Today’s verse is one of my all-time favourites. It begins with asking us to Trust in the Lord with all our hearts, which calls us to a faith that goes beyond the intellectual. It’s a deep-seated trust that permeates every aspect of our lives. This trust challenges us to relinquish our reliance on our own limited understanding and to fully embrace God’s wisdom and sovereignty.

The next part of these verses admonishes us to “Lean not on our own understanding”. This is an invitation to acknowledge the limitations of our human perspective. It’s a call to seek God’s wisdom in all situations, especially when circumstances seem perplexing or challenging.

The final part is a promise that God will make our paths straight. This is not an assurance of a problem-free life, rather, it is a guarantee that when we submit our ways to Him, He will guide us towards His best for us. Straight paths represent a life guided by God’s wisdom and purpose, marked by clarity and direction.

Today, in our daily journey, we need to embrace this call to trust in the Lord and to seek His guidance. It’s time to lay down our plans and understanding at His feet and allow His wisdom to lead us. In doing so, we find peace and assurance, knowing that we are walking in the path God has set for us.

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. (Proverbs 3:5-6). 

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, you are perfectly faithful in everything you do. You show your faithfulness to me in caring for me, protecting me, and providing for my needs. Forgive me for the times I question you, grumble about my circumstances, or turn my back on you. I want to be like Moses and trust you even when I’m feeling unsure and my confidence is shaky. Show me one small way I can trust you today. I want to declare your faithfulness with certainty to those around me, so they will put their faith and trust in you. Show me who I can encourage today. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
