In His Word Wednesday -- Trust

A couple of my favorite Bible verses is Proverbs Chapter 3 Verses 5-6
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own
understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths
straight.
***
My Study Bible goes on to explain and break down the verses...
***
Trust in the Lord -- Commit your way to the Lord, like Israel's forefathers, who trusted in God and were rescued (ps.22: 4-5)
**
with all your heart -- Like Caleb (Nu.14:24 ; Dt.1:36) or the godly King Hezekiah (Isa 38:3). David challenged Solomon to serve God with wholehearted devotion (1 Ch. 28:9)
**
acknowledge him -- Be ever mindful of God and serve him with a willing and faithful heart (1 Ch. 28:9; Hos 4:1; 6:6)
**
Make your paths straight -- He will remove the obstacles from your pathway an bring you to your appointed goal (11:5 ; Isa 45:13)
****
***
Now it's your turn! What has God been teaching you lately. Do you have a prayer request? Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you? Even just words of encouragement. I would love to hear from you!

You can even just leave your words or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!

Have a Wonderful Day!

Thank you for sharing the break down for this verse. It is one of those I have memorized and heard a million times but to sit down and truly think about each phrase - thank you - I needed that!
