A verse that got me out of a day in the pits of depression. For many years the verses prior had been my turn to verses as a Christian:

“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.” Proverbs 3:5-6

Now this verse adds an extra dimension to trusting in God.

“Do not be wise in your own eyes” – What does it mean to trust in the Lord and lean not on my own understanding? To humble myself. Next to the Almighty God, I know nothing. To turn away from trusting in my wisdom and understanding…

Fear the Lord – To be in awe of Him, reverence, worship Him

Turn away from evil – This is what it means to acknowledge God and trust in Him. To turn away from all things that are not His will. Since I was born my feet are set to run the crooked path, but thanks be to God that in His mercy and grace, to His glory, He gave this sinner a new heart and a sonship through the substitutionary sacrifice of His only begotten Son.

There is so much I don’t know, thank You Father for the privilege of being able to learn from You, trust in You. My life is secure in You!
