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. Proverbs 3:4,5
I am having a problem with this right now, it seems when fear and anger assault my heart its hard to trust the Lord, yet I must. I must trust Him to remove the fear and remove the anger, the key to this, is to be willing to do so. He will direct my path. Right now in the midst of tribulation I am seeking Him and trying to trust Him that He will take care of me. Another verse that I find useful in times like this is Matt. 11: 28-30 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The Lord has in degrees healed the wounds of my soul, and by His perfect love has chased the fear from so many areas of my life. When I am afraid of someone it means that it is another area in which the Lord would like to heal. Oh to enter into His rest, and not be concerned what man can do to me, I would have that. I am seeking, and wanting His perfect love to fill me, to strengthen me, but its hard to love another who has no love for him or herself. Even harder when I don’t have understanding, although I know I must give this all to the Lord, today this moment and lean on Him. I hope you will too.
