Proverbs 3:5-12 The Message (MSG)

Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give him the first and the best.

Your barns will burst,
your wine vats will brim over.
But don’t, dear friend, resent God’s discipline;
don’t sulk under his loving correction.
It’s the child he loves that God corrects;
a father’s delight is behind all this.

Lord, I have been sulking lately, resenting Your discipline. I know You’re not punishing me, but teaching me, correcting me where I’ve gone off track, where I’m lacking in love. Please forgive me for kicking back against that. Show me how to do better. Help me to listen for Your voice and Your guidance and stop trying to figure it all out on my own. When I stop fighting and surrender to You, life is so much easier!Thank You for Your many blessings. I want to be a child You can delight in.
