"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."

Memory Verse Monday

Okay, so it’s not Monday.

I missed posting a memory verse earlier this week, and this particular verse has been chasing me ever since.

I taught from this little passage of Scripture for 50 minutes last Wednesday night. 

In other words, today’s memory verse has a whole lot to say!

I know God called me to teach from Proverbs 3:5-6 because I needed to be reminded of the things this verse says so succinctly.

  1. Make a conscious decision to trust God
  2. Trust Him when He doesn’t make sense
  3. Surrender fully to Him because He is God and I am not

If I will do that, if I will

  1. Trust in the LORD with all my heart
  2. Lean not on my own understanding
  3. Acknowledge Him in all my ways

Then He has promised to make my paths straight.

I’m keeping the “if/then” promise contained in these verses ever before me.

Hopefully next week I’ll find the time blog about the other two things God has been hitting me over the head with. (I can’t hold these truths in for much longer.)

For several weeks now, every minute of my day has been filled to maximum capacity. (Hence the trickles of oil flowing from this jar and onto this blog lately.)

But I have much I can’t wait to share. (Oh how I wish there were 48 hours in each day!)

In the meantime—as the hours rush by from dawn to dusk—I’ll be trusting in the LORD wholeheartedly.
