Message from Renee Trapp, Business Manager


“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

What does it mean to trust the Lord with all your heart? It means that we completely trust GOD with all that is in us, that we rely not on our own strength, and that we give all of the strength we possess to the will of the Holy Spirit. Then GOD can fulfill his perfect will through us and bring glory to himself.

To lean not on our own understanding means we are not seeking to figure the problem out logically. This is not ours to do. If GOD is truly the center of our lives, we live for him and him alone. Do we really believe that he lives? Then we should also believe that we can trust him with all our hearts.

“In all your ways acknowledge him” – this is to fear GOD in all we do. To fear the Lord is to be wise.

Here’s the blessing: “HE WILL MAKE YOUR PATHS STRAIGHT.” Why? Because they are no longer our paths--but his. Since he is perfect, he can’t have any fault in him. So the paths must lead to fulfilling his work, his perfect will, in and through the life he has given.

What is your path like today?
