Verse of the Day: Proverbs 3:5-6
“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.” – Proverbs 3:5-6
This is a crucial verse to practice on a moment-by-moment basis. The question it brings up is, do you trust in God regarding everything? And if you say yes, the next question is, are there times when you revert to trusting yourself or anything else besides God?
God knows all things, understands all situations, knows the end from the beginning, has only our best in mind. He loves us with an everlasting love, He never leaves our side, in fact, as Christians he is in us by way of the Holy Spirit. He is everywhere throughout the entire universe at once, so there is no place we can go where God is absent. Moreover, He can speak and interact with everyone and everything at the same time. Can you say the same about anyone or anything else? I cannot, and I would guess you cannot either.
This is the reason Solomon said that we must trust God with our whole heart and not trust in ours or any other’s judgement or advise. If we do, then He will guide and lead us where He knows it is best for us and others. To trust another is not wisdom and shows a lack of knowledge of the reality of God and His great and eternal love.
