theWord

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 words “trust in the LORD” echo the command of Deut. 6:5 to love God with all our being. The verb “trust” is complemented 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 and get to know Him in the process of living. In doing so a person finds time and time again that God knows our very needs and provides them.
