Proverbs 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding;  think about Him in all your ways, and He will guide you on the right paths.

trust in the lord

As humans, we wrestle God with the very gift He has given us – cognitive reasoning and problem solving. This higher-level cognitive process tries to tell us that we know best; however, this is a lie. We are part of His creation and under His authority and ruling.

During my reading and digging today, I learned that the word “trust” in this verse means “to lie helpless, facedown.” Just sit back and think about that for a moment. Let that wash over you if you will! Have you ever placed a visual to this verse? Have you ever visualized yourself lying facedown before Holy God waiting for His commands? This picture clearly represents a servant’s heart.

Let us all seek this type of commitment and obedience to God. I pray that in all things we will trust in Him by surrendering our control! Don’t give in to the “powers” of your mind-you will fail! God will guide you on the right paths if you would would surrender all! Amen!
