Action Required – Trust and Submit

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

Our action word verses today are often shared because they are rich with action words and a terrific promise. Remembering our action word “study,” these two scriptures are powerful ones to study and memorize.

Trust doesn’t happen without submission. Whatever I’m trusting in God for requires that I turn loose of it, submit it to Him. “All” means all and more: everything. What’s the promise? God will guide us. The Message Bible reads: he’s the one who will keep you on track.

It was not in my plans to move 300 miles to help care for my mother and my sister. I knew that it would be challenging and require some sacrifice on my part. As I prayed, God answered so emphatically that I had no doubt that it was His plan. What a blessing that move has been!

I was as surprised as anyone that the seven years with Mother and ten years with my sister confirmed His plans for all of us. He changed my heart. Who did I think I was anyway? I get sad when I consider how those years might have been if I had not submitted my plan to Him. I learned a lot about myself and about my heavenly Father.

Are you off track or on track?  Is your path straight? Are you trusting Him? Submitting to Him? He wants to walk with you on a straight path. He will never leave you.

Awesome God, thank You for Your faithfulness to keep us on a straight path as we trust and submit to You.
