Proverbs 3: 5-6 (NKJV) 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
I know that these words from this section of Proverbs is meant to be more instructional in nature, yet I find them to be quite relational…comforting…and very reassuring.
The words “trust” and “heart” bring out a depth of faith that could only be found in a heavenly Father whose love and wisdom is beyond all comprehension…where “lean not on your own understanding” moves from an exhortation for daily living to a peace that surpasses all understanding…and out of that peace, a heart in despair can once again reach up to “acknowledge Him” with open arms to cry out Abba Father…and He returns that love with the blessed assurance that “He shall direct your paths”.
Thank you Father…Great is your Holy Name!
Blessings to you and yours,
