Wisdom: get to know God. Trust

1) Holy words long preserved for our walk in this world,they resound with God's own heart, oh let the ancient word impart.
words of life words of hope give us strength help us cope in this world wherein we roam, ancient word will guide us home

ancient word ever true changing me and changing you we have come with open hearts oh let the ancient word impart

2) Holy word of our faith handed down to this age come to us through sacrifice o heed the faithful words of christ
Holy words long preserved for our walk in this world they resound with God's own hearto let the ancient word impart

3) Martyr's blood stains each page they have died for this faith hear them cry through the years heed these words and hold them clear.


Dave Ens pastor
Proverbs 3.5
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own heart. Parallelism. Or Trust in the Lord with all your understanding and lean not on your own understanding. We like to say to God, help my life to go the way I think it should go.
What does it mean to acknowledge God? Oh hi there you are? Hello?
In Hebrew it says 'know' God. Discover what God plans for you.
How do we get to know God? Study. Practice what we know God wants us to do. Walk with God in the everydayness of life. In all your ways... get to know God every step of the journey. Live with eyes open towards God.
There is a direct correlation between the time spent to know God and the ability to trust God.
A youth pastor came to talk to Dave. I don't believe in God because he hasn't answered my prayer. I prayed that a certain girl would come and ask me out but she hasn't.
Proverbs 16.3 let go to the Lord whatever you do and God will establish your plan.
Saul's priest is doing through the rituals to get God to listen to him. Jonathan says this is ridiculous. If God wants to defeat the enemy he'll do it. Jonathan moved ahead with his armour bearer. God have Jonathan the victory. 600 people can't beat the enemy, but 2 people and God can.
Listen and God will make your path well and right filled with integrity. The manner in which you live your life will be straight.
In every situation you can walk in honesty.
