“If you are in the habit of sitting at Jesus’ feet, then whatever God says to you, do it with confidence and without hesitation” ~ Kay Arthur

“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.”
Proverbs 3:5-6

I’m getting better at the “with confidence and without hesitation”.  My struggle remains in my own addendum to this quote . . . “without looking back!” 
Satan can use my looking back to stir up doubt and regret.

Jesus tells us in John 14:27Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.”  One of the meanings for the Greek word “troubled” is to perplex the mind of one by doubt! 
Is your mind perplexed—even plagued—by doubt?

The first part of that verse in John says “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you.”

He has “cast upon” us His peace and His gift of peace is irrevocable—unlike the worlds which is contingent upon circumstance! 

He is with you wherever you go.
Lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge Him.
He WILL direct your paths!

Think on the things that bring confidence and rest.  Like His constant, caring faithfulness.  He has never left you—abandoned, rejected or forsaken you—and He never will!

We are so close to completely trusting Him!

Rest and wait!

He will bring you to complete dependence upon Him.
It is coming!
Your reward for diligently seeking Him.
And it will be good—so good!

Walk with Him today with joy in your heart, a smile on your face and peace permeating your being!

“This is the day the Lord has made, Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” 
Ps 118:24
