Trust is a funny thing. In order to gain trust one must put their entire confidence in what they believe, and hold fast to it with their entire strength. One cannot simply trust, if he has lost his confidence, and his strenght has failed him.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding;  in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.”

Proverbs 3:5-6

In life we oftentimes lean on our own understanding, trying to figure things out, rely on our own strength, when God desires that we let go, and simply trust him. Like a little child who crosses the street holding fast to his mother, he wants us to let go of our fear, and insecurity, and simple trust him to lead the way.

No matter what, the mother will protect her child, and hold him close to her heart. No matter what she will shield him from harm. How much more our heavently father, who cares for us, and knows all about us?!

I pray you have enjoyed this simple insight and ask God into your heart, where you can start on gaining that trust, and develop that strength. In the meantime check out my Study on the Chapter, and be blessed as a result.
