Trust God!

Proverbs 3:5-12 (The Message)

5-12. Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
don't sulk under his loving correction.
It's the child he loves that God corrects;
a father's delight is behind all this.

I don't know about you, but I try to figure everything out! Usually I just get a headache! Why do I do that? I do trust God, don't I? I sure don't claim to know it all, but there are just some things we should know, right? Well, it is a lot of questions. But in this passage our Lord is lovingly instructing us as is His nature. He only wants the best, so what is the problem? He is really telling us here to put Him first and listen to His voice in everything. Run to Him with our problems and concerns and then honor Him with everything we are and have. This next part about discipline is the hardest, isn't it. But I can tell you after raising 4 daughters, if I hadn't disciplined them, as Jerry Clower used to say "just shoot up here amongst us, somebodies got to have some relief" (grin) then the Lord only knows what would have happened to them. But because I was rather strict, I have 4 daughters that have good jobs, are wonderful mothers and wives and are decent human beings. So I know this "discipline" thing is hard, but it is for our good and to tell you the truth, I am so thankful my Heavenly Father loves me enough to help me become the very best person I can be. So I am going to try really hard to not whine to much when these times come, because Sister, they will come. Enjoy your day and be blessed!
