Proverbs 3:5 (New International Version)
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
Such a common verse and I'm sure most if not all have heard and some have even memorized it. But are we really living according to what it says?
According to Merriam Webster TRUST means to hope or expect confidentlyto go or to do something without fear. and
What does that really mean?
This verse is not here for us to just say and memorize because we'd end up just like the pagans described in the Bible. But actually we are to live it as a way of life. When times get rough, when problems soar, when situations just overwhelm us, when it seems nothing's right anymore then it's time to TRUST: to Hope and to Expect Confidently on the Lord! Hoping and expecting that He'll do something.
And when there's challenge ahead and it seems insurmountable and unattainable then it's time to TRUST: to go and to do something without FEAR!
Now, that's what Proverbs 3:5 is all about!
