He that handleth a matter wisely shall find good: and whoso trusteth in the LORD, happy is he.
Our anchored Scripture tells us that whoever trusts in God in all things is the happiest. The proper way to handle a matter wisely is to trust in the Lord, for he who trusts in the Lord has a degree of wisdom granted by inspiration. Happy is he now, and happier shall he be above. Having God’s wisdom to guide our thoughts and steps through life will allow us to conquer the world. Trusting in the Lord brings blessing and leads to the life of joy. Only those that trust in God are entitled to triumph over the circumstances of life without sweat and sorrow. Therefore, our happiness is conditional and embedded in our confidence in the Lord. Proverbs 22:19-20 says, “That thy trust may be in the LORD, I have made known to thee this day, even to thee. Have not I written to thee excellent things in counsels and knowledge,” God is always in the hearts of those who genuinely trust Him, and they always carry within them a God-revering heart, a God-loving heart.
Trusting God is an exercise of faith, looking at God’s goodness, power, and promises above our fears and discouragements, confusing doubts, and our immediate situation. Trusting God is looking to God alone and not at the circumstances, pressures of life, or the medical doctor’s report. In other words, we are not perturbed by the raging sea, for God’s unchanging love, including His Almightiness, is always present. He is worthy of being trusted today, tomorrow, and forever. Our God is stable and dependable, and He will never change. It takes trust and diligence to please God. It takes confidence and faith in His promises to appropriate His blessings, with a firm and persistent resolve to abide in His will. In Daniel chapter 6, the three Hebrew boys chose to trust in God; the result was mind-blowing! The fire that did not affect them was the same that burnt their adversaries to ashes; for as long as our defense is unshakable, our defeat is not possible. When we trust God, He watches and fights on our behalf, and the battles of life cannot consume us. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, “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.” When we trust our lives to Him, we have an assurance that He is willing and able to take us all the way home. When we put all in His care, we can rest assured that we are safe in His Hands and our future is secure in Him.
Beloved, your decision to serve God and fully trust Him is not a wasted effort. It will produce much more than you expect, for your expectations shall manifest. The tears may still come, you may feel the pressure, and so will the temptations, but in the midst of all, God’s Grace, Peace, and Joy are there for you. The enemy will attack the foundation of your trust in God by attacking your heart with a fiery arrow of doubt. However, maintain your wholehearted confidence in God. Do not quit trusting God. Hold on just a little while, for God will meet you at the very point of your need and give you victory. There is a reason for going through what you are experiencing now. Trust God, for He will see you through. Today, take Him at His Word, knowing that He has never failed and will never fail you when you trust Him. He is our rock and salvation, so be patient and meditate on His goodness and love, including His promise that He will never leave or forsake you. Rest in His power, and you will not be scared by any situation. You will not try to figure out the next step because you have entrusted your life and destiny into His safe and loving Hands. Remain in Him, and He will help you fight against principalities, powers, and spiritual forces of wickedness. He will not allow you to be defeated in battle because He will defend, protect, deliver you, and subdue your enemies. Nothing limits God. What He says is done, what He promises is carried out, and what He desires is accomplished. Remember, trusting in God in all things brings you happiness.
O Lord, thank You for Your Word; help me trust in You always in Jesus’ Name.
