“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Proverbs 3:5-6, NIV)
Peace that passes understanding, joy in diverse circumstances, contentment in whatever state we are in – these are lessons to be learned only as we pass through life’s experiences. While living in this world, God has promised us that He shall direct us as we trust Him. Whatever I might face, I know that God has it all figured out.
Prayer: Thank you, God, that You have everything figured out! I pray that You will direct my paths and that I will trust you completely. You are worthy of my trust! May we continue to lean on You rather than our own understanding. Amen.
