My son, do not forget my teaching,
but let your heart keep my commandments,
2 for length of days and years of life
and peace they will add to you.
3 Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you;
bind them around your neck;
write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 So you will find favor and good success
in the sight of God and man.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
7 Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the Lord, and turn away from evil.
This passage says so much about a life of Trust. When we keep the commandments, when we are living a Spirit controlled life, we a trusting God. His Steadfast love & faithfulness should be my meditation.
Verses 5, 6, & 7 are “classic” trust verses, but do not underestimate the power they contain.
Trust, Acknowledge, Turn –all actions that we must be living out in a life a trust.
