Proverbs 3: A Hard Pill to Swallow
I have always loved the line “trust in the Lord with all of your heart and lean not in your own understanding.” When you grow up in the church, you are taught this line from day 1. It becomes cliche. But really, when you stop and think about it, it’s a hard pill to swallow. As people we like to be in control. We love to spin a situation, word things just right, get it done quickly and before anything bad can happen, handle it. We like knowing all of our options beforehand “just in case”. But this is NOT the way of God. He tells us to “lean not on our own understanding.” But to trust in His ways and acknowledge Him. We don’t even know His ways, ..... but we do! They are poured out in His love letter to us in the pages of His book! We just have to take the time to get to know His ways, and then be with Him!
