Proverbs 3:5-6 (NASB) says “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 16:20 (NASB) says “He who gives attention to the word will find good, And blessed is he who trusts in the Lord.”
Proverbs 28:25 (NASB) says “An arrogant man stirs up strife, But he who trusts in the Lord will prosper.”
Proverbs 29:25 (NASB) says “The fear of man brings a snare, But he who trusts in the Lord will be exalted.”
Leaning has the sense of putting your whole weight on something, resting on and trusting that person or thing. When we have an important decision to make, we sometimes feel that we can’t trust anyone – not even God.
But God knows what is best for us. He is a better judge of what we want than even we are! We must trust Him completely in every choice we make.
DON’T BE WISE IN YOUR OWN EYES.
We should not omit careful thinking or belittle our God given ability to reason, but we should not trust our own ideas to the exclusion of all others.
We should always be willing to listen to and be corrected by God’s Word and wise counselors. Bring your decisions to God in prayer, use the Bible as your guide, follow God’s leading, and He will make your paths straight.
Matthew 6:33 (NASB) says “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
To receive God’s guidance, we must acknowledge God in all our ways. This means turning every area of our life over to Him.
ALWAYS PUT YOUR TRUST IN GOD
Psalm 143:8 (NKJV) says “Cause me to hear Your loving kindness in the morning, For in You do I trust; Cause me to know the way in which I should walk, For I lift up my soul to You.”
If you always put your trust in God and make Him a vital part of every decision you make and everything you do, He will make your paths straight and grant you a long, healthy, peaceful and prosperous life.
