"Foolish" Trust

We give credit to human wisdom when we should give credit to the divine guidance of God being exhibited through child-like people who were "foolish" enough to trust God's wisdom and His supernatural equipment. -Oswald Chambers

Take this moment to ask God who you truly put your trust in. If you had to choose between trusting a really "smart" and logical person or trusting God, who would you really choose? Our minds know what the answer should be, but what do our hearts really do?

Trust is an essential aspect to any kind of relationship. A daughter trusts her Daddy to catch her. Parents trust (or should) trust their teenage son to make good choices. Students trust their teachers to teach well. Employers trust their employees to do their work. Wives trust their husbands to love and protect them. Husbands trust their wives to respect and support them.

You can't have much of a relationship with out trust. Or if you do have any kind of relationship, it's certainly not going to grow if you don't learn to trust more.

See what I'm getting at here? We absolutely need to trust in the Lord with ALL our hearts and never, ever count only on our own understanding of things. In every single thing we do, we need to seek His ways, acknowledge His perfect wisdom and understanding, and know that WHEN we do this, He WILL make our paths straight--He will guide us with perfect leadership.

And take comfort that this isn't something you just need to work harder at on your own. Jesus would LOVE to help you out on this. Ask Him right now and every day from here on out that He teaches you to trust Him more. But be prepared! This is opening up the door for Jesus to bring things into your life that may not make much sense at first. But He's teaching you to acknowledge HIM in it, not other "smart & logical" people.

Ask God to make you "foolish" enough to trust His wisdom and His supernatural equipment. Ask Him to give you child-like faith.

Here's a prayer-song about trust to get you started. :)
