"5Trust in the Lordwith all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your pathsstraight."
Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV
The instruction in this verse sounds easy enough...trust God with my whole heart and don't try to figure it out...submit to God and He will lead me...right! Sounding easy and being easy...that's 2 totally different things. It's not always easy to trust God with my WHOLE heart. Why? Because I am human. And the world teaches us to trust ME and no one else. Let me just tell you...because I am a flawed human being, I am not trustworthy! What my mind says is so, may not be so. I have to look to God! I can't trust me...I can't lean on my understanding of things. I have to trust God...I have to listen to His leading and do my best to follow after His instruction! The last part of verse 6 is a promise! God promises that He will make our way straight when we do what he instructs us to do. Basically these verses are another of the many "if-then" instructions we find in the Word of God! IF we will trust God with all we are and IF we will not lean on ME and IF we will submit fully to the direction of the Lord...THEN He will make our way straight!
So simple, and yet so complex! I challenge you to make Proverbs 3:5-6 a way of life! You will truly notice a difference in your life if you do!!
