Proverbs 3:5-6

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.

Alright so a friend and I were having a real close talk about our faith, and how we don't realize how unhappy we are without God. We might be happy with the things we have, but God takes that away from us and we hate him for it. We dont realize he takes the things we want away to show us his love, becuase naturally one wouldn't think that someone who loves you would take away something you value. We saw how obvious it was and realized that HE does that so that we see what He has done for us and what he does every day of our lives. He wants us to be truly happy with Him before we're truly happy with everything else. Even though we discovered that, it didnt really sink in until i got home, and searched online for Powerful Bible Passages. I searched and all i came up with is people tryin to sell something. I took a last ditch effort and searched powerful bible verses, and the first hit on the search engine and the first passage on the page was Proverbs 3:5-6. It hit me so hard i nearly cried. I dont believe in coincidences and the fact that this passage, the topic being almost exactly what my friend and i were dancing around that night, is amazing. I was stunned that i never really paid that much attention to this passage before, as ive seen it in Bible study many times, and God showed me through this 'coincidence' that He's there and im begginning to see what He wants me to see. I've totally renewed my faith from this passage and i hope that other people will do the same

How awesome that God led you to that verse. I am currently in fasting and prayer and I kept hearing that verse over and over again. I am looking at each word and the one that stand out to me is "acknowledge". What that is telling me, am I publicly letting people know I am a Christian and standing up for my faith? I think I am falling short in this area so I need to acknowledge him more and more. Thank you for sharing your journey with others, for you ARE acknowledging Him through your blog.

Thanks for the nice compliment! What a blessing your able to slow down and have some time for prayer and fasting. I always feel so rejuvenated in the Lord after doing the same thing.

Enjoy your time with Him!

I am truly thank ful for this chapter and verse because it is vital to our walk with God to Acknwledge and trust is hime. A lot of times we want to feel like we have control over our lives and the out come of all our endeavours. But we are not God is. This is difficult for some to do. yet east to say. Yes I trust God or I acknowledge him, but in our daily lives we really dont. God is good and he is able regardless of rather i believe it or not.
