(Proverbs 3:5 KJV) Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
As I drive the freeways to work I sometimes ponder how to respond for the day to the question, “How are you?” I rarely use “fine.” I like the way that I have heard Dave Ramsey respond with, “Better than I deserve.”
Today I am suspended between an awareness of how blessed I am and a lack of enthusiasm about the day. It is like driving the ultimate car but being low on gas. The Lord came through by having me read one of the most familiar passages of Proverbs. The Holy Spirit reminded me of it at a key time. It is like saying, “Stick with the obvious. It works.”
So? I am reminded today to trust, to avoid depending on myself. It is a good place to start. It is a good place to finish. Join me in the experience.
