Trust in the Lord

The Word of God instructs us to "trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding" (Proverbs 3:5). It takes time, experience, and faith before we learn to trust in the Lord, but it takes even more to trust when we don't understand. The Lord will bring us through situations so that we will grow to trust the Lord, even when we don't understand.

Job had to learn the lesson of trusting the Lord. Job did not know why he was going through his trial. Job thought it was God afflicting him when it was the devil. Job trusted the Lord enough that he said, "Though he slay me, yet will I trust him..." (Job 13:15).

When the Lord wants to use us, things will happen that we don't understand, but we must trust the Lord, even though we don't understand it. The disciples didn't understand the Red Sea and the wilderness; Abraham didn't understand why he had to let Ishmael go; but all of these people trusted the Lord and didn't lean on their own understanding.

The Bible lets us know that the Lord doesn't do things the way we think. God chooses the foolish things to confound the wise. He chooses the weak things to confound the mighty. He uses base things and things which don't exist to bring to nothing the things that are, that no flesh should glory in God’s presence (I Cor 1:27-29).

Let's just learn to trust the Lord and not to lean on our own understanding.
