Many of us have read or memorized Proverbs 3:5-7 and I wonder if we really know what God is saying to us? In my NIV Bible notes it describes “Trust in the LORD” as committing your ways to the Lord (Psalm 37:5), like Israel’s forefathers, who trusted in God and were rescued (Psalm 22:4-5).
As my NIV notes continue it uses the account of Caleb’s “following of God wholeheartedly” in Numbers 14:24 to define “with all your heart”!
So just these two notes makes me ask myself, “Have I committed all my ways to the Lord and am I following Him wholeheartedly, with every fiber in my body”, despite my circumstances?
Great food for thought on this rainy Saturday morning as I continue to pray for a few friends who are struggling and as I continue to settle in my new home, in a new area, where the hubs and I believe, wholeheartedly, that God has brought us to! As I ache for one particular friend, am I really “trusting in the Lord” in their circumstances? As I unpack box after box in my new home, am I preparing a place, with a heart for God, to invite others in to see Jesus? I will meditate on these questions for sure!
I welcome your thoughts on this verse and how God has used it to speak to you in your life!
