But when all is said and done, this is what God's word says in Proverbs chapter 3 and I'm in the reader to one of the most often quoted verses of Scripture Proverbs 3 verses five and six. This when all is said and done. Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight.
That fantastic. I'm I'm not going to you 90 next to anybody in Judges chapter 18, we found the Dana acts. A warning to go and settle in the land.

We have the opportunity to talk and pray it connects with great resources at the other end of 8668 is our prayer that you draw the number down or stored in yourselves a contact where here at 866899673. First and foremost, to pray with you and for you, but also to connect with great resources so much as been done this month about loneliness and we have a book that was written by a good friend of Dr. Wilson's Jackie's and call the loneliness solution and remove out of this unique season. These last 12, 13, 14 months of uniqueness and very windy way separation and loneliness. God has answers that will help us strengthen our personal relationship with Jesus and conquer that sense of loneliness in the book is on our website at tewonline.org G that's tewonline.org G, we can call about your copyright now at 866899 word that's 866-899-WORD 9673 that activates teaching with Dr. Don Wilton when we just do God's will isolates what is God invites us to three things number one to trust.
Trust in the Lord. This is God's way. Now we've given all the other and then the sun invest wisely and forgive people, it when all is said and done, God tells us to do 233 things. Number one is to trusting what is that mean it means festival to have firm belief in him. Believe God. That means trusting site, you are wrong.
I've got firm belief in you number to have confident hope from him when you firmly completely believe in him you have confidence in your hope that you get from him and trust in the third instance means that you talking you lean on him and that that would they leave.
We I think there's a song lean on me lean on me on.
I love that word it it carries with it that that wonderful idea that as I go through through life. I have my Jesus to kind of lean my weary body on to hold on to to to go to and I just trusted him because he's just solid man. God, this I'm not leaning on the stock market. I'm not leaning on my body even though I take good care of it not try my body is still my body it's dying it's flesh I'm on, I'm going to do everything I can to forgive the person that hurt me, but all at Sarge probably ought hard to do but when I leave.
When not trusting him. Unlike putting everything on to the one that will never give way. It's beautiful.
First thing he says this is to trust it. That's the first invitation that's that's why we were invited to join the journey. Second, to acknowledge him acknowledging him is different from trusting him. Why does Jesus why does this passage say trusting the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, what does that mean well, it amongst many other things. It means accepting his position acknowledge God means you accept them. It means you gotta remove the BU T but accepting well on this occasion. Me, us, not not know when you acknowledge him, you accept the sovereign God that you trust in someone said say put it like that, God say that that savings that a technology it's not like God you know this is what God say is I wake up America. This is not the time at which he lived back then. He's changed his mind by now and doesn't get it. We are more advanced today and so so God keeps on morphing his position on morality. You know he's changing his mind about marriage being being between one man and one woman. He changed his mind about that. He's not current.
Always change these mind about abortion. He's changed his mind it's it's okay under yeah it it just if you just don't want a baby will then just get rid of it that's fine. He changed his mind about life to acknowledge God means to accept his position and then to recognize his ability.
God give you knowledge him. You not only accept his position as God he's supreme. The sovereign in every way. He's the mighty God. There is none like him. It seems that we live and move and have our being.
And in so doing we recognize his ability to do everything that he says he will do without exception).
I made everything there's nothing that falls outside. It's not like God. Yes, he will stand by his word, accepting none God is absolute, and we accept we recognize his ability. And third, two acknowledging means we appreciate his involvement that's acknowledging him he's involvement yes and everything in our life, because he loves me he loves you do know that that God wants us to acknowledge he is involvement in everything he's interested in dating he's interested in our divorce. He's interested in are paying he's interested in our addictions. He's interested in out all the things that we go through in life. He he is.
He's heat when we acknowledging we accept these position and we recognize he's a deep, and we appreciate his involvement on a single thing that falls outside of the parameter of our God in our king number one what's God's invitation here when all said and done Jacob you know I'm trying to take care my investments and forgive others and and and and jog every now and again and not not eat so many doughnuts and and I'm you know I'm trying to all of these things I'm trying out got my this is I'm going to be a good citizen and I'm going to smile more and I'm going to I want to do the base and I'm going to get an education on the study hard and I'm going to order the single win over Satan done what is God's doesn't say sweep that aside, say sweep that aside make this irrelevant, but when all is said and done, he gives us three invitations I want to trusting number 22. Acknowledging the number three to depend on all your ways acknowledge him and he he will make your paths straight. You can depend on just depend on absolutely depend on him.
Now, what does it mean to depend on him.
It means to accept him totally all tough for us humans to do this accepting tone rely on him totally healed Michael Paul strike God will do this.
Submit to him totally. You cannot follow the Lord Jesus and not submit to him at the same time, those two things don't work, you know, we talk about it been marriage, for example, I love her. She loves me. You make a commitment together these no variation on that is no alternative. When you depend on him. You accept him totally. You rely on him totally and you submit to him totally you give yourself to him, Lord, here I am so they really off three invitations that he gives to us, want us to just think it did. This is to take away with us this what God is saying to someone he invites us to accept God's purpose except God's purpose for your life and it begins with the fact that God loves you so much that he gave Jesus to die for you. That's the beginning of that because he made you he made you he knows you.
These purposes that you would belong to him that you would, that he would be your savior in your Lord that you would live a full given life a full and meaningful life. That's God's purpose if if you accept, listen, if you accept God's purpose you're saying just as I am, just as I am very fit there.
It is just as I am with all the warts in the whiskers just as I am of all the struggle. Just as I am with all the addiction. Just as I am with all the personality variations just as I am with all the mistakes, just as I am with all the successes and the blessings, the joys, just as I am, without one plea. There is no I'm not coming to God when I accept these purpose and saying to you know I believe that you love me and that Jesus died for me, but I need you to know this first you need to do that. This is without one plea have to come you not to lay it all down there you not interviewing for a job you're accepting a personal relationship yet to come with you. Biography. You have to try and impress God with your pedigree.
He knows accept these purpose.
Number two. He invites you to engage in his plan. God's got a plan for his children lost week I spoke about the rock got a plan with the church solid rock be part of the church today I'm going to invite you to put your roots down.
