Bible verses trusting lord:do not rely on your own understanding
We always try to figure out things ourselves. We always try to understand things by reasoning. This is a big mistake.
Your life is guided by the Lord. He formed you in your mother’s womb knows your future. He knows what you will do and what your future is going to be. Here I have outlined what God wants us to do as in the bible.
” 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. Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and shun evil.This will bring health to your body and nourishment to your bones.”
If you have been living a christian life, and been attentive to God’s voice, you will be guided by the Holy Spirit to deal with any trouble in life.
To do that you need to follow commandment as outlined in the bible. You need to pray daily, read the bible, and pray in the Holy Spirit.
“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”
And Pharo and Egyptian army tried to follow, the entire army was destroyed as the water ran over them.
This is one instance how God acted on someone’s faith. Without faith, it is impossible to please God.
Isaiah 26: 3-4
“Those of steadfast mind you keep in peace—because they trust in you. Trust in the Lord forever, for in the Lord God you have an everlasting rock”
Our God is an omnipotent, omnipresent god. No need to be overly concerned with any bad situation. When going through with any calamities in life know that your “rock” is there besides you.
“Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? And which of you by being anxious can add a single hour to his span of life?”
If you have a roof over your head, and food to eat, and clothing which does not have to be the most expensive, you will do fine.
God is trying to emphasis here the importance of life over things, luxuries that people today are yearning for. Do not worry when your friend or neighbor drives the latest, BMW When he lives in a palatial house.
As an example birds do not worry about these petty things. They neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns. Still, our heavenly father feeds them. It is the trust that they have in the creator of this world.
Just worrying about future will not add any time to your life span. Here our god is trying to point out the futility of worrying about the future.
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore, we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
Your child is dying of an incurable cancer, and you at his deathbed. But due to yours and prayers of others including your pastor, he pulls through. Why, it is because of the faith in the people who prayed for his cure.
Faith moves mountains. If you really believe that when you pray that God heard your prayers, he will heal whoever.
I remember personally, how I have had similar experiences. Once my sister was bleeding heavily and I was stunned to see the amount of blood she lost. She had fallen on the floor of the bathroom. And I knew she was about to die.
But I prayed for her loudly with my full might hoping for a miracle. Suddenly, she started breathing and bleeding subsided.
The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe.
This has happened to me many times in life. Once when walking towards my car, in the parking, one late night, I was confronted by someone pointing a large knife at me. I did not know what to do as I am not versed in self defense.
All I could do was to shout at him,”Stop, in the name of Jesus” He was startled and suddenly, started running away from me yelling. The word “Jesus” is the most powerful word you can ever use.
With this word, you can chase away, nullify, any strong enemy that would come against you anywhere in the world. There is no need to fight back. Jesus will fight your battles.
There is power in the name of Jesus. When someone in your family is dying of incurable decease, the last desperate plea you can make is just utter the name “Jesus” And God will hear your prayer and even at the last moment rescue that person. It is called a Miracle.
“The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace.”
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand”
Now, I love to fly frequently on vacation, knowing my Lord is omnipresent and watching me having a safe flight.
The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. This is my God, and I will praise him— my father’s God, and I will exalt him!
My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, 2 turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding— 3 indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, 4 and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, 5 then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding. 7 He holds success in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless
If you truly, believe and Trust in him, and follow his commandments,apply them, surely you will be highly successful.
