3:5 Trust - Wholly rely upon God's promises and providences. Lean not - Under this one kind of carnal confidence, he understands all other confidence in bodily strength, wealth, or friends.

''Lean not'' is a Command of God,just as He said ''thou shalt not''eat of it(Genesis 2:17)for it was destructive,and so is also our own understanding in life,so We must submit,and get the understanding of God(Proverbs 4:7)in the matters of life.

IT WAS AN ENCOURAGEMENT THIS MORNING I HAD A LOT OF THINGS; CHILD WRITING EXAMS IN A WEEK`S TIME BUT NOT READING AND DAUGHTER DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND AND KNOW WHAT SHE IS GOING THRU AND BUDGET NOT BALANCING. BUT GOD TOLD ME NOT TO RELY ON MY UNDERSTANDING BUT TO GIVE IT. RIGHT NOW MY BURDEN IS GONE.

This scripture is telling us to put our trust on the Lord for whatever is happening in our lives, we must know that God is always there for us and we must not depend on our own understanding because we are His burdens

just heard from my regional manager telling me to close down my branch cuz well, business is pretty low. yet rental dues at the office & home r in excess of three months; i hv the whole time been rationally been thinking on hw to get around this prayerfully tho! anyhw, to realize that this scripture profoundly hints that i should literally let go & let GOD, to kinda be in honey moon, a holiday while some else oversees my affairs is not only confusing but demands patience & resilience. qn is by tiring & worrying wl i sort anything?! this hv i failed to do for the past three months. so what do i gotta do if not to trust & obey a mysterious~simple supernatural omnipresent GOD who has got good plans for me & u?!^

At the moment, im going through a Trying time in my life. My wife as left me a year ago, i am left financially with burdens. My salary doesnt cover my debts. This scripture helps me to thank Jesus 'i still have my job' i will continuely seek the lords guidance in my life. He will make a way where there seems to be no way? That's the great i am ... We serve. He knows all things, and he as a plan? For each and every one of us. Amen.

Trust in the Lord with all thy heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. The scripture tells us that wisdom is the principle thing; therefore seek wisdom, but above all thy seeking get a good understanding. They Lord will guide us with His eye when we trust totally in Him, and not lean unto our understanding. Jehovah has all knowledge, and knows the end from the beginning. So have faith in God, and He will never fail you.

God can be fully trusted with our lives. If we just rely on ourselves we will miss it. He knows the right choice every time.

Giving God full control in our life so that he direct us in our daily life
Josephine's comment on 2013-05-29 16:10:22:
This scripture helps an remind me that Jehovah's understanding is greater than ours ,it is he we love with all our hearts and trust in him with all we got.When we human rely on on our on understanding it ends up all wrong,because w humans cannot rule ourselves look at the wars and other things result from our own understanding!

This verse gives me the blessed assurance that I can confidently believe in God to care for and sustain me in every situation of life.Trust means that I believe, and if I believe, it becomes easy to trust.

This proverb gets me through each day. Going thru a very difficult period in my life and rely on the Lord to direct my path.
Julie's comment on 2012-08-10 11:46:08:
Applying this verse to our daily life is so very important...We must get on our knees and pray anytime we feel like we are going to falter...Thank you Lord for all of your teachings...
Tim's comment on 2012-01-31 15:43:34:
It is funny how people think they can fool God, in some ways think they can make a deal with God, or his teaching only are for others and not themselves.Trust in the lord with all thy heart and lean not on your (or mine) understanding for he will direct thy paths. what a wonderful promise for one that truly knows Christ as their saviour. reach out for him today he wont let ypu down,and remember GOD HATES SIN.

If you have been born again, trust that your Heavenly Father will always take care of you no matter what you may be going through.
