“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
Some of you may ask, “So what does it mean to trust the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding?” The answer is, we are to completely trust God with all that is in us, that we cast down any of our own strength down, furthermore, give all of the strength and experiences we possess, both physically and mentally, to the will of the Holy Spirit. Thus allowing Father God to fulfill his will through us for His Glory. Where any circumstance that we may be going through, will look as a miracle and no one will ever say that we came out successful, but “Only by the strength of God, this is a miracle”! We do not seek our own gain but desire God to receive all the glory. For the Lamb deserves the Glory! We get to enjoy what GOD does for himself
Trust can be defined in many ways, but I would love to show you an example from the Business Dictionary; as Trust is defined as;
Legal entity created by a party (the trustor) through which a second party (the trustee) holds the right to manage the trustor’s assets or property for the benefit of a third party (the beneficiary). The four main types of trusts are: (1) Living: trust created by the trustor while he or she is alive. (2) Testamentary: trust established through a will and which comes into effect (is created) when the trustor dies. (3) Revocable: trust that can be modified or terminated by the trustor after its creation. (4) Irrevocable: trust that cannot be modified or terminated by the trustor after its creation.
Property interest held by a party (the trustee) for the benefit of another (the beneficiary).
Some of the usage example would be:
If you are wondering how she is able to travel so much and work so little at such a young age, it is because her parents set up a trust that provides for most of her living expenses.
The workers put their trust in the manager, relying on him to make decisions, knowing they would have to follow him and the orders he gave.
If you have a sizeable amount of money that you wish to leave a beneficiary after your death, it would be beneficial to place the monies into a testamentary trust fund that is payable upon execution of your established will.
So with the understanding from the given examples, you may have a better grasp on our surrender to him, all we are doing is entrusting him to manage our assets and property for not only our benefit, which is a byproduct, but the benefit of the Kingdom and the King.
We do not need to lean on our own understanding or to use our logic to figure things out. If Father God is not only the center of our lives, but is our life, then we live for Him alone. And if we are in Him and He is in us, then likewise, we believe that we can trust Him with all our hearts. The results of entrusting our life in to Him would be miraculous mountains cast in to the seas. We would be walking epistles of God’s Word in us. Written testimonies of the Power of God! Our paths set straight! All Glory To Him!
