What was the first verse you ever memorized?
For me it was Proverbs 3:5 and 6
“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.”
Here is the Christian life in its clearest and most basic terms.
Trust the Lord and acknowledge Him.
It took me a long time to fully glean the simplicity of this wisdom.
My own understanding kept getting in the way.
I thought there was much more for me to do than merely trust the Lord.
But the more I added the more confused and frustrated I became.
Maybe that’s your story.
Let me encourage you today to simply trust and acknowledge the Lord.
You’ll rejoice in how he will make your paths straight.
