As we open the Word of God, please look at the book of Proverbs (3:5-6)
“Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy way acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
As I started out in my Christian walk and ministry, this is the verse the Lord really laid upon my heart. It is a verse with much meaning and truth, a verse that will point you directly to the only one who has the power to save you for all eternity and the only one who can keep you safe in his arms; that one is the son of God, Jesus Christ.
You will notice I did not say “trust in man.” Man is a fallen creature, and the Bible says, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
There are many who trust in themselves, saying, “I am a good person.” You may be decent and moral, and you may lead a good life, things which are commendable, but they will not save anyone. The Bible tells us, “there is none righteous, no, not one” (Romans 3:10).
