"Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
Some things in life are optional, some are not. In hoping to serve the Lord, many people have very different ideas on what will please the Lord. There are those who have difficulty in figuring out Who He is. Others have their outlook diminished by opinions of religious elders who fill their minds with ecclesiastical, earthbound nonsense that confuses, distorts and blinds. And, unfortunately, there are those who have been lied to by Satan and have an hatred for their Creator that not even they cannot explain.
The God of the Bible; the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, who sent His Son Yeshua of Nazareth, the Messiah, into this World to die for our sins, is looking for one thing from us: Trust.
God wants us to sell out in our trusting. He wants us to turn from all this Earth has shown us and to trust Him in everything. His reality, Who He is, is actually more real than whatever it is that we can think, see, feel or understand. He promises us that we will understand His ways more and more when we surrender what we think to what He has said. His Word, the Bible is supernatural.
Do you find this challenging to your senses? You should. We all are challenged every day by this truth of our need to trust in Him, Who we cannot see with our naked eyes. When we learn to walk in this realm we will finally understand and rest in the fact that there is this unseen hand guiding our life. He opens our eyes to a much larger universe than the one we studied in school, learning and reading the books of men.
When we speak of Him something happens too. We cement, or He cements, His truths in our spirit and we change. We see life differently and there is no going back to the mundane existence we once knew. We realize that the more of our heart we give to Him that He is able to deepen our trust in Him and His promises are faithful, true and eternal. It has been said that 'He is no fool who gives up something he cannot keep in order to gain something he cannot lose'. Amen. Thank You Adonai.
