Sometimes we trust God for things like a new job, a relationship, a house, a promotion, etc. But this isn’t always the case. What do we do when we receive the things we trust God for? We get promoted, we move into the new house, now what? Do we stop trusting God until the next need comes up in our lives? No. Absolutely not. In the “in between times” when there isn’t an obvious need we still trust God.
In Second Corinthians chapter five it says that we’re called to walk by faith and not by sight. The word “walk” means our daily manner of living, or proof of ability. That means we should live constantly trusting God. It also means that our lives should prove the ability (or power) of God.
Some of the main things we should trust God for daily are His wisdom, favor, and guidance for that particular day. God has a plan for every single day of our lives, and if we only know how to trust Him for the “big things” we’ll miss it. His wisdom we’ll show us how to navigate our relationship with our spouse, how to act in love and not in anger. His favor will open doors for us. His guidance will open our eyes to all the opportunities we have to share His love with lost people. However, we have to trust Him.
Jeremiah 10:23 says “O Lord, I know that [the determination of] the way of a man is not in himself; it is not in man [even in a strong man or in a man at his best] to direct his [own] steps.” Even when we’re at our strongest we aren’t able to lead ourselves, we aren’t able to see all the good things that God has set up for us. This is why every day of our lives should be lived in faith, so we’ll fulfill His plan for us.
