Proverbs 3:5,6- “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.”

 

Are you worried? Frustrated? Agitated?

You know our Heavenly Father will take care of you.

But, do you find it hard to trust?

Here’s an idea I heard a few days ago on my local Christian radio station. It is so simple and practical that it bears repeating.’’

Here is what a caller suggested doing:

At the top of a paper, write this heading: Things I Am Fearful of and/or Worried About.

Now, list them out. As many as you can think of…

When your list is complete, go back to the top of the page and erase the heading.

Replace it with these words: Things I Can Trust God With.

Then thank God for being in control of each and every situation.

Who’s Driving?

300G Driver's Console

Proverbs 3:5- “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.”

 

Do you put God in the driver’s seat, but then act as a backseat driver?

This is a question someone asked on Christian radio a few weeks ago—and it is still in my thoughts—nagging at me, prodding me to answer the question for myself.

If you are like me, we play backseat driver more often than we’d like to admit. 

Sometimes it amounts to praying about something and, rather than waiting on God, we take things into our own hands.

Other times, it is coming up with what we think is a good idea and running with it, instead of even asking His direction in the first place. It may seem like a Godly thing to do—or even worthy because in our mind it is an act of service for God—so we forge ahead without prayerful consideration.

I’m sure you can come up with many examples of backseat driving.

The point is: God wants to lead us. But, before He can do that, we must share our needs and ask Him for direction.

Then, comes the hard part: Waiting for the answer and/or resisting the urge to do it our way.

Can you just hear Him say, “Who’s driving? You or Me?”

If we would only learn to let Him have the wheel, we could relax in the backseat—even enjoy the scenery as we look out the window. 

We can trust Him to get us where we’re going.

After all, He knows the road ahead.
