KEY VERSEProverb 3:1–2
My child, never forget the things I have taught you. Store my commands in your heart. If you do this, you will live many years, and your life will be satisfying.

You gain so much when you trust me, when you choose to follow my ways. I want to guide you or redirect you when needed. I want to place you on a path towards health, hope, and love. But I need you to trust me with all your heart. Your trust is more than token obedience or a half-hearted commitment. I want you to be all-in. In all your ways, submit to me. And all means all. That’s significant. Don’t blindly follow me. Count the cost and if you’re in, trust me!

I want you to have peace, longevity, favor with those you know and meet, health, refreshment, and prosperity in all you do. There’s so much I want to give you. Begin now by surrendering your day to me. It’s good to have a plan, but give it to me. Let me lead you today. Keep listening and looking for my direction.

What areas of your life have you knowingly (or unknowingly) not placed in God’s hands? Commit to trusting God in that area for the next two weeks to see how God provides. If you cannot think of any areas, take time to pray and ask God to reveal any that may be hidden.
