“Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NLT)

No matter what you are facing and your reaction to it, be it anxiety, fear, depression, bitterness, even PTSD, choose to proclaim that you trust the Lord. Cast these things before the Lord. Speak it out, verbally, loudly. The enemy is spewing his lies over you, so let your words reverse what he is saying. Your words matter! Don’t simply accept the report that is being fed to you! There is much more going on than what we are told, than what our eyes are seeing, or ears are hearing. Choose to trust the Lord over your understanding, your interpretation, and/or your emotions. When you walk in this place of wholehearted trust in the Lord, He promises to make your path straight and clear. In other words, He will show you each step to take as you walk through this crazy season, with its fog of war, and confusing narrative.

Right now, declare that you trust the Lord with all your heart. Lay whatever you’re facing and the emotions that come with it, on the altar. Thank Him for the clarity that He will bring as you seek to do His will. Thank Him that you do not need to trust what you see or hear, but that He is trustworthy to bring clarity in the way forward!
