” When making choices in life, you should attach yourself to God. Jesus said in John 15:5, “I am the vine, ye are the branches. He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit; for without me ye can do nothing (KJV).”

You must stay connected to your source. Your source is Jesus Christ. Being attached to the true vine gives you a sense of well-being from knowing that the “rug will not be pulled out from under you.”

•You can feel safe (the name of the Lord is a strong tower – Proverbs 18:10).
•You can be confident (Being confident of this, he that began a good work in you will perform it, Philippians 1:6).
•You can confide in God (talk to, Isaiah 1:18)
•You can rely on Him (Psalm 118:8)

Trusting in God keeps you from leaning or supporting yourself! Your heart must have complete confidence in God. You must trust God with every area of your life.

You Must Stay Connected To The True Vine – Jesus Christ.
