Take a moment to ask the Lord if anything is clouding your internal signals, and trust in His promise to make your path straight.

From Proverbs 3:5-6:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

To trust God in the light is nothing, but trust Him in the dark–that is faith.

From Romans 13:12:  “The night is far gone, the day is near.  Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armor of light.”

Our part.  Trust God wholeheartedly, in every corner of life, recognizing that He is the One in charge.

From Proverbs 3:5-6:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own insight.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make straight your paths.”

Always First

From Exodus 20:1-3:  “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery; you shall have no other gods before Me.”

From Psalm 100:1-2:  “Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.  Worship the Lord with gladness; come into His presence with singing.”

God is God.  He knows what He is doing.  When you can’t trace His hand, trust His heart.

From Psalm 118:8-9:  “It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in mortals.  It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.”

Righteous Living

From Jeremiah 29:11-12:  “For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope.  Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you.”
