Trusting God's Call

Trusting God's Call


Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)

Trust in theĀ Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;

As women of faith, we often find ourselves at crossroads where God’s call may lead us down a path we didn’t anticipate. It’s in these moments that our faith is truly tested and deepened. We may be asked to embrace God’s plan, even if it doesn’t align with our own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5 beautifully encapsulates the essence of embracing God’s call with obedient trust: “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

The call of God may not always align with our own understanding or expectations. It might take us out of our comfort zone, challenge our preconceived notions, or ask us to embark on a journey we never imagined. However, the key is to trust Him with all our hearts.

Obedient trust involves surrendering our own limited perspective and recognizing that God’s ways are higher than our ways. It’s about submitting to His will, even when we can’t see the full picture. In these moments, our faith shines most brightly, and we discover the profound beauty of leaning on God’s understanding rather than our own.

As women of faith, we are often tasked with various roles and responsibilities. God’s call might lead us to serve our families, communities, or ministries in ways we didn’t anticipate. These moments are opportunities for us to submit to His leading and trust His wisdom, even when our own understanding may be limited.

In those times when God’s call feels uncertain or unfamiliar, remember that His promise is to make your path straight. When you trust Him with all your heart and submit to His will, He guides you on a purposeful journey. Embracing His call and being obedient, even when it challenges your own understanding, leads to a life that is filled with His grace and blessings.


Can you identify specific areas in your life where you’ve felt God’s call but hesitated due to misaligned expectations or uncertainties? How can you trust Him with all your heart and lean on His understanding in these situations?

In what ways can you actively practice obedient trust in your daily life, even when God’s call challenges your own understanding or plans? How can you incorporate a deeper reliance on His wisdom and guidance as you embrace His call and purpose for you?
