5Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. 6Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take. 7Don’t be impressed with your own wisdom. Instead, fear the Lord and turn away from evil. 8Then you will have healing for your body and strength for your bones.Proverbs 3:5-8
My takeaway from the readings in Proverbs this week are these verses in chapter three. Many times I wonder what God is up to, not only in my own life, but in the world. It doesn’t seem like he does things quite the way I would do it. So I remind myself of this wise principle. Especially challenging to me is verse 7 – “don’t be impressed with your own wisdom!” That’s something we all need to hear now and then.
As I was putting this together, the song “Trust in You” by Lauren Daigle played. It seemed almost like God had put it there just for me. Enjoy the song and have a great weekend!
