Thoughts to Live By

Trust and Pray

“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 3:5,6

One can truly trust in the Lord and be confident and secure in whatever He says. He will never disappoint or let us down in any way or at any point.  When we trust Him with all of our hearts, even though circumstances may seem insurmountable, He has His best in store for us.  He is our best friend, who will guide us down the straight and right path.

Psalm 109:4, “But I give myself unto prayer.”

The best thing we can do when we are under attack or find ourselves heading toward discouragement is to lift our hearts in prayer.  Finding a quiet time, alone with Jesus, and pouring our hearts out to Him in conversation are essential for the believer to walk with Him.  We must give ourselves wholly to prayer and watch His glorious power work in our lives and in those for whom we pray.
