Proverbs 3:5-6- “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight.” 

How comforting it is to know that God knows us better than we’ll ever be able to know ourselves. That He cares for us, that all His plans and ways are perfect, and that all we need to do, is to trust Him with all our hearts.

Despite the infinite possibilities that we can come up with, and even after much consideration we end up choosing the one we think is the best – it does not come even close to the one the Lord already has for us.

Our understanding is so limited, our heart is so deceiving, our vision is so near-sided, and our strength is so less — compared to everything God is.

How truly amazing it is to know that He wants to take care of us; that He freely wants to give us His wisdom; that He wants to instruct us and teach us the way we should go; that He wants to guide us with His eye that sees everything; that He wants to make our paths straight.

“From God alone comes true prosperity and true help. He knows the right way to the right ends. He knows what benefits us. He can free us from that which does us harm: therefore, it is our duty and our safety to place our confidence wholly in Him and to trust not our own judgment.”(K & D Biblical Commentary).

There is no God or any person like our God. Love Him! Trust Him! Obey Him! Praise Him!
