“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6.

If you’re a believer and want to know how to live, you’ve come to the right verses.
These may have been two of the first verses I ever learned as a church kid.
Need to remember that these words come from Solomon, the man who asked God for discernment and knowledge of right and wrong and received it.
To follow the point of these verses starts with a full commitment to God. This is not the fair-weather variety of commitment.
I must believe that God is Lord and I am His love slave. I am pledged to do what He wants. I am committed to the realization that He will rightly direct me.
What I should be doing is not always obvious. Sometimes there are conflicting choices. Which one should I choose? If I am fully trusting God, then choosing Godly will come naturally. If I am riding my own wave, then the “right” choice will not be so obvious.
Can there be confusion? No doubt. But my trust in Him must not waver. He knows what’s best. In Him I pursue what my choice should be.
“Lord, I want to walk every step this day with You. I cannot trust myself at all. Forgive me for going my own way. I need You every second. Fill me with You now so that I do Your Will this day. Thank You, Father.”
Wondering what it takes to live a Godly life? These verse supply the answer.
