Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.

It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones.

Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:

So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.

My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of his correction:

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.

Proverbs 3: 5-12 — King James Version

In the video accompanying this article viewers will see a beautiful 4 year old girl named Lea placing complete trust in her earthly father — this is how we ought to trust our heavenly Father, and the joy we ought to have in His company, in His complete trust to provide for us, keep us, and deliver us from harm or evil.

We are instructed to be converted and in child-like humility — not to be confused or improperly discerned as being childish, or foolish, but in child-like obedience, in open humility and joy and trust, all the Spirit of God our Father to CONVERT our wicked adult hearts and minds towards placing ALL OUR TRUST AND HOPE in Him. And if we do not do this? Or if we adopt the worldly view towards a true believer in God our Father? Jesus the Lord tells of the consequences:

At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me. But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.”

Matthew 18: 1-6 — King James Version

 

Beautiful little 4 year old Lea placing unconditional trust in her father, and the boundless joy it brings:

Little Lea not only placed her complete trust in her father, no apprehension, no excuses, no preoccupation elsewhere, no fear — but she did so eyes wide open and joyful.

I have heard and read the lack of discernment among professed believers that they have “blind faith” in God, and I have heard this same term used by non-believers as to why they can’t repent of their sins and give themselves to the service of the Lord.

True faith in God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the inerrant word of God is the EXACT OPPOSITE of blind faith — it is faith eyes wide open. Seeing, knowing, embracing, aware, turning our heads towards the light, towards our Father, our eyes, our heart ever and always open and willing to do what our heavenly Father does in our lives.

If He takes us on a barrel roll and we don’t have our feet on the ground — do not fear. Rejoice in all things always. Rejoice and be joyful and happy and trusting in our heavenly Father as little Lea was and is in her earthly father.

None of us has an excuse.

Faith and trust is not on our terms. Then it no longer is trust and faith and becomes something totally different.

May each of us find the faith and trust in God our Father, eyes wide open, in complete joy in the moment as God gives us — as beautiful little Lea had in her earthly father in the enclosed video.

[It is] better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.

Psalm 118:8

 

Behold, God [is] my salvation; I will trust, and not be afraid: for the LORD JEHOVAH [is] my strength and [my] song; he also is become my salvation.

Isaiah 2:12

 

Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

James 4:7

 

The LORD [is] on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me?

Psalm 118:6

 

Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5

 

John 15
