Trust in the Lord with all your heart

trust in the lord

Proverbs 3:4-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding..." You and I cannot understand the scope and scale of all that is around us, "But in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your paths straight." Trusting Him will change your life and your destiny! If you're following Him and you're struggling away from Jesus, I want to challenge you to struggle and walk toward Jesus because He will change your destiny.  That's the miracle of God's love given in Jesus!

You see the goal of God is maturity - A faith that is not trapped in broken emotions locked in one moment of time. A faith that leans on the infinite glory of Jesus and Jesus Christ alone, that's God's goal for your life that you trust in Jesus alone! That the issue of your life is not your spouse, it is not your child, not your finances or your health or your past, it is not the fear of your future, the issue of your life is Jesus! Turning to Him, He becomes your foundation, He becomes your trust and though you struggle, you struggle forward in faith successfully - that is the heart of trusting!

When you make Jesus - and not your pain - the issue, something happens in the presence of the glory of God and the imagination of the restoration! Our pain begins to shrink down to the size of a marble and it is not our pain that is so big and overwhelming - it is our savior! The hope of Jesus will change your life! It will give you new perspective and give you hope.  And you will be able to struggle through just as Jesus did on the cross, on to the resurrection and on to glory! -Dr. Drew Shofner

Only broken people find Jesus.

Real salvation begins with brokenness and it results in profound yielded living; we are broken to begin and yielded to the end. To be a believer in Jesus Christ is to realize that it's His thoughts that count and not ours. (Isaiah 55:8)

Real believers seek the thoughts of God in the detail of their living and they yield what they think to what God thinks. The Holy Spirit will guide every true believer into what is right and holy, but it all begins with brokenness.

Are you broken? Did you begin broken? If you didn't begin broken in your spiritual journey, I want to invite you today to begin broken and to get a new operating system and to begin living your life yielded to Jesus. It's not easy, it's not instant, it's not perfect, but it is such a great life! -Dr. Drew Shofner
