Proverbs 3:5-6 (AMP) Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. 6In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].
I love this passage. We are commanded to trust in and rely confidently on the Lord. When? All the time. Even when the storms of life swirl about us – we trust in Him. Even when work hours have been cut – trust in him. Trust and rely on Him when nothing makes sense. We might not understand everything that’s going on right now and that’s okay because we’re not to rely on our own insight or our understanding. We ARE to acknowledge and recognize Him – thank him for leading you through all the years of uncertainty and for being faithful and constant – He has not forgotten you and will not forget you. The promise of this verse is that God will make your paths straight and smooth as you trust and rely confidently on Him and not your wisdom or understanding.
None of what you face today is a surprise to God. Cry out to Him who is our mediator, who prays on our behalf – be confident in knowing that Holy Spirit prays for you with sighs and groanings too deep for words (Romans 8:26-27). There is comfort in knowing that Holy Spirit cares deeply for us and prays continuously for our every need. ~ Brad
