Wisdom to trust

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

When have we trusted in someone or something? How often have we been let down? How did we feel when that happened? Angry, deflated or sad?

When we are let down by someone or something, it does leave its mark in some way. How would we respond if and when this occurs? Would our anger fire up, making us retaliate in some way, or would we simply decide to turn our back on whoever or whatever it was that caused the problem?

Alternately, would we remain calm, stay in control and act wisely, by working at fixing up whatever has gone wrong, then having another try?

How often do we let God down? Has God given up on us? No he has not! Is God willing to trust us and let us start all over again? Thankfully, yes He is!

God will never let us down when we turn to Him. He is patient and kind, He loves us beyond our human understanding. He is willing to trust us and He is willing to allow us to try all over again. All we need to do is trust Him! 

Are we wise enough to allow God to take control of our lives?
