Trust in the Lord with All Your Heart

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

and do not lean on your own understanding.

In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He will make your paths straight.

Do not be wise in your own eyes;

Fear the Lord and turn away from evil.

Proverbs 3:5-7

So many people trust in themselves instead of trusting in the Lord.  They think they have gained all the knowledge that they need and are smarted than anyone else.  They get prideful and think that they are the be all and end all of everything.

It’s easy to get that way.  Things start going right.  You start getting an abundance of blessings and you start forgetting to thank God for them.  You start gaining knowledge and forget to ask the Lord how to use that knowledge.  Great things start to happen and you think that you are the reason for them happening.  I know…I’ve been there.  Have you?  It’s not to late to change.  Give you life over to God.   Ask Him for help in changing your life.  He’ll show you what to do.

Till next time,

  1. most of the time we just rely on our own mind. but when the troubles come that is the time we grasp on His power. We should seek God guidance before anything else.

  2. I am always inspired by Proverbs… and this particular one is really good. Thanks! For me, life is so much less stressful when I remember to appreciate the blessings God has provided for me. And to always quiet myself each day for a bit … so I can hear that whisper of his guidance. Thanks again for this quiet moment JT… I appreciate it.
