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 (make smooth or straight) your paths. Proverbs 3:5,6
This was the first word God ever gave to me, words to live by that encouraged me and humbled me when I received it. His word became my food and nourished my spirit for all of these years and as I meditated on the revelation, His Spirit strengthened me and brought peace and tranquility into my life that at that time was in chaos!
There are four things in this scripture from Proverbs 3:5-10 that God is wanting us to know and practice in order for our lives to be filled with His provision and guidance. Trust Him, Acknowledge Him, Fear Him and Honor Him and all these promises will come upon us. If we trust Him, He will direct us, if we acknowledge Him, He will make smooth our paths, if we fear Him, it will be health to our bodies and if we honor Him with our possessions, He will prosper us!
There is great blessing available to those who practice the principles of God and take Him at His word. To live in the Spirit and thrive, one must believe and take to heart all of His promises and He, as He said, will bless us abundantly in all things!
Happy is the man (and woman) who finds wisdom. And the man who gains understanding; For her proceeds are better than the profits of silver and her gain of fine gold. Proverbs 3:13,14
