Humbly Trusting

2 Samuel 15:25-26 25 Then the king said to Zadok, “Take the ark of God back into the city. If I find favor in the Lord’s eyes, he will bring me back and let me see it and his dwelling place again. 26 But if he says, ‘I am not pleased with you,’ then I am ready; let him do to me whatever seems good to him (NIV)

David had a lot of ups and downs in his obedience to God but he humbly trusted his life to God.  He was not going to tell God what to do.  We must ask ourselves if we are truly trusting God with our lives, our future and our plans.  Even the public prayers I hear are full of petitions asking God to do this or that.  David’s attitude reminds me of Job saying, “Though He slay me yet I will trust Him.”  We must each ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to us our trust level of God.  The tacking on at the end of our prayers, “If it be Thy will.” Must mean much more than just a phrase.  We shouldn’t say it if we don’t really mean whatever God’s will is for our lives, our plans, our next day is what we truly want even if it goes against our finite, logical, materialistic minds and fleshly desires.  Oh that we will always be pleasing to God, really desiring to do His will and be used by Him however He pleases.
