Inspiration · Trust

inspiration to explore…

In the Encouragement Planner
where it said… note to self…
I wrote…
LEAN on HIM!

Today… I followed up with what that means…
where in His Word… it talks about leaning…

What I discovered is interesting…
because lean isn’t used when referring to God…
lean is used when trusting in the things of the world…

For example…

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
Proverbs 3:5 ESV
The Hebrew translated as lean means…
to lean on… trust in… support oneself…
(Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon)
A different word than that translated as trust… in the same verse…
The Hebrew there means… 
to trust… trust in… have confidence in… 
to feel safe… be careless…
(Enhanced Strong’s Lexicon)
The word lean means to trust in for support…
but when it comes to God… He is completely worthy of all confidence…
no need just to lean… He can be fully trusted…
Over the next few days… I sense…
inspiration to explore the verses I found…
and what it means to… LEAN on HIM!
