DAILY READINGS: Exodus 32:1-35; Psalms 81:1-82:8; Acts 19:21-41

Trust in the Lord with all thine heart, and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 

Many things we buy say “some assembly required.” We may think the included directions are not for us. We can do it without instruction. It usually does not end well. God tells us here that if we want our path to prosper, we must follow His step by step guide. We may think we know better. But He says to trust Him with all our heart. Don’t trust your understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him. These instructions produce success. Any other plan fails. Humbly follow the directions. —Ken Gross

Trust and obey, for there’s no other way,
To be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. —John Sammis
