Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6
There’s something very calming about repeating the words of Scripture aloud. Those who know Proverbs 3:5-6 know the power of saying to themselves, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.”
When you can’t understand the crisis or solve the problem, you can say, “Trust in the Lord with all your heart.” When you can’t bear the pain or withstand the pressure, you can remind yourself to “Trust in Him with all your heart.” When the devil is relentless in attacking, you can calm your nerves by repeating Proverbs 3:5-6.
What does it mean to not lean on your own understanding? Well, sometimes we can’t figure things out on our own. At certain moments in life, we have no answers. But we can acknowledge Jesus as Lord of all the accidents and incidents of life. He can open doors, solve issues, resolve problems, and guide us step by step. He can direct our paths.
Trust in Him with all your heart!
It is just as important to trust God as it is to obey Him. When we disobey God, we defy His authority and despise His holiness. But when we fail to trust God we doubt His sovereignty and question His goodness. Jerry Bridges
