Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Psalm 37:3
This word “trust” is an interesting word. Its root is from the word that means “to lie face down on the ground.”
The idea is that a person is totally helpless. He has been cast down and has nothing to stand upon. The pins have been pulled from underneath him. He has no visible means of support.
That’s the place God wants to bring us to—where we have no visible means of support, and all we have is God.
In fact, did you know God will sometimes knock your feet out from under you so you might learn to trust Him? At that point, faith is no longer an option or a luxury; it’s a necessity. To the world your situation looks hopeless, but that’s right where God wants to show Himself powerful in your life.
Is there an area in your life today for which you must trust God completely? Perhaps you need some “face time”. . .face down on the ground before the Lord. Bring that issue before Him in total surrender.
