Over the past couple of weeks life has been rather testing. The stress levels have been quite high and my faith levels have been at a low. But God is forever faithful and I have learnt over the years to put my faith in Him. Sometimes it takes these kind of moments to remind us of what a faithful God we serve.
Three particular verses from Proverbs keep me going when times are tough:
‘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.’
‘Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble.’
‘In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.’
I love the book of Proverbs. Such wise words that encourage us and keep us going. No wonder it is known as a wisdom book of the Bible. May these three verses encourage you in your walk with the Lord and may your faithful step be a big stride in the right direction.
