[Proverbs 3:5] Trust in the LORD with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. [New Living Translation]
As you all know we live in a world bent on a self – centred mindset causing many to believe that we can get through life merely by our own strength or the knowledge we have gained thanks to the people around us.
However, from today’s scripture reading we see that it’s through trusting the Lord and having full dependence on Him is when we can truly grow as believers, not only this but if we go further into the book of Proverbs we find in [Proverbs 9:10-12]
The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding. For through wisdom your days will be multiplied, and years will be added to your life. If you are wise, your wisdom will reward you; if you are a mocker, you alone will suffer.
That through wisdom our life can be prolonged and for us who are still in youth verse 12 tells us that wisdom is for our benefit meaning that if we ask God for wisdom in our daily walk with Him we grow not only in trusting God’s direction for that particular situation but also reverence (fear of the lord).
To conclude, in order for us to grow in trust for the Lord we must be willing to have faith in what God has placed in our hearts to set out to do and learn to ask Him for wisdom before setting out to do what we plan, it’s not only for our benefit but also for the sake of gaining a better understanding for what God has planned for us as young people.
Thank you Lord for this beautiful day and for using me to bring the message You have written through my hands, thank you Lord for blessing us and help us to go to You both in difficult and joyful times, teach us to trust You more in our daily walk in Jesus Name Amen.
