Lean!!

In Young Adults service last night, I opened w this song and went into talking about Trusting Jesus! Its such a basic truth but often times do we truly fully trust Him? When we are in the deep waters of life, do we trust that He is at work and that He has the best plan despite what we see in front of us taking place in the physical rhelm that may be very painful and heartbreaking even. Proverbs 3:5-6 says “Trust in the Lord with all your heart…lean not onto our own understanding but in all thy acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. ” So God tells us here to not lean on us but to fully Trust Him. As the song below says “You’re asking me to lean” …..we need to lean the other way though…not on us and what we think is best but Lean on Him! Have you ever just prayed the prayer “Jesus help me believe” bc lately that’s where I’ve been. In the midst of difficult circumstances sadly we as human do get discouraged but we don’t have to stay there. Also, read from Psalms 62:1-2, 5-8…I love verse 8 were it says “Trust Him at ALL times, ye people, Pour out your heart before Him: God is a refuge for us.” So He is our safe place and You know what? He’s not afraid of our emotions and feelings. He created them!! What we do need to understand though is sometimes we can get caught up with them and live by them….that’s not what God intended them for. He wants us to pour out our heart to Him fully trusting that He will take care of all things concerning us. Sure He already knows all of our hearts, but He wants to hear it from us…..Seasons come and they go …they are ever changing but our God is not! He’s the same yesterday, today, and forever …so we can place our full confidence in Him! So in these times it seems like we have the smallest faith….God says even if we have faith the size of a mustard seed…Mountains can be moved in His name. These trials that we all go through may be different, but through them God is teaching us to Trust Him in full surrender mode and to lean on Him!!!! I’m reminded of the old hymnal “Learning to Lean” …love that song and the deep truth in it. Yep, that’s exactly where I’m finding myself lately….learning to lean on Jesus! πŸ™πŸ™Œβ™₯
