TRUST IN THE LORD
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 (make smooth or straight) your paths. Proverbs 3:5,6
This proverb was the first word God gave me after I was saved and learning how to hear His voice. It remains my favorite to this day. Trust is the key to all of our kingdom blessings stored in the vaults of Heaven.
Too many times we tend to lean on what we perceive something is instead of trusting in His wisdom. Our own understanding will always disrupt His plan for us. If we will only submit and acknowledge that it is He who is in control He will make straight paths for our feet! Every day when I begin my walk with Him I pray for Him to go before me and make the crooked places in my life, straight!
If we would only ask Him for His divine guidance and Holy Spirit direction, we would never be lost or deceived by the detours of life. As the old adage states, "Trust and obey, there is no other way!"
Lead me, O Lord, in Your righteousness because of my enemies; make Your way straight before my face. Psalm 5:8
Your servant in Christ, Timothy Laughlin
