Proverbs, Chapter 3 has one of my favorite verses, and I’m sure that is exactly how some of you feel.  As I was reading through it, I just had to delve in and look at two thoughts in Proverbs 3:5-6 and 3:3.

when your heart speaks

S:  Scripture

Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)  Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding;  In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your path.

O: Observation

No matter what I am going through, no matter what mistakes I’ve made,  I have to trust the LORD with ALL my heart – face down trust before Him.  I have to live in surrender knowing He is in control of directing my path.

A:  Application

God’s source to teach us is the Bible.  It is like a road map.  We have to pull over and read it to find ourselves as well as get directions for our everyday lives.

K: Kneeling in Prayer

Lord I want to obey you.  As I soak up your Word teach me how to truly trust with ALL my heart.  Amen!

S:  Scripture: He taught me and said, “Let your heart hold fast my words; keep my commandments, and live.” Proverbs 3:3

O: Observation: I have to HOLD fast to the words of God and forget any words that the enemy speaks to me.

A: Application: I need to let His words soak in. I need to LISTEN. I need to memorize. I need to let His Word permeate my life and my home displaying His Word through plaques, etc. and talk/teach His Word just like people do sports, weather, etc..

K:  Kneeling in Prayer: Father, I pray for daily wisdom as I read through your Word. I pray that your Word will grip my life and it will flow over to others.

  1. Oh yes – I love this portion of Scripture… and oh how I need it when I forget and tend to lean on my own (limited and skewed) understanding! Great post!

  2. This is one of my favorite proverbs as well. A few months ago I dreamed and heard Proverbs 3:5. I thought God give me that scripture because I was sharing at the women shelter. Later, I learned it was for me because I lot of change is happening in my life. Thank you, for sharing.
