Read Proverbs 3:5-6 together. What do you learn from these verses about trusting God? For the times when you have no idea how to trust God, Proverbs 3:5-6 unlocks the keys to trusting Him. From these short verses we learn that the first thing is to not trust in ourselves. Relying on ourselves can be deceiving because we do not always have all the information. We can’t see what’s around the next corner or tomorrow or next year. Jeremiah 17:9 (KJV) says “the heart is deceitful.” We think we know what’s best, but because God is omniscient (all-knowing) he knows what we don’t. When we don’t know how to trust God, we can call out to Him for help. When we are thinking about Him, we will be more likely to have a surrendered heart ready to do his will even when we don’t understand it. With a surrendered heart, we can follow the path that He sets us on knowing that He is in control.
