“Trust in the LORD with all your heart.” – Proverbs 3:5a
To help us remember today’s key verse, let’s split the group in two and do the following a few times:
Every time I point to the first group, you shout, “TRUST IN THE LORD!”
Every time I point to the second group, you shout, “WITH ALL YOUR HEART!”
Now, let’s all shout it together: “TRUST IN THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART!”
As a coach, one of my jobs is to keep you safe and always do what’s best for you and the team. Because of that, I want you to trust me and the decisions I make.
I’m not perfect and sometimes I can make mistakes. The same is true for anyone in authority over you, but it’s still good to trust your coaches, your parents, your teachers, and your spiritual leaders.
Here’s the good news: even when people make mistakes or let you down, you can always trust God! Do you know why you can trust God?
First of all, God is your protector! Let’s read a verse about this.
“But when I am afraid,
I will put my trust in you.’” – Psalm 56:3
Secondly, God always wants what is best for you! Psalm 119:114 says,
“You are my refuge and my shield;
your word is my source of hope.”
There’s nothing better than knowing that the all-powerful Creator of the universe cares about you. He wants to protect you and wants what it best for you!
That’s why you can trust God with everything in your life
Let’s listen as we close in prayer today:
“Dear God, thank You for protecting me and giving me what is best for my life. Help me trust You more and more every day. Amen.”
