Proverbs 3:5 & 6
Trust first, then seek.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.
Verse 6 Seek His will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.
Seek His will in ALL you do...and He will show you...
Lord, this morning it seems clear we are to FIRST trust You, then seek Your will, and then You will show us. Embracing Your VISION for our lives first begins with trusting You. I'm going to guess, deep down this is really hard for a lot of us. Please help us to let go of the learned propensity to trust in ourselves, MORE than we trust in You. Help us to be honest with ourselves on this. For some of us, our walk with You has been ten, twenty, and thirty plus years. It may be challenging to accept we don't fully trust You, or perhaps have the desire or faith to trust You.
For some of us, the investment of time it may take to learn to trust, then seek, then see what it is You have to show us - may feel like it is too much. I ask You Father, to help us see where our time may be altered and replaced with You. I pray we are willing to become good stewards of the time You allow us.
In Jesus' Name we pray amen!
