Proverbs 3~day 3

October 4, 2010

This chapter has one of my favorite verses in it:  "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and He will make your paths straight." (v. 5,6)  I think these two verses really sum up this chapter: the benefits of wisdom and walking down the right path.  There is a whole list of more things to do and not do: "fear the Lord and shun evil" (v.7), 'honor the Lord with your wealth' (v.9) 'do not withhold good from those who deserve it, when it is in your power to act' (v. 27)
All these verses and more are so great to read over.  It could be a lot to take in and remember, but that is why we keep reading.  So we remember His words and put them to use in our own lives.  The first verse I mentioned I really needed to be reminded of.  Such simple words- yet they're so powerful and filled with so much promise.  If we simply trust in Him with our whole heart, realize He is 100% in control and in all our ways acknowledge Him, He will lead us down the most amazing path in life! 
In a matter of a few hours this morning after I work up, I got three job rejection e-mails from places I have (and have not) interviewed at.  I am getting incredibly discouraged and each e-mail I get knocks me down another notch into sadness and despair.  I need to keep in mind everyday- especially at this point in my life- that God is in control.  He knows what and where I'll be and what's best for me.  There must be some very good reasons I haven't gotten a job yet (I hope!) but I do know, financially, it can't last much longer.  I will do my best to remember those verses and keep praying I find a job here that I love.  God will provide!
