GO.

Trust is hard.

It’s as simple as that.

It’s a hard, hard thing to trust in the Lord.

But why?

It’s not a question of whether or not He is trustworthy. As believers, we know that He is.

Then why is it so hard to trust?

For me, it’s a daily fight.

[Tweet “Trust is battlefield of the mind.”]

Even when we long to lean with full confidence into the Lord’s goodness and provision, we’re assaulted every hour with an onslaught of enemies — outward and inward.

We hear the song of the snake, like Kaa in The Jungle Book, and we’re mesmerized by his hypnotic eyes as he wraps his lies around us and sings, “Trust in me, trust in me …”

We fight the internal voices of fear and doubt when the rubber hits the road.

The solution?

We need to saturate ourselves with the Word.

Let the Word win.

When it’s a battle of voices, we need to make sure God’s is the loudest and strongest in our minds.

Let’s commit ourselves to memorizing key passages of Scripture that will help us when we feel ourselves getting pulled away from trust:

 

[Tweet “”Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.” Ps. 20:7″]

[Tweet “”Trust in the LORD forever, for the LORD, the LORD himself, is the Rock eternal.” Isaiah 26:4″]

[Tweet “”It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.” Psalm 118:8″]

[Tweet “”Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding…” Proverbs 3:5″]

 

STOP.
