Proverbs 3:5

“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding.” (NASB)


“Trust (batach: to have confidence, to be secure, to cause to trust, to feel safe) in the LORD with all your heart (leb: mind, understanding, wisdom, inner man, mind, will, heart, understanding, knowledge, thinking, reflection, conscience, seat of emotions and passions) and do not lean (sha`an: rely, rest, trust in, support) on your own understanding (biynah: wisdom, knowledge, discernment).”


Be secure and have confidence in the Lord with all of your understanding, will and emotions. Do not rely on your own wisdom and knowledge.


What is your security and confidence placed in today? What does your hope and rest rely on? Is it in your worldly accomplishments and endeavors or is it in your identity in Christ alone? If my identity is in myself and what I've done, it is not enough. Today, place your entire confidence in the Lord. Allow His wisdom and knowledge to guide you.
