“Trust in the Lord with all you heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding” (Proverbs 3:5).
Here is how The Message puts it — “Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD! Run from evil! Your body will glow with health, your very bones will vibrate with life! Honor GOD with everything you own; give him the first and the best. Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over. (Proverbs 3:5-10, The Message).
This passage of scripture gives us the sure and proven way to a life of real significance and security. I encourage you to read this from as many different translations of the Bible you can find. And then to memorize it.
There is much here that is worthy of your full and undivided attention. He tells us to “listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go.”
I assume you are a person who wants to hear God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; to be guided by Him into that which is best, and to be kept by Him from that which is worst. To stay on track when others are spinning out of control. Yes?
And I assume that you want to be healthy and vibrant; to live a full and meaningful life; to wake up in the morning with purpose, and go to sleep at night with satisfaction. Yes?
And I assume that you want to prosper in all things; that whatever you set your hand to do becomes successful and fulfilling? Yes?
Then this scripture is for you! Trust God in all things and at all times. Follow Him faithfully in each and every decision you make. Honor Him with your wealth by being generous towards others. This is the sure and proven way. Wouldn’t you like to navigate your life along its path? Yes?
Well, then do it! You will be glad you did….and so will everybody else around you.
