Proverbs 3:5-6 - Poster by mostpato Proverbs 3:5-6 - Poster by mostpato
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

‘Trust in God.’ People trust many things. Some trust money. Some trust governments. Other people trust luck or fate. You might trust your family or your church. Sometimes all these things will fail. But God never fails. ‘God is like a castle. We are safe with him, because he is strong. He is always with us. He protects us whenever there are troubles.’ (Psalm 46:1)
‘Your whole heart.’ Perhaps you trust God sometimes, but not at other times. Some people become Christians, but do not trust God with their whole hearts. God is part of their lives, but only part. Maybe they want God at home, but not at work.
God wants our whole hearts. We should always desire his wisdom. He wants us to live as Christians at work and at home. We must trust God, even when our lives are difficult.
God encourages us to trust him in everything.
‘Do not depend on your own intelligence!’ God is wiser than we are. We may know many things, but God knows everything. We must not be proud. We must not imagine that we are wiser than God.
The future is unknown to us. But God knows the future. He is able to lead us. He can guide us. We should trust him, and not our own ideas. So we should pray to God about our lives. We should ask him to help us and to guide us.
‘Wherever you go, think about God.’ These words remind us that life is like a journey. We shall have many experiences. Some experiences will be good. Other experiences will be bad. Wherever we are, we should think about God. We should remember God’s place in our lives. If life is like a journey, then we must follow God. He knows the right path. His way is the right way.
‘He will clear the path for you to follow.’ Another translation is: ‘He will show the right path to you.’ We can trust God to guide us.

I hope you likeeeeee

This is one of my favorite scriptures! <3 but may I mention that you forgot the "ing" at the end of "understanding"? ^-^

"‘Do not depend on your own intelligence!’ God is wiser than we are. ... We should trust him, and not our own ideas."

Look, I don't mind at all if you believe in God, but I think you are very wrong about these two lines, not just relating to God, but in general. Replace God with anything else and it gets a kind of sinister tone, doesn't it? (‘Do not depend on your own intelligence!’ The government is wiser than we are. We should trust it, and not our own ideas.) Did you think of it that way perhaps?

My intentions are absolutely not to try to "convert you" or something - if you believe, then that's your private thing and I respect that. However, I'd be very happy if you sat for some time and thought whether the approach you mentioned in the above sentences is right.

Have a beautiful day :)

Hmmm, I think the passage is saying to not rely on only your own understanding.  It is not saying abandon all your own understanding.  God knows more then we could ever know.  And even if it was not God, it might be good to get advice from others when you can.  God is all knowing and all seeing, and he is good.  He can not be equated to a government that has flaws (as all human creations have flaws).

Exactly :)

Besides this is a scripture quoted from the Bible, not the artist. The first guy who made the comment you replied to made it sound like the artist is the one who thought of these words, made them up in the spot or something like they haven't existed for thousands of years.

Esto fue de bendición para mi vida, justo en un momento donde mi mente me intentaba llevar a otro lado, uno debe fiarse de Dios sin importar lo que tu mente y el enemigo digan en contra de el Señor.

Dios te bendiga.

You're welcome. I have done the same thing before, so it's always nice to have others look it over for you.
