“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths” (Prov. 3:5).

Solomon defines and exemplifies what he meant by trusting in the Lord. First, he alludes to the “Shema”—also known as the Jewish central prayer. This prayer should be the starting point for all believers. “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength (Deut. 6:4–5).

Solomon describes three specific pillars of trust. Believers know they trust the Lord when they honor Him with their possessions (Prov. 3:9). Trust is also built when believers submit to God’s corrections (Prov. 3:11). And finally, believers who trust the Lord use their time to bless others (Prov. 3:27).

Solomon assures Christians that trusting God will prolong one’s life and bring prosperity (Prov. 3:2). Would you trust God today? Trust that He will fill your barns and overflow them. Trust that your vats will brim over as you honor God with your means. Trust that the Lord will use your offerings today to meet the needs of this congregation. Trusting God begins with knowing, and knowing has evidence.

“Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” (Ps. 34:8).
