Proverbs 3:5 (ESV) Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding.
I found out that he knew what he was doing. As we hiked through the woods, we became disoriented and lost our way. None of the surroundings looked familiar. Not sure what to do next, my friend said, "Trust me." Today's verse speaks of trusting God with all our heart and not leaning on our own understanding. As he began to walk, he simply said, "Follow me." Without choice in the matter, I began to follow him. After a few hours, we found ourselves on a familiar path that lead us to our campsite. I wasn't sure how he did it, but I learned to trust him. Sometimes in life, we may not be sure just where God is leading or what He is doing in a certain situation. It is then that we need to trust Him with all our hearts. In the end, we will see He will lead us on a path of safety. The key is to let go and let God… whether we understand or not.
