Two short verses – Proverbs 3:5-6
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways acknowledge to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
Today – And He will make your paths straight.
Here is the ‘payoff’ – the promise.
If we trust and acknowledge Him, He will respond, He will be our guide.
It all comes back to trust, and we saw on Monday that it requires 100%. Helen and I never knew last year that we would be residents of North Lincolnshire by the summer (If you hadn”t recognised the ‘voice’, this week’s notes do indeed come from Julian who generously sent them despite having moved away – thanks Julian!). We did say to each other that we trusted God for the move, and now we are here. There were frustrations, but in the grand scheme of things, nothing that stopped it.
God’s purpose and plan for your life was written before the earth was created. He is working it out for us. Are we willing to take the ride?
Prayer: Help me to trust you, on sunny days and on stormy days. Situations may change, but you never do. Amen.
