When My father was battling cancer and it ultimately took Him Home to God. He was asked, “What one thought would he leave for the family to always remember?”
He said, “Trust in the Lord and Live Life to the Fullest.”
We all look for it? Trust. We live in a world where trust must be earned and seems to be in short supply. But Solomon, the famous king who wrote Proverbs, knew that trust is exactly where we must start:
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.” (Proverbs 3:5)
Surrendering to God begins with our lips and our thoughts. We need more than a commitment to depend on Him; we need to cry out to Him to show that dependence.
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight” (Proverbs 3:6)
When we pray, we admit that His ways are higher than ours. We show that we’re leaving our troubles and burdens and dreams in His capable hands. In fact, the Bible promises that when we reach out to Him in prayer, He hears us:
“Evening, morning, and noon I cry out in distress, and he hears my voice. ” (Psalm 55:17)
