Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song." (Isaiah 12:2) Christianity is trusting Christ, not self. Most of us spend our lives trying to find God, reach God, & please God through our own efforts. But perfect trust is resting all of our weight on something other than ourselves. Kind of like when you use crutches to hold yourself up when you sprain your ankle . . . you lean on them for strength. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight." Strength comes from proper perspective -- from choosing to fully trust, pray, & praise. Our circumstances may not change, but in the process, we change!
