Proverbs 3: 5,6 – “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.” The verb ‘trust’ is complimented by the verb ‘lean.’ Trusting in God is a conscious dependence on God, much like leaning on a tree for support. The idea is reinforced here by the command to ‘acknowledge Him’, which means to observe Him and get to know Him, in the process of living. In doing so, a person finds time and time again that God smoothes out our paths on this bumpy road of life.
