A Thought to Ponder
Trust. What is trust? One dictionary describes it as: “Firm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing”
In our everyday lives we put our trust in so many different things including our spouse, vehicle, children and even the small things like the ink pen we pick up and just expect it to do what it is supposed to do. We rely on that type of trust in those and many other things to the point where we take them for granted.
I would wonder if we might be taking our trust in the Lord for granted also. It seems the majority of “Christians” have become so at ease with their belief and worship almost to the point of it becoming a habit instead of a desire. I have heard many preachers tell their congregations to make praying a habit. To come to church every Sunday until it becomes a habit so you will not even have to think about it, that it will just become natural for you to get up on Sunday mornings and not even have to think about it.
To me, this is very dangerous as we allow ourselves to let our “habits” become our thinking instead of our minds. I would propose that we break away from habits and use our minds to purposefully make ourselves direct our thoughts to the Lord and what He would want for us in any given situation. Begin to tlak to the Lord and learn to trust Him in whatever we do.
The Bible tells us in Proverbs 3:5,6 to: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths”. To have trust in God, we need to know Him and continue to grow with Him to better understand who and what He truly is. This cannot be accomplished by allowing our Spiritual walk to become a “habit” instead of a focused attentive lifestyle of concentrating on Him. Habits make for lazFirm reliance on the integrity, ability, or character of a person or thing le and lazy Christians.
We you Trust on God? Or, have you allowed our walk with Him to become
just a habit reserved for Sunday mornings?
