The book of Proverbs 3: 5-6 says ” Trust in the Lord with all thine heart and lean not thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths.” The definition of the Hebrew word for ‘trust’ is ‘to be confident or sure.’  To trust in the Lord means to put total confidence in God who is invisible but real.  This feat can only be accomplished by walking in the spirit and not in the flesh.

To walk in the spirit means to surrender your entire life to the Lord Jesus Christ and allow him to guide your every step and your decisions.  If you surrender to Jesus and really trust Him, then you will never make another mistake or bad decision in your life.  This may seem like a bold statement and you may think that you can prove me wrong, but allow me to explain.

God or the lord Jesus cannot make a mistake.  He is all knowing. He knows everything about your life.  He knew when you were born and he knows when your are going to die.   Anyone who truly surrenders to an all knowing God, trusts Him, and follows His directions will never make a mistake.  The problem is sometimes  when people say they surrender to Jesus, there is still a part of their life that is not totally surrendered.  If you are not totally surrendered to Jesus, you will not always hear the voice of the Holy Spirit guiding you.  Consequently you fall into error and make mistakes.  You must trust Jesus  with all your heart.
